Title: Adward- EXTERNAL TIBIA - Dr. Pradip Sharma INDIA
Post by: Adward on July 20, 2018, 10:55:08 AM
Introduction: Am from Malaysian of Indian origin, trying to increase my height by 7 to 7.5 cms. I have already done 3 cms as of today. Please keep your advice flowing as it would be of great help.


The day before Surgery:

So I knew I had to get admitted to the hospital today for my surgery which is set for tomorrow so that all my procedural tests and pre-ops can be done.  Visited temple for blessing and started my journey for the Hospital via Mr.  Harry's clinic.
Had my mum and pa with me, still was a bit scared of everything now that I was on the other side of the knife.  Being a doctor myself could understand the procedure and everything but still, you do need luck.  As you all know like any other surgery CLL too can come with its own surgical complications. 
You know every human being has a different pharmacokinetics and thus we all react to the treatment somewhat differently. 

So what I had planned for myself was LON considering all the pros and cons of all other procedures.
Got admitted to the hospital around 7 pm.  Had my tests done and after having my dinner slept off.

Day of Surgery:

I was taken for surgical pre-op around 9:30 am and to OT around 11:00 am.  Surgery went normal and everything was fine by God's grace. 
An important piece of knowledge: I chose general anesthesia against doctor's advice and didn't use epidural.  So my first night after surgery was very painful even after use of most potent opioids.
I was really IIIIIn pain, but what kept me from crying out loud was a very caring staff in I. C. U and their constant consoling.  It really helped me overcome my pain.  The most important plank in all this were my parents.

Next day my pain had come down to almost half and was much more bearable.  Thus I was shifted to my private room for my post-op care.  One thing again that I should mention here is that the staff of the hospital was so good to me and my mum, that it made my stay seem more like holidays rather than for CLL.

One thing that I found was that having your mother by your side during the initial phase of the surgery has really helped me.  It has really increased my pain threshold to anything like 75% of my normal pain threshold.
Key point is that if you want to avoid using unnecessary painkillers than having someone who really cares for you really hurts a lot.
Whenever I had pain my mother would rub my feet for hours and hours and that really helped in relieving my pain.   So here I want to find the opportunity to thank my super mom really for this and everything.  She is my favorite superhero, so all my pain would be gone just like that.  Love you mum.  I know a child can never repay for all our parents do for us, but still would try my best.  Thanks mom and dad.   :) :-*

All this while keeping in mind that pain is a subjective feeling and thus changes from person to person.  It is also a textbook definition.  For example, I might rate a painful stimulus differently than you all or anybody else.  I didn't use any patch after the fourth day of my surgery though I was using iv pcm TDS and Dynapar BD.   
I used Fentanyl pump only for my ICU time.  After being discharged from hospital I used signoflam BD which is quite a general analgesic combination.  Here I want to mention that some previous LLers post their surgeries have used fentanyl patches for a prolonged period of time, which I don't believe is a good strategy but because they don't belong to the Medical fraternity they make such bad choices.  But doctors having a limited choice in their patient's pain management therapy especially in case of CLL and patients being too stubborn to let their doctor take lead here does make for such lousy decisions.  Remember these drugs really take a heavy toll on your liver and kidney which are hugely involved in drug metabolism.  So corporatization can be blamed for this which favors good reviews, even at the cost of patient well-being.   Doctors are led into making such decisions because one bad review which might not be medically true or relevant can destroy your economic prospects.  Thus patients should be more trusting and doctors should be more concerned.

DAY 3: Today I again met Dr.  Pradeep Sharma and thanked him for his good work.  Also, thanked him for keeping my well-being before any fear of any bad review.  Also met Harry who has helped us a lot during the last 3 days.  He truly is a blessed soul.  It's not mere a financial transaction that plays out here, rather more than that it is the true concern and sincere effort that matters for patients and on that, I would give Harry a 10 on 10.
Now comes evening and with evening comes bladder problem >:( :( :o :'(: I had my catheter removed this afternoon but my urine would not just come out.  So they had to insert a thin feeding tube which allowed my urine to pass through.  Had almost 1000 ml of fluid taken out which is huge.

