I have severe to profound hearing loss in both ears, wore hearing aids for the last 30 years. Recenly i went to my audiologist for my yearly hearing test and i was told that my hearing level has surpassed the point of what my hearing aids could produce (basicaly there turned all the way up). I can still here but it sounds very soft in most cases. I haven't made my apointment as of yet for the coclear implant evaluation.
My biggest question is with coclear implants am I going to be totaly deaf now until I get them turned on and then while there not in?
