I am getting really nervous for re-implantation. Today I found out surgery is at 9am on Wednesday January 18th, 2012. I have to be at the hospital two hours early for pre op, no later than 6:45am. On Facebook there is a CI group that I belong to and one of the parents was confused. I had mentioned that I have been having pain and cannot sleep on my implant side. She suggested that I take the Implant out. So I wanted to clarify this here. The implant is surgically implanted into my skull, that cannot be removed.
These photos are taking from Cochlear's website.
Here is a picture of the N5 Cochlear Implant that will be removed on Wednesday.
I will be re-implanted with the Nucleus Freedom implant.
The outer part is called the PROCESSOR. I will continue to use the N5 processor once I'm activated again.
I should be back on Jan 19th depending on how I feel. Have a great night!