Yes I agree, the mans had a diary for the last 4 days and not even 1 comment. Even though most of us arnt thinking about going to this doctor we should still support a fellow LL'er, hell at least acknowledge him.

Anyways congrats on starting your journey Adward  ;D ;D ;D!

I havnt done much research on Dr. Sharma, what made you choose him vs the other indian LL doctors?

Now comes evening and with evening comes bladder problem >:( :( :o :'(: I had my catheter removed this afternoon but my urine would not just come out.  So they had to insert a thin feeding tube which allowed my urine to pass through.  Had almost 1000 ml of fluid taken out which is huge.

For all of those people who keep asking if or why a foley catheter is necessary, this is why.

Day 4: It came with an even bigger bladder problem along with no stool passage.  My bladder was full and full as in 1450ml ml full/ I was afraid it might burst.  I had to go for feeding tube once again.  In the evening I had to ask for an enema to be performed.  Now since it was a Sunday and doctor Sharma had already told me a day before that he might not be available for Sunday morning and if needed I can contact him or duty doctor if any problem occurred.  I now talked to the duty doctor and asked him to consult with doctor Sharma regarding my stool and bladder problem.  Now my duty doctor after consulting about my problem with doctor Sharma came to the conclusion that a feeding tube should be used to empty my bladder for now and later a urinary catheter should be placed until next morning by when my case shall be discussed with specialists of the concerned departments and a final solution should be found out.  Now on my request, my duty doctor permitted me for an experiment which came as an idea during our mutual medical discussion regarding my problem which was that it might just be a simple postural problem.  And guess what it was? Yes, you are right I passed my first stool and much more importantly I urinated all by myself without any tube and believe me the feeling was of an extreme pleasure.    :) :) One thing good that came well out of all this was that it kept me from thinking about my surgical pain.  8)

Actually, I have some relatives in India who did research for me. He has been the lead surgeon on many of Dr. Singari's patients. Plus Harry was a very important factor. I talked to many doctors in India and outside but he understood the process of recovery well. Because after surgery recovery is what matters the most. Not many Physiotherapists understands the needs of an LL patient. Since I am from medical fraternity and understand the insiders deal well thus I came up with this decision.

I have already extended more than 3 cms now, so pain isn't much of an issue now.  :D :D
I mentioned about this at the beginning of my diary. Thanks for all the support :)

I have a package inclusive of everything, so don't have that information. If you mean food from outside than I believe it depends on your food habits. But as a rough estimation, you can take something between USD 18 to 60 for 1 person from an okay restaurant.

Flashback Point: My surgery took more than what it was intended and had my mother crying and shouting in the hospital lobby over staff for my update. Technical glitches extended my surgery by sometime. But my mother was all furious and her tigress had just come out in open sensing her cub was in trouble. I am sure that not just me but the whole hospital must have had the most difficult time of their work life. :o ;)

On the 5th day, I was shifted to the guest house where I made some changes as to my wish. Had a freshly bought linen put on the bed and new pillow covers as well. I never trust hotels or guest houses with the linen. Yes, you can say that being a doctor you do develop certain freakish habits like not being able to trust anyone but you when it comes to cleanliness etc. But don't even dare to use terms like OCD here...hahaha because that is like a whole different level.
Now I was having an urge to urinate and like always everyone was telling me that I would be able to pass urine in a urine jug or something even though I was pushing against it and guess what happened? Yeah, my "Pee-Pee" Cheesy Cheesy stood tall with its proud owner and everyone had to bend to my way which was to allow me to use the lavatory and allow nature to do its own job and boy what a pleasurable feeling we get while we all humans, as well as animals, get when we do it.

