Cochlear implant film: episodes two and three

medel switch on

Episodes Two and Three of the film are now available.

Episode Two is about the operation, which is almost exactly a year ago (a year last Thursday, to be precise).  Episode Three is switch-on, which took place on 7 December 2017.  It’s hard to believe that a year has gone by since those events.

If you are new to the blog and would like to read what I wrote at the time here are links to At the Hospital and Switch On Day.

As before, subtitles can be found by clicking on CC at the bottom of the screen.

The picture, by the way, is from Episode Three.  There I am, at “switch on” with the speech processor (on my head) connected up to the audiologist’s computer (at the end of the long black wire) and sounds being fed in for the first time.  Nigel sits behind me, looking worried.  We were BOTH worried!  Who wouldn’t be?  But it was fine……

  1. The interviews were extremely informative, Vera, especially for those of us awaiting implant. Great to see it in ‘action’. Thank you. xxx
