HearLIFE Expo – what to expect during CI surgery

Surgery takes around two hours, and is done under general anesthesia. It’s generally done as an outpatient procedure.

You leave the hospital wearing a pressure bandage, then recovery time is 3-6 weeks.

Activation day, first each electrode is activated one at a time, then your tolerances are established – making sounds not too soft and not too loud (can be painful). Several visits are needed to widen tolerances over time.
