Hello Cochlear Community!!! My story involves sudden hearing loss twice in my life. My first hearing lost occurred in my right ear when I was a Junior in high school. Two decades later, I experienced my second sudden hearing loss in July 2007. After each loss, no cause could be determined by the doctors. However, this time there was an option. My brillant doctor introduced me to the procedure and technology of Cochlear. I am a recipient of the Freedom Cochlear Implant. To me, this is a miracle. With the implant, I have been able to maintain my independence and continue to be able to work. Just two months after receiving my implant, I was able to enjoy the sound of rain drops of my windshield as I drove home from my initial audiologist appointment. I am overjoyed by this experience and blessed. I can not wait to whole heartedly share this with all.
