This week will be two months since I went deaf:

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!!!!!!!!!

I just want to find out what's causing the pain. I mean I know it's the implant but I just hope it's because it's defective not my body rejecting it ...

Not trying to be rude. And im sorry for what you are going through. But I want to ask, whats it like to be deaf? Complete silence? Ringing?

Me too. I can't go to the er because no one there knows how to treat me at that moment. I have to wait to go to a specialist. The brs agent is putting my case under emergency because of the pain I'm experiencing. So I hope it's gonna be real soon...

Oh no I am so sorry.  I just found out that I qualify for Cochlear Implant in my right ear.  I am deaf in right ear and hard of hearing in the left.  I had a hearing aid for my left ear but it broke and its been a really tough few months I can't afford to fix it.  Good luck.  please keep me updated on this.

IT depends for me in my right silence but also rining as I have tintitus (SP?).  I hear nothing if I sleep on my "good" ear I don't hear my dogs bark, kids get up or the alarm go off.

I mot definitely will keep you posted about it. I have had the implant for 10 years. It was amazing hearing. Good luck to you =)
