Well it’s been nearly two weeks since my operation and I’m about to go back to work. Since my last post I have been healing well and the innitial dizziness has subsided. I have to say the pain has been minimal and the worst part for me has been the increase in my tinnitus. The best way to describe the noise I had in my head was………when I could hear………….standing on a station platform and the noise you got as the train pulled in. Loud and unpleasant. Thankfully now that has gone and I am back to a reduced constant washing machine on spin cycle sound that, although annoying, is far more easy to tune out.
It’s now just 2 weeks to my switch on and I have come across a great little video which describes how the CI works. I have done lots of research on the subject so I know exactly how it works but I find it quite hard to describe it to thers sometimes. Have a look and see what you think.
Not much more to say now until my switch on. I’m off to see if I can get any fridge magnets or bottle tops to stick to my head 🙂
