A very wise plan, indeed. I still am working on my Post Operative Headaches which get in the way of my following up on the hearing problem which is minimal compared to my hearing since I retired on disability because of all this. I can't get the BAHA because of my headaches and tenderness on the scalp, I just don't want any more surgery there even though the BAHA is a small surgery, I just don't want to upset the apple cart with all the headache problems I have. It turned off my ENT who specializes in BAHA and Cochlear Implants, as he was eager to schedule me last June, but that's the way I feel. I've suffered too much to take any more surgery.
I am a personal friend of one of the developers of the Sonnitus. He's a dentist out in Calif. and I send him comments from the threads on Sonnitus. They should know how we feel about it in order to make a better product and from what I read recently on that thread I don't want to go for it in spite of the personal aquaintance. You live in the Bay area and you could have been a study protocol participant. Why didn't you go for it? I guess it was too late since you were recently operated on.
That leaves me with TransEar and the woman from Michigan really likes it. She got a good fitting probably and that must be the key to success or failure of the TransEar working. I'd like to give it a try and might even go to the office in Tennessee to get it fitted since the audiologist locally that was highly rated didn't even return my call asking for procedure codes to file with insurance.
The people at TransEar respond within a few hours and I like that.
You come from the Bay Area. I used to go there a lot because of my father's connection to Stanford and my daughter being in school at Stanford. Lately I am tied down to Maryland and DC because my 96 year old father moved in with me and I responsible for his 24 hour care. Loved California and all the wonderful things you can do there. You're lucky to live there.
