- Implanted AgeYoung AdultHearing LossSlowly ProgressiveImplantedBothI'm a Texas Aggie who is going back to school to work on my Ph.D. at Texas Tech...still an Aggie through and through. I lost my hearing at the age of 3...at that time, I was lipreading and speaking so my parents chose to take the spoken language route. I was fitted with hearing aids immediately and wore them until I was 30 when I discovered my loss had worsened and there was not a hearing aid on the market that would work for me.
- Implanted AgeOlder AdultHearing LossSlowly ProgressiveImplantedBothStarted loosing my hearing in late 30's and was fitted with hearings aids in 1995. I was a customer service agent spending 8 hours a day on phone and struggling until I retired in 2005. Still struggled with phone and noisy situations and could not hear all of what the minister said at church. I was implanted in the left ear in September of 2013 and my hearing got so much better I had the right ear implanted in April of 2015.
