The chosen submission for the Spring 2017 Issue is Christine!

My hearing had been slowly deteriorating for many years but In 2003, I found that I had contracted mouth cancer and in 2004, I had an operation to remove the tumour from my lower jaw and part of my tongue. As a result of the post operative treatment, involving a course of radiotherapy, I found that my hearing deteriorated significantly over the next few years to the point where I was recommended for hearing tests to see whether a cochlear implant “might give me back my life”! I understand that nowadays hearing tests are given before and after radiotherapy to the mouth to ascertain if there has been damage caused to hearing because of the treatment. These tests were carried out at St. Georges Hospital, Tooting, London in 2014 when they confirmed that I should benefit greatly from an implant which was carried out last year.


After only 5 months and diligently carrying out all my audiologists instructions, I am hearing so much better and people have commented that they don’t have to keep repeating words/sentences and also that my speech is greatly improved! If I find myself in a particular noisy situation and want some peace, I just remove my Cochlear Processor! I have bought from Cochlear a Mini Mic 2+ which is particularly helpful in a group situation but has many other uses, a TV Streamer and a Phone Clip, which can be used only with a Bluetooth phone. These are very useful accessories. They are used in conjunction with the Programme Controller which was given to me by my Audiologist. St Georges will look after me and all my Cochlear needs for the rest of my life which is very reassuring.
