I am tired of hearing half of everything. How far gone does your hearing need to be before you are a candidate for the implant? I have no hearing in one ear and wear an aide in the other and can hear little without it and not real good with it. I do alot of lip reading. I lost my hearing 5 years ago after I had my daughter. The specialist told me I was a candidate but its too early. How early is too early? Thanks for all the help you guys give to me!!
