Technically yes, a complete return to your previous abilities should be impossible due to changed biomechanics. However at least two patients have claimed to recover completely, this means they appear to have suffered no long term loss in athletic ability -at least so far.

Both patients lengthened their femur bones 7CM with Dr. Guichet in Italy.

you guys are understimating LL, even if you do 5cm i dont think you will get your 100% back. you will expect to have a good recovery but maybe not that

expect maybe 90% recovery... but  expect that to take up to 2 years

just being realistic with you

Hmm i just readed this on redit...

http://www.reddit.com/r/short/comments/15bxay/

He claim to be 100/110% better after his LL surgery but then he only did "4,5cm" so i don't know?

What is it i will loss? i have never been a fast runner, i can run 4-5km in 20min or when i was fitt my best time was 50min in 10km! will i still be able to do it?! and will i still be able to do BJJ! according to this guy it seems realistic... then im all in for doing 5cm!

he can claim that... thats fine


i suggest you to read the diaries on here and the other site

i would say that 99% of the patients say it takes 1.5 to 2 years to get very normal... but still not 100%

you shouldn't expect to be  that 1 in a 1000 case

breaking a leg isn't the issue

i need to get my left leg rebroken to fix alignment... i will heal quickly


the issues start happening when you stretch the soft tissue.. breaking a leg is not the same as lengthening a leg

Exactly.
You will never be like before.

yes... i think that... not as before

but  after 1.5 to 2 years, should be normal,feel fine...  walk fine, maybe run fine...but not the same abilities as before

You can probably get to 110% because your legs get longer so therefore stronger than before after you have recovered.

Post by: crimsontide on April 14, 2015, 08:21:31 PM
yyyyyyyyyeah... i dont think so


why a longer leg is a stronger leg... no idea

in fact its the exact opposite for  soft tissue.. lengthening weakens them

i dont  know why people   delude themselves..... accept the positives about lengthening.... you get taller

thats about it actually, but its a big big plus

Post by: Tyler_Durden on April 14, 2015, 11:24:34 PM
longer legs > bigger steps > which results for faster running.

But still it doesn't mean you will be faster of course it all depends on your recovering period.
anyway if you are not athlete you are not going to use your 100% anyway

My orthopaedic told me exactly what crimsontide is saying all the time.
Deepak Chopra, you are just being extremly unrealistic. Your soft tissue gets stretched out in an unnatural way and therfore gets weakened.
The next thing that will make 100% recovery very hard, is the fact that your biomechanics are changed by the lengthening.
Longer legs only result in better sportive performances if they are naturally long and not lengthened like it's the case for us.

Who cares anyways. It's not like you've ever been to your 100% in the first place, lol. Or even 50%. Seriously, reading all that noise about full recovery, you'd imagine everyone here is a professional athlete, a fking champion, preparing to take the world trophy or something. Get real.
Title: Re: Is it impossibole to get 100% Pre you when you have done a LL?!
Post by: crimsontide on April 15, 2015, 12:36:01 AM
no one here has been 50%???

really???

i think u need to look at  diaries.....  rgkey cant run... been almost 2 years

took sweden over 2 years to get to 80%

guy i know took 15 months to walk sort of normal

 other diaries pretty much say the same... im not even  mentioning the disasters.. but  the average experience

to say it doesnt matter or only impacts athletes is a bit bizarre

rgkey still says he feels a bid odd...  not talking about marathons here... but walking

after lengthening u can live a normal life again eventually... but  people need to realize how long and hard this is...

after you lengthen, then consolidate.. you're still not nearly recovered, its  just the beginning... this is the reality... its worth it but pople need to hear how hard this is...

Truth is it depends on your personal willigness to recover and do PT.

I think this is key as most people are just naturally lazy, let's face it. But I do wonder...because Paley says you can possible get back to normal daily life in 6 months and sports in 12 but I am not seeing anything like that at all possible based on diaries.

It's a shame we don't have more long-term diaries to pull from but I get it...most people move on after their surgery.

The people having issues either went to bad doctors or over lengthening and are lazy and not trying that hard

i meant more like football or rugby - where u need to twist and move off quickly - boxing mma would be similar too in that your natural alignment re footwork is off - in a brawl after a year u can just run off if u hit first first!!  :) hope he don't break uf legs again or back to russia it is man!!  :)😃

You can only know this if you are the Cristiano CRonnie7 or the Usain Bolt in the sport you compete in. Sweden is a perfect example. He was the best at what he competed in so technically it is only people like him that can answer that. For me I did competitive swimming at nationals level so when I do recover as much as I can, maybe I will be able to make a comparison but logically looking at this situation I highly doubt it because we are stretching ourselves to the point that naturally it was never intended. Pushing the body beyong its comfortable limit.

It's absolutely possible. this surgery is a scientific process. Of course it has risks but all surgeries have risks. You just need to do physical theraphy (physiotherapy) after the surgery and have nutritional diet. Pre-surgery exercises will help you recover faster too.

What is the point of getting back to "100 percent" unless you are a competitive athlete. If you are not in world-class shape before the op, either A) It won't matter, because you have no competition to judge the minuscule difference between 95-100 percent B) You can always get in better shape if you weren't busting your ass to be at the top of your game pre-op. In that case, you will better 110 percent because you have chosen to train way more than before.

Before I did my op I was obsessed with this stupid notion of 100 percent. Within 6 months post-op, I was getting drunk at frat parties, reconnecting with friends, meeting girls, and enjoying my fking life.

Thats depend on your gastrosoleus muscle. If you have no deserve in it then you have to lenthen them and then you will never recover as before (some doctors won't lenthen this muscle). But if you didn't need it then you will recover but your body will change and you have to adapt with it.
