Jo Deacon – My Cochlear Implant Story

19th October 2013 will mark the third anniversary of my cochlear implant.  Even now I’m still hearing new sounds and understanding and speech recognition is improving every day.  I still can’t believe how lucky I am and if there’s one thing I regret is was that I didn’t have it done sooner! I guess having the cochlear implant isn’t for everyone and is a personal choice but I have to say I’ve been a huge advocate for it and tell everyone I know that I have one and the huge benefits I’ve had.
