CROS hearing aid brings Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star to tears.

Kathryn Edwards“I had no idea I was missing so much.”

Read Kathryn Edwards story – although completely deaf in one ear for the past 18 years now she has the CROS hearing aid which picks up sounds from deaf side and sends them to her hearing ear. No longer is she in the dark when someone is talking to her sitting next on her deaf side.

Kathryn stars on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.  See her story here:-

“First and foremost, my ear doctor’s appointment for my hearing aid. I want to clarify with everyone who might have questions about this device…I am still completely deaf in my right ear. The device is called The Phonak CROS. It picks up sound on my deaf side and transmits the sound to the ear I can hear with. So now, when someone sits on the right side (my deaf ear) and talks, I can hear them.
Also, it magnifies the sound of everything, making it as close to what a person with normal hearing would hear.
As you saw in the episode, it brought me to tears. I had no idea I was missing so much. I have been deaf in one ear for 18 years now, and I have missed a lot of conversations because I simply couldn’t hear. I was so surprised by all the little things I was missing.
I had no idea that I was talking loudly. Losing the sound in one ear is a monumental change…so many things adjust when getting used to being deaf and adjusting the volume of my voice was a change I couldn’t gage until I got the Phonak.
By no means does this mimic what it’s like to hear in stereo, with two ears, but it is still a game changer for me. I feel so blessed that this was an option and I was able to get the Phonak aid.
My biggest hurdle now is remembering to wear it every day. There are days that I want to hear without assistance on my good ear, so I choose not to wear it, but I think I will change that habit, because I want to get used to them completely.
I am so happy to share this with everyone, so hopefully this can help someone else.”
