In 2013, after careful consideration, she decided getting a cochlear implant was the best decision. And although not the case for all people, Lindy immediately noticed a difference.
"Three days after my cochlear implant was switched on, I was performing in a hand bells concert. A few weeks later I was accompanying our choirs on the piano and holding conversations in all kinds of listening situations," she said.
In 2018, she became a bilateral cochlear implant recipient (cochlear implant in both ears), and years later, hasn’t looked back.
"I wish I had taken the big [cochlear] implant leap even sooner," she said.
