  1. Could anyone write me the phone number name adress of this doctor please my nephew is only 5 years old. He suffers from severe hearing loss , a reason for his speech delay, which necessitates a cochlear implant operation as soon as possible … The worrying thing is that in Tunisia this operation hasn't been performed before … and that we must undergo the operation for him in any developed European country in This kind of operation …. Can someone refer me to doctors?

  2. I had the same surgery in 2010. While the video makes it seem like a short and simple operation, it's actually quite long and delicate. Longer than it takes to do triple bypass (so I've been told). I was on the table 5 hrs. Post op and recovery was fine. Thank the Lord for Fentynol and morphine. But my body gets used to morphine practically overnight and becomes ineffective. So after the first day I was on my own. Due to dizziness I was released after 4 days. Good enough to walk. After 2 weeks I was still a lil bit woozy but good enough to work. Actually getting back to work seemed to speed things along. But I'll tell you they do severe quite a few smaller nerves when they debase to the skull. It's unavoidable, but they do grow back. For two months half my tongue felt like it had fresh pepper on it. It was amazing to learn just how important nerves behind the ear can effect the mouth and tongue. Yes those nerves grew/healed and everything went back to normal. I just wished Dr's would have prepared me for the possibility of this happening. Despite the hard time "I had" with recovery, I have no regrets about having it done. Just remember, everyone is different. You may not experience dizziness at all. You may not have issues with pepper tongue. You may get released from the hospital after day 2. Just remember….. It's not a simple surgery. It's time consuming and delicate. If you can remember (like I did) that even though you're heavily sedated when they wheel you into surgery, try hard to thank the surgical staff in advance. It means a lot to them and you won't get a second chance.
    BTW, you might cry for joy when you first get turned on. Me, I laughed my butt off for 30 minutes. Everyone sounded like Daffy Duck (it's normal) but that goes away in a day or two.

  3. Does it change the sound of someone’s voice you are used to hearing? I guess I’ve heard it makes it sound mechanical. Is this true?
    I’m falling out of the moderate-severe hearing loss range into the severe range.

  8. My hearing is mild to moderate loss. I've been wearing hearing aids since I was 6 years old. At the time (in the 80s ) barely anyone wore them. At least for me growing up.I was the only kid in my school who wore them. Even when I went to highschool. Once again out of the whole high school I attended I was the only kid that wore them. I got picked on so much as a child for being different. I attended speech classes and special ed classes throughout my many years of school. People thought I was considered slow due to having hearing loss. I was very much bullied by my fellow classmates. Talk about how mean kids could be. I dealt with that my whole childhood life. I would come home crying because I was different. As I got older I learned how to accept my disability. And realized it was ok to be different. Now as a adult I embrace the fact that I am unique and special in my own way. I still have a hard time reading outloud. And year things different than what others hear. My boyfriend is very patient with me and teaches me how to pronounce my words correctly. I literally learn new things everyday. I see it like this I was bothering gift and I'm blessed to be my own unique person.

  10. Having a profound hearing loss is not fun. I wear hearing aids and they help but sometimes I still cannot hear like I want to hear. My dad's hearing is much worse than mine. We are looking at Cochlear implant for him. My dad and I are both veterans so the VA has been helping us with our hearing aids.
