- Implanted AgeMiddle-aged AdultHearing LossSlowly ProgressiveImplantedLeftI am a full-time programme manager and suffered gradual hearing loss from early-20's. I also suffer from tinnitus. I was implanted in 2015. My world is now full of sound and it has been life-changing. Thanks to AB and the Oxford CI team.
- Implanted AgeMiddle-aged AdultHearing LossSuddenImplantedRightI am married and live in London. I lost my hearing quite suddenly through an auto-immune disorder in 2010. I now mentor other cochlear implant candidates as I enjoy helping other people living with hearing loss. I am a keen Man City fan.
- Implanted AgeMiddle-aged AdultHearing LossSince BirthImplantedBothI was born hard-of-hearing in both ears and wore hearing aids up until I was 21 years old. I totally lost my hearing suddenly in my right ear and for 30 years, relied solely on my left ear with it having about 65% hearing ability. I received my first implant in my right ear in 2005 and then got my left ear implanted in December of 2016. It is a truly amazing experience in hearing things for the first time and discovering new sounds and learning to identify them.
