I had my stitches removed on Thursday, 10 days after the surgery. It hurts a bit, but is also a relief. I have WASHED MY HAIR for the first time and I feel civilised.
The switch on day is set to March 19th. I can’t wait. It will be a two-day visit to the centre. W. is scheduled for the same day so I will meet her. K. has a different device and he will have a switch-on a week earlier.
I am wearing one hearing aid all this time, on my right ear. It is a bit upsetting. Talking to my family or people I know well is no problem. In noisy places or in social situations the communication is a little more difficult though. I was told not to try the hearing aid on my left ear yet since it is still healing.
