Hi Syl, thanks for sharing your experiences! Was curious about your statement that sounds became unfamiliar after your hearing loss; can you describe how these sounds changed?
One thing I'm hoping to retain is directionality, so I can tell if a car is coming up from behind when we're walking our dogs.
Hi Cathie, good to hear that your balance are slowly improving. My Wii Fit said it had been 547 days since I last visited!
I'd always thought if you lost your hearing, everything would go! Had no idea that you could hear things, but not be able to "discriminate" words. Like someone speaking a foreign language, eh?
Good luck with your Phonak! May need a hearing aid in the future....
Yesterday, my tinnitis got much louder than ever been before, and a full-ear feeling. This morning, my hearing seems to have decreased by about half. I know this could happen, but am still feeling a bit distressed about it.
Appreciate all of your input; it really helps to hear others' experiences.
