I noticed pretty much immediately this time (3.9yrs). It was when I called his name as he ran away from me and he stopped and turned round. He also complained that noises were too loud and the volume on the computer is noticably lower. How old is your ds? I didn't notice much difference immediately when ds was 20 months and had them. It was only when he had his 6 week check up and they asked about his speaking and I realised his number of words had more than doubled in that time. After the grommets came out the first time, he started patting my cheek to make me look at him when we were talking, which he hadn't done since he'd had the grommets in. It was pointed to me that he was lip reading when he did this.
he usually cant hear the phone ringing or a knock on the door ,areoplanes or helicopters ,clock ticking ,i was under the impression it would work immediatly ,he did say when he was coming round that the ward was noisy and then since then is still mis hearing words i say ,you still have to call him loudly and he still has the t.v loud
D had some put in 18 months ago. They are out now obviously. We noticed a slight difference in her, but nothing dramatic. She did talk less loudly which was a blessing. It was like having Brian Blessed in the house at times. She had a hearing test a week after having them put in and that showed a dramatic increase in her hearing. She was eight when she had them done.
When's his check up? will they repeat the hearing test then?
DD had hers 4 months ago, and in the car in the way home was complaining about it being too noisy - the noise being her screaming and she spent a few days screaming with her hands over her ears before coming accustomed to the noise. I was hoping she'd just give up screaming
