Yay!! Let’s bring more awareness to the hearing people about the cons of having CI.. Not all deaf people really want CI.. Must respect their choices what they want for their life.. That’s what I hate to see a child didn’t have a choice to decide cuz their parents decide it for them. Not him.. Unfortunally it is not the first one I hear.. I see about it bit more than I would have liked to see..

Please keep up vlog!!

Amazing. Thanks Matt, for sharing your story. I had no idea that they needed to cut that much into the skull – that’s as risky as brain surgery.
I would like to know if Matt’s hearing aids helped at all.
And thanks for captioning Jack – people need to know about this before they experience the difficult decisions in raising a deaf child.
As I see it now, it would seem best to try to have a child learn speech, with the help of non-surgical hearing technology, without it having to be a main focus of their education or communication, and no substitute for acquiring ASL, a more natural acquisition for a deaf child.

Geo is always our super vlogs. Hope the Lesgisture Law will need to research about CI, seriously!

Please thank Geo for me, I understand your vlog better with Geo’s captioning help! Thanks for presenting another side to CI’s. Wish Mathew’s parents had listened to their son and valued what he believed over what the doctors, audiologists, etc. told them. Age fourteen or teen age is old enough to know what communication mode the son preferred and the parents should have paid attention. CI’s don’t always work for an older child!

Very good vlog. Thank you for putting subtitles. I didn’t have time to go any further than Matthew Fowler. I’m sorry he was put through the cochlear implant operation. His parents should have listened and the doctors should have as well.
A Cochlear Implant will never work on someone that really does not want one, and rarely works on an older child.
In New Zealand he would never have been considered as a candidate. We have very tough guidelines here, and generally a Cochlear Implant are for those who have had hearing, and lost it.
My heart goes out to Matthew.
I am having a 2nd cochlear implant in a few weeks. I had my first one 15 years ago and like Matthew had that big scar. However, it isn’t major surgery, but jsut another type of ear operation. These days the incision/scar is much much smaller as techniques have got better.
Because I have been hearing most of my life, I am looking forward to hearing again. However, if it doesn’t work, I will be totally deaf for the rest of my life. But I would rather try and fail, than not try at all. Better to know for sure, than to keep wondering.

CI/deaf people have right to remove CI but CI insurance won’t cover to remove CI from brain. CI laws should change the insurance will cover CI patients have right to remove. Aren’t they??? I don’t want to see CI/deaf people are suffered..That’s enough..
Keep fighting to CI insurance to change new laws that CI/deaf people have right to remove without cost. Keep fight.
