Seriously, is there a tea kettle in my ear now? That's all I seem to hear lately out of the right ear, a tea kettle whistling. It's just tinnitus, but it's quite annoying! 24/7, it's random ringing or whistling.
Recovery still going ok. Mostly just taking ibuprofen for pain, and have use an ice pack a few times to try to help with the pain too. Still camping out on my recliner at home.
Did my first post-op sneezes a couple nights ago, and that was no fun. 3 sneezes at first, followed by 2 more. Auugghh! Allergies are horrible, seriously. Still haven't blown my nose yet though, so that's good. I remember when I first tried blowing my nose after the first CI surgery, and feeling a pop sensation. Yeah, don't want to experience that again.
Got the iPod with me at work, in hopes that the music will keep my mind occupied and I won't focus so much on the tinnitus whistling sounds. Right now it's a combination of music from the iPod and ringing/whistling. Weird. One more week, and the new CI will be activated and I will have the Naida CI processors! And the stitches will be gone!
