I contacted measles at age 6. At that time, I lost a significant amount of hearing and progressively lost the rest by age 30. I am 52 and decided on the implant when I realized it could benefit me.
From age 30 on I've been using sign language and interpreters. I will be activated on 12/31/2009 and am looking forward to ringing in the new year with sound!
