It's been a long time, but thought I'd stop in to share.
I'm all healed up, and life is back to normal and has been for a long time. I'm running, biking, and doing martial arts and everything else.
I had gotten the Baha, but I actually haven't used it much, probably haven't put in on in over a year. Most people do not know I am deaf on one side unless I'm in a noisy environment.
So for those facing surgery, even if complications arise, know that you can get through it, and that you can get everything back on track and that life does return to normal.