6th day: Had my first physio session today with Harry. After surgery physio session today was like visiting a spa. Though much to my distaste for writing I have still decided on writing this diary for sake of you all. As my views and decisions as a doctor LLer are going to be so much different from previous LLers. It would really provide you all with some very important insights of the CLL journey. It would definitely help so many of future LLers in making much more informed decisions. Being a doctor has helped me a great deal in making better medical choices for myself. Also, I must thank here Harry and Dr. Sharma for their patient first policy. I really get angry when I get lied to. This is something which hasn't occur in our transaction so far and thus has helped us in building a healthy doctor-patient relationship.

Day 7: Had a fun-filled day with two physio sessions until the night brought all its wrath upon me. Had a very bad shin pain in my right leg. Had to call Harry mid-night. Thankfully he picked up and came by to help me. He tied my foot to the frame at 90 degrees and that helped a lot but still had to use pcm. Wasn't able to sleep much at night but the pain was fine by morning. Such episodes of pain and happiness are common in LL journey.
One important piece of advice is that while you decide on your surgeon, please ask your surgeon to set a meeting between you two prior to the surgery.  Talking to your physio is very much essential especially during the lengthening phase. If they haven't handled many CLL cases then, believe me, you are going to be at the losing end. Surgeon's 90% job is done by the first day and then it is your physio who is going to be your all-out angel for next 3 to 6 months. Insider info: Surgeons doesn't know much about Myology as it's not their job to know so, thus it is the job of a physio to know-all about Myology and thus they are the specialists of this field.  So having an experienced physio by your side should be the second highest priority on your bucket list. The second thing is don't be conned by terms like trauma physio or professional physio. Simply put a big cross on such physios. The reason is that your pain doesn't know mornings or nights so it isn't gonna seek your advice before coming and thus if they are too professional of a heck then be prepared to howl and wait for whole nights or evenings before you can establish contact with them. You just need is a responsible and CLL experienced physio. I mean you don't go to a cardiothoracic surgeon for a neuro case or do you?....better you decide it for yourself.  Sayonara   8)  :D

Day 8: My bandages were removed today.    8)

Day 9: Harry is an expert in his work. Today my pin sites were cleaned along with my surgical incision sites. I got a new pair of sandals specially custom made for my needs. Don't be jealous, you will get one too if you are brave enough to face this surgery.  ::)  Dr. Sharma visited and green-lighted me to start lengthening from tomorrow.   8)

Thanks a lot for all the wishes and sorry for such a late reply. I actually had relatives in India who did all inquiry regarding Dr. Sharma and his experience for me. They are actually quite powerful people and thus after thorough investigation referred me to Dr. Sharma. Many previous patients who had done LL in India recognize him as Dr. Sharma.

Day 10: I lengthened 1 mm for the first time today. Would be doing 1mm for first 3-5 cm. Every day I will be doing four rotation of 0.25mm each. Pain has not been a problem but just boredom and little discomfort are all I can complain about. Food in the place is tasty. Staff is very humble and more than willing to help. It also depends on one's own attitude though.
Day 11: All of us had a party today, was nice to pull so many people's legs and then playing the patient card each time someone dared to do it to me.....hahaha  8)

It depends on your situation. But on an average rule here is of 1 mm per day until 4cm, 0.75mm per day for 5.5cm and 0.5mm for the rest 2cm. You can calculate the days as per this and also some extra days for rest.

See 80-90% post 7.5 cm lengthening would require approximately 8-9 months and 100% would require another 6 months for consolidation. But you can return back to your daily routine after 9 months with some precautions like not jumping, running etc

See I would suggest that at the end when you make a choice of doing LL you must make an informed decision and not based on just this or any forum. Meet your doctor, your physiotherapist and have a detailed discussion. So many people lie so many times, so you must be sure about your doctor and physio.  Let them also evaluate you and meanwhile you too keep real-time expectations about LL. So many patients do so many silly mistakes which costs them so much. Next thing is get it done, achieve your goal and stay happy.  8)

Mr. Magician post your video for all of us to see this medical wonder. You know that I am a doctor myself and you are talking crap like this with me. You know how many k-wires would be used, how much muscle immobility that would cause, nevertheless to speak nerve entrapment, pin cutting, reduced blood flow because of all this inbuilt swelling and pressure and chances of infection would be through the roof in such circumstances. Liers like you should be shunned off this forum. Better answer me with a video otherwise don't bother to reply.

