Erin’s Uncle Jim, my brother, had a cochlear implant today at UCSF.
He was in and out of the hospital in 6 hours. He told the nurses that
on a scale of 1 to 100, he felt like a 300. The surgeon said he had
perfect anatomy …there were no surprises when he went to do the
surgery. A few hours ago Jim had had no pain, nausea, or dizziness.
The implant will be activated in a little over a month, and then there
will be several weeks of training to use it.
