Great news! It is a long process having to relearn how to listen and understand sounds and words, but you will be amazed at how much progress you make with the CI! As a CI user for 4 years, I can tell you that you won't regret your decision to get the CI, whereas if you stayed with the hearing aids, you would always wonder "what if". Good luck on your surgery!


Congratulations Mad! I chose the Freedom, too and so far am loving it. Very exciting and keep us posted on how the CT scan goes.


Mad, it's a huge, scary step but I am optimistic that you will look back on it and feel enormously grateful. I know there is a huge pain in the ass factor, but that part will pass and you'll be left with all the benefit of your hard work and investment. I think it's easy, when you're in your own shoes, to think you're doing fine and not see the possibilities. I got some new aids this year and can't believe how much more I hear with them, yet if you'd asked me whether my old aids were fine, I would have said "yes" without missing a beat. In other words, I think that although you're fine as is, you're going to hear so much better with the surgery. I am super excited for you and will send you LOTS of good vibes all day on the 16th (I'll be driving from Iowa to Austin that day so I'll have lots of free time to think good thoughts for you!).
