Whoa! I'm at a total loss hear, I can't find very much info on these Hybrid Cochlear Implants on the internet.

Does anyone on hear have a hybrid cochlear implant?
Anyone have any thoughts or suggestions please?
I'm scheduled to get a hybrid or EAS cochlear implant soon. You are right that there isn't a lot of information available online about them. If you are a Facebook member, there are several Hybrid CI groups you can join. I'm hoping that they will be able to save my residual hearing but I'm also hoping that I don't lose it later. I live in NC near a clinic that has done a lot of hybrids. The company they like to use is MedEl. Hope this is a little help to you.
