This is the personal implant journey of Christopher Rawlins of Broken Hill. Here is part of the Introduction to his story.

"I started writing this account of My Implant Journey to document what I went through in the process of being Implanted with the Cochlear device and fitted with the Cochlear speech processor.

As I progressed I found that there is not any real instruction manual given before starting out so decided to try to add more information.

My hope is that my story may help others understand the process, what to expect and how they may be affected."
