OK, I'm relatively new to this but nobody mentioned drying beads or boxes.....are these only for Cochlear BAHA units? No-one said to do anything to my Ponto except clean the mics with the brush.
Unlike many of you and many on the UK site, I had absolutelky almost no problem with my incision or the abutement, but we threw out the tooth-brush when it pulled loose a stitch. Since then I wased daily in the shower and my bride cleaned the site maybe two times per week with Q-tips and peroxide. Now that is all healed, we use a little alcohol to clean the abutement.
I do find it interesting that seemingly all of us have an abutement that seems slanted, I though I was the only one.
