I have had hearing aids since 2012. With 30% loss both ears. I had surgery on my right knee , knee replacement and got infection. So they took out appliance and I was on antibiotics for 21/2 months. Was in a nursing. And in about 4 months my hearing loss went to 94%. Reg hearing aid won't help the right ear. Would blue tooth hearing aid help????

Hello Anon

Thank you for writing.

Wireless hearing aids may work for your hearing loss but it can depend on the severity (and your hearing loss is quite severe). They are great in the fact that you can be connected through all your devices (including being able to watch a movie, listen to your radio and and use your phone) and be able to communicate far more easily.
You will need to schedule an appointment for this kind of hearing aid to see what works for you.
