My Story

Hello Everybody

 

 My name is Chris and I am 41yrs old and I have been wearing Hearing aid for 35yrs. I have use BTE for long time And few years with ITE. Few weeks ago I realize my hearing has changed. I talk to My Audiologist about it. We replace the ear mold and that didnt help, so we did the hearing test to see if that will help and it didnt. She told me that it has gone worse than it was 5yrs ago. The only other option she has for me is this Cochlear Implant.
