    I was implanted with the Cochlear Freedom back in 2005; I wear a hearing aid in the other ear. The Freedom was doing pretty well for at first, but for the last severa years it has been cutting in and out. Many times it does not turn on for almost an hour after I turn it on int he morning. Has anyone else experienced this prolem? I have been to my audiologist many times about this, but te problem still exists. I’m desperate!
