First Implant surgery in September of 2015. I did not get a protective bowl.
Yesterdays packaging, looked very different. Neater for sure:
First incision in September 2015, I added the freehand stuff to try to clear up the implant placing.
Today's unveiling (below), the incision is smaller and neater. Less curve in the incision, that could have accounted for my discomfort last night where the opening had to be pulled back and the ear forward to get the tools in to do the job. Today the discomfort is much less. But maybe I was stubborn and took only one pain pill yesterday instead fo the three (BECAUSE I AM TOUGH! or ignorant!)
Sherry says I am still purty, and that is what counts.
Now the facts are: I am stone deaf without implant assistance but if they both work I have the latest thing on the market for the deaf and hard of hearing. One of the assistants in the surgery took time to tell me about his daughter Grace. She became deaf at three years of age and received the implants. She is now 16 and thrilled every day at her hearing.
Another man told us his wife had two implants and is thrilled. I like good testimonials, but like anyone else, I want to see for MYSELF. For sure, with only my one implant that I have, things are better than back in early Sept of 2015 with the best 2 hearing aids in the industry. So of course, I am anxious to tryout TWO.
We have been told, warned, cautioned, etc, that in the noisy environment situation, understanding, will still be nearly impossible.
Life is good.
