Hi Jenny, that is something they have mentioned but to be honest I've not yet really had any information about them just had a bout of perichondritis it just seems to be one thing after another I have another ENT appointment 28th December I'll ask for some information, thankyou 😊
I've decided to learn BSL because I've experienced sudden onset severe hearing loss in both ears.
The ENT has told me there isn't anything they can do to help.
I'm in the early stages of getting bone-anchored hearing aids; this process will take about a year.
I want to have as many communication tools in my arsenal as possible, especially as my hearing is likely to continue to worsen.
I also suffered from chronic infections with in-ear hearing aids. Have you and your GP/ENT/Audiologist ever discussed bone-anchored hearing aids?
I'm trialling them now and so far it's an absolute game-changer for me. They sit behind the ear and use bone conduction to stimulate the auditory nerve; nothing has to go inside your ear with those.
So here's a quick introduction to myself.
My name is Jenny. I'm a teacher and therapist for children with learning or emotional support needs.
I'm learning BSL because I have just recently experienced sudden and severe mixed hearing loss in both ears.
I'm hoping I'll be approved for implantation of bone-anchored hearing aids soon, but that process will take at least a year so in the meantime... here I am!
Hi, I am currently doing BSL Level 1 as I have a beautiful 21 month old grandaughter who has unilateral sensorineural deafness. We had completed some courses through the NDCS and this spurred me on to start my sign language journey 😁
