humor of all varieties is highly appreciated on the Forum by most of us - and by Lori and me in particular; sometimes we have our very own side-show
You asked about the BAHA. Here is one of my favorite links http://www.umm.edu/otolaryngology/baha.htm
Another good one is www.cochlearamericas.com
Post op I COULD NOT STAND being SSD
I found it very depressing, felt way older than I am, etc., etc., etc. (but I have to note that not all SSD folks feel this way).
Anyway, back to me
I had the BAHA implant 9 months after my AN surgery - would have had it sooner if my insurance company didn't drag their feet agreeing to pay for it - and I totally love it. It's made a huge difference in my life - both @ work and @ home. I recommend them to anyone who is SSD. Like most who've had AN surgery, I wasn't thrilled with the prospect of another surgery that involved my skull, but the implant is done outpatient and is in general a piece of cake. I even had mine with local anesthetic.
There are lots of posts on the Forum about BAHAs - and even a picture of my head with and without my BAHA device - just search on BAHA.
PS - Lori, would you PLEASE keep your halo from slipping so Phyl can get some rest???
And you thought she wasn't watching out for you, didn't you? LOL
