    What are your general questions about cochlear implant?

    For that matter, what are the questions that come to mind when you hear about cochlear implant? That's assuming you know about it. If you don't know about it, I'd still like to hear from you, too!

    I do have a question. Do the sounds compare to what things normally sound like...is it true sound versus sounding tinny or with an echo like in a tunnel.  How does it work exactly?

    I've been wearing an implant for 12 years now.  Graduated to the Harmony BTE about a year and a half ago.  The one persistent problem is keeping it on my ear.   I use the Tmic, but it often jumps off my ear.I've tried using duct tape, but it soon loses its sickness

    Second question, is there any chance Advanced Bionics will develop a battery pack that holds, say watch batteries or the batteries I used to use with my hearing aide?  That's the one thing I miss about my body processor.  It had a battery pack that held double A batteries. 

    Third question, I wish I could use a patch cord with my BTE.
