They said yes. Indeedydeedy they said YES. I need to sort out some meningitis shots and once the CI clinic have that information confirmed they will give me a date. They are talking about June. What a great birthday present that will be.
For the technically minded I am going to be fitted with a Med-el Maestro with a softsomething or other electrode and an Opus 2 speech processor. For the non technically minded I have chosen bright red as the colour. It will be the right ear, this makes it easier for me when driving as I will be able to hear the passenger, it’s also a better choice for hearing as I am right handed and it’s better to use the dominant side.
It’s the stuff of science fiction really but once I have a cochlear implant fitted I will be a cyborg.
So for a Star Trek fan and a superman fan then a Med El and cyborg combo is pretty neat. They can’t guarantee that I will look like this afterwards
