An Octogenarian’s CI Journey
We are pleased to share Bruce Sloane's blog, An Octogenarian’s CI Journey, detailing his passage to improve his quality of life with a cochlear implant. His story began more than thirty years ago when he noticed a change in his hearing. It is typical of an adult who has progressive hearing loss. He was fit with his first hearing aids. He continued to experience loss of hearing acuity. As his hearing deteriorated, he experienced further changes in his ability to communicate in various settings. He was fit with stronger hearing aids with limited benefit. Finally, a turning point occurred that helped him move forward his decision for a CI—thanks to an accidental meeting with a CI recipient in a supermarket. This meeting changed the course of his hearing loss journey dramatically. The blog will focus on Bruce's decision to pursue a cochlear implant, the medical and audiological evaluations, the surgery, and the early outcomes. Please join us in following Bruce’s warm-hearted story.
