"I couldn't hear the children in the classroom, or answer their questions"
Russell first recognised his hearing loss when he used the telephone one day at work. Being able to hear was essential for the work Russell did. His job involved a lot of communicating with teachers, educators and educational administrators both in person and over the phone. As a result, Russell got hearing aids to improve his hearing.
Hearing aids helped Russell for many years, but he needed something more as his hearing gradually worsened. Russell was working at a university, supervising doctoral students and giving lectures. Russell’s hearing aids were not giving him the clarity he needed to perform his duties; he needed something else to improve his hearing and quality of life.
For Russell, a cochlear implant was the answer.
Russell was not concerned about his operation but more excited about the cochlear implant’s improvement in his life.
Russell says his cochlear implant has not only given him back his hearing but a good part of his life. Because of his cochlear implant, he could continue his academic work at university, attend academic conferences, and get his social life back.
If it weren’t for my cochlear implant, I wouldn’t be able to hear and converse with my wife, children, grandchildren, and others socially.
