Hi there, as the user name implies I am in the UK, (I have posted on here before though!) so greetings all!
I had retrosigmoid surgery in 2011, followed by a Sub Total Petrosectomy and Blind Sac Closure surgery due to a CSF Leak. As a result I dont actually have an ear canal on the AN side. I have done some research into the different sorts of hearing aids available, but believe I am restricted to only a BAHA owing to the lack of ear canal to sit the bit-that-goes-in-the-ear... sorry, cant think what its called!
Can anyone give me a low down on all the different ones, and where and how you wear them? Here in the UK, information is scarce, and although I can find some of the hearing aids themselves, the websites dont tend to go into detail about where & how you wear them, so I cant figure out what I could or couldn't have. I know in the US you can call your surgeon to ask them, but you cant do that here... you have to start with your GP & wait for specialist referrals from there. I thought I would get a far quicker, & I bet more informed response, on here.
Any help would be hugely appreciated!
