Are There Any Negatives With The Cochlear Implant?

There are some bad things about the Cochlear Implant that include, having a battery on your head, not being able to play contact sport, it costs thousands of dollars, it is implanted (inside you), the battery needs to be changed every day and it can feel uncomfortable. Some people choose instead to learn sign language or learn to lip read because they believe having something artificial inside you is bad.
