It has been 4 months now since my 6 month mapping and I feel I'm doing very well. I can hear and play the piano very well and listen to ABBA on my ipod. I sometimes watch programmes on TV WITHOUT subtitles but I still like to prefer them on (in case I miss something). Normally at night when I'm in bed, I take my implant out and read the subs in peace. And I also like to read without my implant in peace aswell.
As for my hearing, I believe im doing very well and I'm due for my next mapping in december. And for sounds - I HATE RUNNING WATER - IT TOTALLY DOES MY HEADING... ARGHH!!!!
Also, I HEARD EVERYTHING (ABOUT 90%) WHEN I WENT TO CINEMA IN JUNE TO SEE MY FAVOURITE FILM - TERMINATOR SALVATION. I cried when the theme tune started coz I thought I WOULD NEVER BE ABLE TO HEAR TO IT.
THANKS TO A BRILLIANT FANTASTIC DEVICE N TECHNOLOGY, I CAN HEAR EVERYTHING
My next aim, is to see n HEAR a NOTTINGHAM FOREST game
