Hearing Aids are assistive devices that make sounds easier to hear. Therefore, hearing aids do not restore hearing to normal. When hearing aids are removed, the hearing loss persists.
New hearing aid users often have confusion regarding the expected outcomes of hearing aid use. Hearing loss is often slow to progress and not all patients seek assistance when symptoms initially occur, or even are aware that a problem exists until it is significant enough to affect speech in their daily lives. Due to the long periods of time when sounds were not heard at proper volume levels, newly amplified sounds may seem too loud or at the wrong pitch. Background noise may seem louder than anticipated and the brain may have difficulty focusing. It takes time to adapt and while everyone is given a trial period, it is important to realize that often the ear and brain have not fully adjusted to hearing again within this time period. Some individuals take weeks and months to adapt to hearing again from the many years it took to develop the hearing loss.
Success will occur, but patience and trust are required.
