April 7 2010 Deafness Newsletter


Hello everyone
I've recently undergone my second cochlear implant and am in my third week of switch on. While my second implant hasn't reached the hearing level of my first (which is pretty much normal hearing) I am understanding speech, even hearing on a phone! And music! I can hear harmonies again. Amazing.

I can only say having a first implant was LIFE CHANGING, but having a second implant is WOW! I DIDN'T REALISE HOW MUCH I WAS MISSING. Over the next few weeks I will be examining some of the decisions, processes and outcomes of the journey from totally deaf to almost full normal hearing.

Here's the latest article from the Deafness site at BellaOnline.com.

Cochlear implant decision
When I examined why it takes someone so long to make the decision to have a cochlear implant I expected fear or surgery, fear of failure and so on was the main reason. I was therefore surprised to realise there are far deeper reasons, often ones we don't recognise which makes this decision so hard.
