Sam: Experience with the Cochlear Implant

Sam’s hearing progressively deteriorated in his teenage years, and he started wearing hearing aids. After some years, however, he did not derive enough benefit from them and stopped using them altogether for five years. 

After five years of relying on lip-reading, Sam realized that his hearing was too poor for his professional life. After extensive research, he decided to get a cochlear implant.
