Anne's Story

Posted in Cochlear Implant stories

In 2013 I had an operation that changed my life in so many ways – I received a Cochlear Implant in my left ear.


I have a hereditary hearing loss.  I have some hearing in my right ear and am borderline profoundly deaf in my left ear. My father and grandmother were hearing impaired; my sister, nephew and uncle each wear hearing aids.
