I am now the proud recipient of my first cochlear implant, the Advanced Bionics Naida Q70x. There is no doubt that I was, and still am, excited about this new journey. But it is too soon to be contemplating another surgery for the left ear.
Don’t get me wrong, the surgery went exactly as expected. But surgery is never expected to be fun, or easy. I have an enormous bandage strapped rather tightly around my head, with what I believe is a massive wad of cotton over my right ear. Very attractive.
When the Tylenol/Codeine starts wearing off, it is unbelievably painful. Not the worst pain I’ve ever felt, but it’s high up there in the ranks.
Can you believe I’m not very inspired to write today?
