Most do know my son was same years ago when he was swtiched on. Just let him discover the world of sound for the things we take for granted like toilets flushing and doors closing

Very best of luck

Yes. The sound of toilet flushing was our favourite. In the first month after switching on we spent extra 1 m^3 of water just on that.

4 weeks in and all going great, in fact its probably only 3 full weeks given how low the settings were the first week but even still its amazing to see him turn to his name being called or getting excited when i say 'ready steady........go' etc! He's doing great and all the specialists appear to be very happy with his progress so far so fingers crossed that all continues

Hey guys,
My implant surgery is scheduled for next Wednesday 27th July, and I'm 18 years of age. I have Severe to Profound hearing loss and when I was younger I used to be around Moderately severe hearing loss.

What I hope to achieve from this implant is to be able to engage in conservations without relying on my lip reading and to be able to hear on the phone again.

Anyone like to share their experiences with me?
