Welcome To My Blog...

This blog follows my journey of 2 different cochlear implants and my condition: Multiple mitochondrial DNA deletions I have started this blog 15 yrs too late but ill try my best to fit it all in! I have packed a lot of medical jargon into my life since I was 8.

There has been happiness and tears but I've come through it all with my family and my friends.I'm profoundly deaf as a result of a condition called Multiple mitochondrial DNA deletions or mitochondrial disease RRM2B as my professor Sir Dough Turnbull calls it! I have had since birth but I didn't find out this til I was 19. I have had 2 cochlear implants (at the age of 8 and then i lost the 1st cochlear implant in my right ear after 7 years due to a bad, accruing ear infection (which I couldnt fight off because of my mitochondrial condition) at the age of 15 and had a 2nd one implanted in my left ear that same year which I have now.

Cyst op...

Today I went to the local hopsital with mum to get my cyst removed from my eyelid. We got up at 7 even though the appointment wasnt til 10. i had a cup of tea when the ambulance came at 8 to take us there. I just  about finished my wheatbix!n We got there and we waited for about an hour before we got in. 
She put in a local in my eye lid which i got used to after the brow suspensions so it wasnt too bad! she removed the cyst and gave me 4 dissolveable stitches. Im to keep it clean and dry for 2 days.  My eye is blackening up a bit more now. Needsless to say my poor mum felt faint and had to be given an ice pack because she hates needles. This is why dad came with me for the brow suspensions!! But its all fine and another op done with. Just gotta chill out!
