I’m afraid not, Joe! I agree, it’s very attractive and positive.

I had my CI Op last Thursday in Cambridge my fitting date is the 8th January switch on date unknown. So i am going through the deaf period which is giving me time to think. My big thought is that i would like CI users lapel badge, what do think am i bonkers?

Congratulations! Have you met the Home Counties CI Group in London yet for a celebratory drink? You can find them at http://hccig.org.uk/events/

You could wear a badge if you want to. Although your CI will do the advertising (unless you cover it with long hair/hat) and people tend to think it is one of these new-fangled bluetooth phones that sit on your ear.

You’ll be hearing so well with it that you most probably won’t need a badge after a few months! 🙂

Bald thanks to a Brain Tumour surgery and Radiotherapy.

Also left disabled so hip hop dancing and Tequila Slammers are a no no for a while

No need for a badge then – you get to show the CI off instead! And I guess the party will have to come to you 🙂
