After battles with insurance, jumping through the state’s hoops, a small procedure and recovery time, today is the day I received my Bone Anchored Hearing Aid. It was a odd experience when the audiologist turn the device on. Everything was quite loud. If you can imagine I haven’t had hearing in both ears for a long time. The best I have been able to hear is about the equivalent of having a finger in a one ear. For the next few days I will be adjusting the levels and trying to get used to hearing things differently.
The device is quite small and if you are looking head on you might not even see it.
The clip I am wearing in the second photo is a remote that I can wear or put in my pocket to help mute or turn down the device. Also if I wear it I can sync my iPhone to my device via Bluetooth and listen to music or have a phone conversation.
With all of this technology you would think they are going to put a man on the moon one day. :)
It has been a long road and I can not wait to see what happens next.
