A second cochlear?!!

My audi has asked me if I would consider a second implant. I currently have one on the left side but now the experts think I should think about having the right side implanted. I have been profoundly deaf in my right ear since I was about three years old, or for as long as I can remember anyway so this is a big issue. It was a no-brainer getting the implant in the left ear that suddenly went deaf 18 months ago but getting a second ear done is an entirely different thing. I don't know why exactly, maybe because my brain doesn't acknowledge that the right ear even exists!
I don't know what I will do.
