Hi, my name is Jonatan and I am 29 years old.
I received my first hearing aids when I was 2 years old and my hearing was getting progressively worse. From I was about 12 years old and ten years forward my hearing was stable but in the recent years it had started to get worse again.
I had therefore started to notice a long range of social situations in which I felt that it had become more difficult to hear. I met a couple of Cochlear Implant (CI) users at a camp for young people with hearing losses and that made me interested in finding out if CI could be a solution for me.
This blog is a presentation of all of my CI journey since I in August 2012 started to investigate if CI could be a solution for me.
The result of this journey is that I had a CI surgery in both of my ears on February 28 and that I received sound on April 8. I am therefore one of the few that has received 2 Cochlear Implants at the same time and which has received CI sound on both ears at the same time.
I am now in the process of my rehabilitation which you can read much more about in the recent and upcoming posts.
