Dear Shane

It is hard for me to give you specific advice about this without having the results of a hearing evaluation and your full medical history. The best thing to do is to have your hearing evaluated by an audiologist so that we can find out exactly where and how severe the damage is to the hearing system. The audiologist will be able to discuss your results and possible treatment with you and he/she will refer you for any further evaluation needed. Please let me know if you require any referrals to an audiologist in your area. You can contact me at

Please write again if you have any further questions after your consultation or if you need a referral.

Kind regards
