For those that asked, I'm waiting on a date. My first appointment ever with good ole Doc was August 28th, 2002. The appointment when the pretesting was done (head CT, blood workup, etc) where I decided to Go Ahead with it was in Early September. I'm STILL waiting for them to schedule me. They are saying "any day now" for the next Meeting where they decide such things.
So I'm at 4+ months and counting. From what I read, 6+ is completely normal. :(
I've been given 2 choices, Nucleus and Clarion, and I'm leaning towards the latter, the CII BTE.
