On January 5th, 2011 my friend, 19 year old Connor got his cochlear implant activated in his right ear. Connor has bilateral Enlarged Vestibular Aqueduct Syndrome (ELVAS). He has had hearing aids most of his life and due to his condition had very rapid hearing loss towards the beginning of his freshman year in college. He has severe to profound hearing loss in both ears. He was implanted with a Cochlear Nucleus 5. His surgery was just 8 days after his birthday on December 20, 2010.
This is a video of his activation and his ability to hear for the first time.
Connor has been keeping a blog about his experiences with a Cochlear Implant check it out here:
