It is 4 weeks with the processor on.
I begin to hear some environmental sounds. Not the loudest ones. Rustling is pretty loud. But I still don’t hear the majority of speech sounds. I am aware of speech, though.
Some time ago, at work, I took off my hearing aid because of some irritation of the earlobe. I heard/felt when the girl who is sitting behind me was doing something, moving her chair, reaching to her backsack. I wouldn’t have paid attention to these sounds if I had my hearing aid on.
Just a moment ago, I have heard the buzz of my entry phone, reinforced by the feeling from the left side.
Apart from rustling, things I hear best are various “metallic” sounds — spoons, coins, keys.
Wednesdaythe 18th: new programming.
I have changed the batteries on Friday the 13th, that is, they lasted almost a week. Perhaps it is because of the holidays. the environment was less loud.
