    Actually I got your message and replied to it. Did you get it?

    Admin, if you're reading this, seems that we're able to send messages but that the sent messages aren't also saved in the sent folder? If you can fix that?

I am in the learning process and it is an interesting journey.
    Hi touches,

    I have been considering a CI and if I go for it, I would be like you and have implant in one ear and HA in the other. You said it is an interesting journey and I would like you to please elaborate on that. I would love to know more about what your experience with a CI in one ear and a HA in the other is like.

    Since others seem to have an interest in this CI post...
    You stated you have had CI for 9 years, I am very happy to hear from you.
    During 9 years have you had troubles with the processor?
    What about upgrades?

    FWIW.. I have an acquaintance from a "trade" forum that went with AB and a Phonac HA.
    He said, he could hear, but he had a problem with determining where sound was coming from.
    He has just been approved by insurance to get a second CI. He is very happy.

    Sure, I've been happy with my CI. I also know of some users that's had their CI's for 20 or almost 30 years, etc.

    Most of the troubles I had with my CI are just little external ones like having to replace the coil or needing a new microphone protector and so forth. Kinda like the ones one would also have with an HA.

    I've also upgraded once thus far. First getting the Freedom in May 2008 and then upgrading to the Nucleus 6 in January 2015. Whereas the Nucleus 6's processor is smaller and also has some extra features like the remote which I use often and that some of the older models didn't have.

    yes, getting there but still needs patience and additional tune-up but is better than hearing aids

    Please keep us informed in your progress.
    Did you before or do you afterwards have tinnitus?
