I took my cochlear hearing aid off due to being in pain. I still have the cochlear implant chip inside my head. I have been in pain again recently regardless of the fact that I haven't worn the hearing aid. Last Thursday, I had a frightening experience. I felt an electric shock around my implant site....It was painful for 5 mins. This had me terrified of what's happening to my implant inside my head. So today I walked into BRS ( Bureau of rehabilitation services) to make an appointment for me to start finding out what is going on with my implant. They will call around to find out who is responsible for my implant that may be defective.... The Dr or the implant company. I'm nervous because I will have to have surgery whether I will hear or not. Being deaf hasn't been easy at all!!!!!!!!!
