- Implanted AgeOlder AdultHearing LossRapidly ProgressiveImplantedBothI am a retired Law Enforcement Officer and during my working years I was a member of an Hazardous Devices Team and was an explosive detection canine handler. I still work training Detection canines in various disciplines and will continue to do that for a few more years . Along with that and a family history of hearing loss, my hearing started to fade. I wore hearing aids for a number of years however they stopped helping me hear. Now I am bilateral and loving it.
- Implanted AgeMiddle-aged AdultHearing LossSince BirthImplantedBothI was born deaf and was implanted with internal implant of HiRes90K in 2005 and Auria processor. It failed 9 months later. In Oct 2007, I was sequentially bilaterally implanted with HiRes90K and Harmony processors. I was upgraded with Naida Q70 processors in Sept 2015. I am a mum to my three boys(19,11,9) and also a foster carer and a web designer. I enjoy walking with my dog. When I have time, I enjoy music and baking.
