Hello all, for those who didnt know I was born hard of hearing, and the past few years became Deaf.

I am officially cyborged!

Damn, Mike! I hope they at least installed a tuner in there somewhere so that you can run faster!

Seriously, though. Hope everything goes well my man. Good luck!

Looks good. Hope it works out for you. I have hearing loss of 25% in one ear and 30% in the other.

How much of your hearing will the restored with the implants?

I had only about 20% word recognition, I really couldnt tell apart B,C,D,G...ect.. all sounded the same to me.
From what the doctors and cochlear say, I should regain 90% or better.
Right now I am completely deaf in my right ear, no residual hearing left at all until activation on Jan 2nd. and start my first mapping.
My new processors will be wifi compatable, direct connect to radio, tv and my new iPhone6....lol

Mike I hope that everything is going well, both with your hearing & the house

You have to watch out for that WiFi & Bluetooth, someone could press their garage door opener button & your tongue will stick out
