My 15 year cochlear implant review… May 17, 2009

Posted by loz121 in Uncategorized.
On the 27th of May, I have my 15 year review at the new cochlear implant centre! I don’t know whether they are going to offer me the new Freedom behind the ear CI. Although if they do, I am able to keep my old mapping because I just hate the slightest change in my mapping. Im sure i’ll put up a mini fight if they want to put a new mapping in and stick with the 3G but maybe since I’ve had the 3g esprit for a good couple of years now and i’m quite used to it. Im not sure if i can make the change to a different BTE but if they offer me it, I’m going to try it out at least see if it makes a difference. I never do like the change of a mapping when its just been changed! I think it sounds all funny but I always give it some time to get used to it and maybe put the old mapping on another setting on the CI if possible if I can’t get used to it!
The only thing they said to me last time I was at the centre was that because I have an old version insdie my head that some of the features on the Freedom may not work with it. Thats the least of my worries anyway! I just want it to sound ok! hehe
but 15 years, its gone by so fast, its come to the point I hardly notice it on my ear anymore! I sometimes have to double check I’ve still not got it on when I’m in the bath! hehe
The review should be intresting! 😀 I’ll let ya know how it goes!

your inside ci is compatible with all ci versions. My friend has a really old version as she was one of the first children in the uk to get it in 1992/1993 they gave her the freedom a few years backunless theres another reason

Richard, my mate got the freedom, he used wear 3G.. he prefer freedom saying it look really nice and it sound better too..go for it.. have a try.. if you dont like it after a few weeks you can ask for 3G back!