By the way, it should be a walker, not a stretcher. Google it, you will get your answer.

These days while doing physio I do get a bit of shin pain which is normal because of all the pressure it bears from my physio. Standing for 10 mins or so has become an easy task for me now.
I haven't taken much of analgesics in the last 1.5 month. Hope it goes on like this only.

I do upper body exercise twice every day, along with it I do take up lots of protein to help build my muscles. Time seems to be passing so fast now. Hope to see my complete result soon.  8)

That has to be the most unstable Ilizarovs I ever saw.
If I were you I wouldn't stand much after about 3cm because I think that these pins will bend and you'll risk malunion.

Thanks for the advice and please don't mind but I think you are naive as far as LL (especially LON) is concerned.  I don't see a doctor's degree in hands of many people here who comment totally illogical things here. First of all, what purpose would it serve if I do standing before 3 cm and not after it? You know to stand here is to avoid having ballerina and increase blood flow to the peripheries of my lower extremities.
The second thing is that LL started with Ilizarov's frame and thus if it wasn't a stable technique with guaranteed results it would have been rooted out of medical practice long ago. How come is this frame unstable I don't understand? You know pin loss happens when pins are loose which cause K-wires passing through bones to loosen up and thus causing pin loss. My pins are tightened every 10th day for this reason, as I have already mentioned before.
I went through your medical case and found out that what you did was monorail on tibias which if you ask any doctor is a big no-no for cosmetic limb lengthening. 
Thirdly you said there are chances of malunion, buddy again read carefully and apply logic, it's L-O-N i.e lengthening over a nail which implies there is a nail or in laymen terms a bar or a rod which is composed of hard metal and thus there can not be malunion because the rod won't bend this easily.

If you want I can put up your X-rays here demonstrating what a malunion is because your fibula demonstrates it very well in your X-rays. Please don't talk rubbish unless you have first-hand medical experience. Please don't mind it, but it's my ethical responsibility as a doctor to stop such medical littering which misleads future LLers.

See I don't want to upload your picture to everyone and show what mistakes have been done with your surgery but if you want I can do that. Those who want can visit your diary and see for themselves. I just want to state one fact very clearly here that many of LLers are just naive patients and not doctors thus they make statements which are fully wrong and disastrous. I don't know about your country but doing such a thing in Singapore or Malaysia can bring you a lawsuit.

Please don't take it otherwise buddy.

I agree that monorails are not a good choice. But I was 22 back then and also only a few diaries existed before almost 10 years so my knowledge about LL was minimum.
If I'd do again tibias I'd never use monorails.

But telling to someone that did LL 8 years before you and has studied a lot about LL (except from his own experience) and also plans about a new one, is a sign of stupidity.

Yes, Ilizarov is a great technique but your fixaton has only a few rods, is not an hexapod and it is completely unstable compared to good frames like the ones Catagni uses or the far superior taylor spatial.
Doing external LL without an hexapod is a bad choice. Doing LL on India is a worse even choice.
And finally, the more you lengthen the more the risks if the fixator is unstable. Thats why I told you to not stand a lot after 3 cm.
But your ignorance won't let you understand what I am saying, so do whatever you want. After all, going to an unknown doctor in India to do LL is a great risk on its own so you'll need luck to reach till the end successfully.
But I really wish you'll have it, as I want any LL'er to have successful outcomes.
So, good luck to you.

