Broken Parts

It looks like the surgery did added one aftereffect: inflammation in the ear. It hurts from time to time. Cochlear implant: -1, Hearing aids: 1.
The processor died. I haven’t been using it because I wear the BTE (behind-the-ear), but when my music cable stopped working, I got the processor out to test which cable wasn’t working (there are two parts for the BTE and the processor uses just one part). I tried switching batteries, switching battery comparments, and nothing worked.
Should I be surprised considering many of the accessibility equipment I’ve used over the years stopped working within a short time frame?
It’s been the week from tech heck. I ran into problems with my computer as well as my new laptop, but those are fixed.
