Hi all ..... I'll start out with a biggie
cause my BAHA is on .... well, at least the demo is till I get mine fitted in mid-Aug (patient-audiologist vacation conflicts, doncha know - scheeesch!).
Since AN surgery in 11/04 left me SSD, I've tried transear and cros aids, but the first was uncomfortable, and the second was not effective ..... for me. So BAHA was the next thing to check into .... and glad I did!
Just got the BP100 snapped on Monday, after waiting the requisite 3 months for the titanium implant to osseointegrate (yep, that's right) with my skull. I really think there are tiny tiny Swedish workers on the implant adding super glue every once in a while to make sure it properly bonds to my skull .... well, ya never know.
But the time passed quickly, as others have expressed, and the highlight of the waiting period was receiving a special care package from two fine forum posters, Jan & Lori.
The processor was programed with my needs in mind (usual situations that I'll encounter) by my audiologist, with the help of two Cochlear reps .... Megan and Rich from Mid-Atlantic area. I'm delighted at the difference with it turned on.... it's truly working for me very well. Using this demo till my own arrives, I'll have time to try it in diff situations to make sure it's the right model. I could opt for the Intenso with more power, but the BP100's enhanced programming intrigued me from the start.
Best to you with your decision-making!
