Today I had an appointment for a check up with my consultant. I arrived and was seen very promptly. A visual check showed that one stitch needed to be cut out. A painless operation. To enquiries about how I was feeling and had I any pain after the operation I could say that everything was fine!! I then had an X-ray and we looked at the picture together. You could see the magnet and the processor and if you looked very carefully you could see the cochlear electrode array with 12 nodules on it. All was well. We said goodbyes and on the 29th August all being well I will be switched on.
