I met with the Senior Audiologist on Friday 19 at SCIC HQ
Thank goodness for the Health Advocate, acting as my ears. Even so, the organisation seems very welcoming for people in my predicament.
We went thru the physiological aspects of the implant, with an actual bit of someone's skull! The little bones and the tunnels. Very awe-inspiring. Very.
It appears that my situation is good for the implant. I'm in the queue
Once the implant is implanted, via surgery, there'll be a healing period before switch-on [seems they have a term for this], when the implant is activated.
Then there'll be approximately six months of adjustment, both the implant and me I expect.
Waiting on the next appointment
