Yes, I have.
I should have done the surgery much sooner.
It took about 30 minutes, and I have no complaints yet.
It was a little weird hearing someone drill a hole into your head, but other than that, the surgery was a complete success.
I get the stitches out next week.
I follow-up with the doctor once a month for the next two months.
Then in three months, I should get the processor to give me perfect hearing in my left ear.
In this day and age of instant gratification, it's going to be hard to wait but I think it will be totally worth it.
