Just to clarify -- JerseyGirl is Eve, who uses a TransEar; I'm JerseyGirl 2, Catherine, the one who wears the BAHA Intenso!
I hope that things go well with your BAHA appointment on Wednesday. I think (and certainly hope!) that your audiologist will be the most qualified person to help with your decision regarding the best BAHA for your specific needs. So what I'm going to say is strictly my opinion.
I wouldn't be inclined to wait for the introduction of the enhanced Intenso (what we're assuming will be the BP200) -- it could be many months away, and since you're ready to attach a processor to your abutment NOW, I would hate for your brain to be missing out on good "re-adjusting to a different way of hearing" time. I should add that I agree with those doctors who feel that patients who start wearing their BAHAs as soon as possible after the onset of SSD experience the most dramatic results. Their brains haven't had time to fully adapt to SSD and can more readily adjust to the benefits of the BAHA. My hearing loss was so gradual over the course of a number of years that my brain was compensating quite well to my SSD before I got my BAHA. If your audiologist thinks that your good ear isn't perfect, or close to it, he/she will probably recommend the Intenso.
I believe the Cordelle is pretty heavy duty. I don't know any AN-related SSD'ers who have one (but I'm sure there must be some). I've always sort of thought the Cordelle was designed more for those BAHA wearers who are using BAHAs (either one, or any many cases, two) for conditions other than SSD. As we know, the BAHA was originally developed for use by such patients. We AN-induced SSDer's are just the happy beneficiaries of all that research and very fortunate that someone along the way realized that it was a great device for us. That being said, I would imagine that if the hearing loss in your good ear is severe enough, your audiologist will suggest that you give the Cordelle a try.
Best wishes for your appointment, and let us know what happens!
