I was not successful in gaining my bilateral implant. The NHS refuses to pay for it, hopefully it will be changed later this year. I am now 21 years old and I am a blogger over at wordpress.com http://ajourneywithacochlearimplant.wordpress.com/

I'm Melissa, I'm 19 years old and was deafened shortly after birth.
I live in the United Kingdom, I am the only deaf person in my family. I was diagnosed as severely hearing impaired at 9 months. 7 years later my left ear progressed to a profound level. I got my cochlear implant at the age of ten. I wear a hearing aid in my right ear which is also profound. I am awaiting my next appointment in the stage of CI assessment to go bilateral.

I stick around and lurk, I'm here if you have any questions!!
