Living With A Cochlear Implant

  • Programming (mapping or tuning) your sound processor is like having a hearing test but your Audiologist (the person who programs the sound processor) programmes it for you.
  • People who have Cochlear Implants have to wait 4 weeks before they have their Implant programmed. Since the skin must heal.
  • People say that their Cochlear Implant sounds like Daffy Duck, a bad PA system, in other words, everything sounds funny or fuzzy.
