long will it be before my hearing returns?
takes time! Over time with uncorrected hearing, the brain
loses some of the synapses (or connections) it needs to properly
interpret the speech signal it is getting. If you learned
a foreign language a few years ago but didn't keep up with it,
you will have to relearn the vocabulary to understand it again.
The same is true with your brain; it has to relearn the
"new sounds" it is hearing with hearing aids. This
can take up to six months. The more you
wear your hearing aids, the better your brain will become at
interpreting the signals.
the proper expectations is important. Not even the best
hearing aids can compensate for dead inner ear hair cells or
completely get rid of background noise. You may never
hear as well as you once did, but the benefits that hearing
aids can bring will definitely improve the quality of your life.
summary, hearing aids can do a great job in filling in the gaps
that your inner ear is missing, but they will need help from
the rest of your auditory system to get the light bulb in your
brain to flash on. This only comes from consistently wearing
your hearing aids.
