I bought an Oticon hearing aid when I was 16.
The brand has now gone on to become one of the most popular brands in the world.
Now, I’ve got a problem.
The hearing aids I bought used to fit around my ears and the problem was that they were just too big for my ears.
Now they’re much more snug, but it does feel like a big lump when I’m wearing them.
It’s caused my hearing to deteriorate.
And when I first started wearing them I was told they could be fixed by changing the material in the ear cups.
I was also told they were very sensitive.
I was put on a treatment plan that would include a hearing aid replacement.
The plan included having the device inserted into my ear canal and a patch applied.
But I didn’t realise that a hearing test would also be done to make sure it was correct.
So I called the Oticon support team.
I spoke to a team member who had previously had a hearing problem.
He said: “I’ll try it out”.
The test was to see if the patch worked, and I was tested again.
They found that the patch wasn’t causing any problems.
However, I couldn’t go back on my treatment plan because it was due to expire in three weeks.
So, I called my GP and asked if I could be fitted with a hearing aids replacement.
I’m glad I did.
The next time I go to the doctor I’ll be wearing the new ones.
I’ll get tested twice more and see how it goes.
The hearing aid is going to have to be removed and replaced again, and then I’ll have to have an ear exam.
I’ve already gone through two tests.
They were different.
One of them was to look for signs of infection in my ears, and the other was to check for any signs of hearing loss.
I’m not really surprised.
I’d never had any hearing problems before and it was all about hearing.
When I was a teenager, I was always afraid to wear hearing aids.
But now I’m older and I’ve lost some hearing, I’m starting to feel comfortable with it.
I can’t imagine how much more hearing aids my life will be.
I can’t get a job without one of these.
My GP is a really nice guy and I’m really happy with the support they’re giving me.
I hope I’ll get my hearing aids removed in time for Christmas.
