What are the scores, George Dawes?

I did the standard CI speech recognition test this morning, which is used to measure progress in understanding speech in CI recipients. Here are my scores, along with the previous ones from 6 months and before.

Pre-op: 14.3%

One week post-op:

CI and Hearing aid: 6%; CI only 0%

3 months post op:

CI and hearing aid: 26.7%; CI only 6%

9 months post-op:

CI and hearing aid: 81%; CI only 55.7%

CI and hearing aid in noise: 48%

The average at 9 months across all Beaumont CI recipients is:

CI and hearing aid: 64.1%; CI only 59.5%

CI and hearing aid in noise: 38.6%

So, pretty good I think. I certainly feel the improvement in almost every way. My score at 12 months (3 months time) should be better still, at this rate.

I nearly ripped off my left big toenail last week, causing quite some pain that still persists, but such was the spring in my step as I walked back to the hospital car park after today’s appointment, I didn’t notice it at all.
