Mapping - otherwise known as a cochlear tune-up

This week I had my 12 month mapping. That means that I spent a few hours with my audi doing a number of hearing tests and getting a final tune-up. This was important as I was able to see what I was hearing without the cochlear (see audiogram in post below), and the progress I'd made from when I first had the cochlear turned on to now, 12 months later. Take a look.

First mapping, shows a limited range of sound

12 month mapping shows a wider range of sounds, the further apart the red and green, the better!

Now I only go back to my audi every 12 months to get a tune-up and that's about it. It's now just me and my cochlear to face the world alone. I think we'll do OK :)
