Thanks for the reply! Ya, my anxiety on the matter has passed. There is a definite improvement in the volume, but still at a strange pitch. I've been living with tinnitus for a long time, so strange sound is nothing new. I can't wait to be where you are, though.
I have stopped reading the boards altogether. It seems people have a lot of similar issues, but few to none follow up on them. I'm sure they're out there, but it's not the healthiest thing, for me, to be sifting through all the posts. I will update this thread, however, as my progress continues.
