I am a a 66 year old female with a profound hearing loss. I have worn hearing aids for 24 years since the onset of my HL and received a cochlear implant 18 months ago, because I had no useable hearing in my right ear and my left ear was slowly getting worse than it was. With my CI my balance has improved, I can determine the direction of sounds, I hear & recognize a wide variety of environmental sounds, with my CI I recognize more sounds and hear voices, although I still do not understand all spoken words.
