I'm troubled with hearing problems. My left ear is totally damaged after the accident. I was hit by a drunk lady during the night party. I was totally collapsed and my bf took me to the hospital. After the examination, the doctor told my bf that my left ear is completely gone. I will not be able to hear any more. I was shocked. I was feeling like dying. My bf tried to console me and told me about hearing aids. And he took an appointment in a clinic for getting hearing aid services in Toronto. Can I wear hearing aids when I take shower or when I swim? Will it last for years? Share your views.
