I've just returned from a hearing test with the audiology team at the Norfolk & Norwich Hospital. As suspected, the hearing in both of my ears has decreased since my check-up last year but they say there is a new and more powerful digital hearing aid now available, which may work better for me. I need to go back to the hospital in two weeks time to get them fitted.
They also asked me whether I have thought about having a Cochlear Implant. I haven't really, as I'd never thought I was suitable. A lot of thoughts are going on inside my head and I am thinking, "Wow, really?".
I am to let the team know whether I would like them to refer me to Addenbrooke's Hospital in Cambridge when I go back in a couple of weeks. I don't know what to do.
