Epilepsy has made me totaly deaf and e.N.T won't give me hearing aids as they won't work as it's to do with the brain would a cochlear implant work?

In brief: Depends

It really depends on the level of hearing loss and the specifics of your audiogram. If you are profoundly deaf, you may be a candidate for a cochlear implant.
Some people who can't benefit from cochlear implants, can get a brainstem implant. You need to see a neurotolologist, a sub-specialist of the ENT field.