Firstly dude my frame is stable and it has fewer rods because I chose so. Since I don't see you holding a medical degree here, therefore, I can assure you that my frame which is a PITKAR product is very stable. I chose rods enough to bear my weight, so this was a personal choice which was respected considering I too am a doctor and understand the consequences clearly unlike a layman.
Secondly, your years of experience has wrongly made you believe that hexapod fixator or tailor spatial frame is better for your LL. Let me show you why it's not so.


(https://i.imgur.com/Vptm4kH.png)

(https://i.imgur.com/xUcKwW7.png)

You see those huge pins mean that it's not L-O-N which means less muscle mobility, more muscle wasting, higher chances of infection and time waster too since the frame would be on your Tibias for next 7-9 months.

Now again I can argue so much more on medical uses of hexapod i.e for deformity correction, then factors like cost versus benefit etc but all this is futile. If you want Hexapod you can have it, simply because it's your choice. Similarly, I chose LON because it's my choice and a sane one backed by my medical expertise.

General population should not start acting as doctors because it would destroy the whole medical system. Would you be willing to be a doctor for your family, if not then don't be here for kids who are trying to find medically correct information here and not an incorrect one. Because giving someone wrong information under the disguise of an expert is like a crime to someone who doesn't know much about CLL and would do something drastically wrong to his body just because some senior member on this forum talked about it. Years of your learning about LL still doesn't make you a doctor or an expert.

In my humble opinion, you may share your experience but must not comment on medical aspects here unless you are a medical practitioner.

Hope we still are friends...at least no hard feelings from my side.

TS frames are the best for external only LL as they are the only ones who fix malunions.
If you use LON then maybe you don't need them as chances of malunion are less but I am against a so invasive method while you can use only external tsf which is by far the most safe way to do LL.
Personally I believe that in LL the best is to use one way only which is externals for tibias and internals for femurs. That reduces the risks and makes the surgery as safe as it could get.

But yes, tibia lon has the advantage of less time (although the more risks and the extra surgery needed to remove the nails) so if that was the case for you then yes, tsf for lon are not so crucial.

No hard feelings from mee too.
Keep strong!

Yes, you almost repeated what I said, but again I  wouldn't go into micro-mistakes you have made again in your comment. Let's stop this bickering and focus on some positive energy here. I already do require a lot of positive reinforcement while doing CLL. Would be nice to see you here buddy with all your positive energy.

hey adward, i will be going for external tibias with the ilazarov standard frames just like yours (although the build could differ).

But i wont be using the LON but only the external ilazarov fixators as i cant afford to travel out for surgery with higher costs. also im doing it locally here in pakistan from an orthopedic surgeon who has some experience with cll and this is what he offers.

wat would u advice me most in this circumstances, i know there are different pros and cons to different types of ll procedures and equipments used. i need to know wat i should be most careful about and also consider the most importance during this type of ll.

My pain at the pin site is still the same. Though now that I have completed 5.5 cm and as planned the speed of traction has been reduced to 0.5mm per day, therefore, I am hopeful that the pain issue will also be resolved soon.

The republic day celebrations here in India were great just like our Malaysia and Singapore. This week there is a festival in India, so Harry has organized a party for all of us at his home. I am excited to be finally out for a formal gathering. I will also get to meet his beloved friend(his pet dog). Also, some of his friends are returning from Italy, so would be a really great occasion to meet so many new people. Just wish that I could have had this surgery done at least a month or two before so that I could have attended the party without my frames. Never the less with the frames or without them, I am planning to have a lot of fun.

Hope you people are also doing well. Winter is coming.....sooooon..haha  ;)

Also, I have always wondered, what kind of doctor are you :)!?

As per US system of medical hierarchy: I am training to be a cardiothoracic surgeon but am right now a general surgeon. I wouldn't imagine myself consulting Sarin or any other doctor who wasn't listed in my relatives' list. Again I would repeat that my relatives are quite influential people and they had referred me to Dr. Sharma only after a thorough background check.

They also consulted doctors in the US where they were against the idea of CLL. They just said that it would hurt their reputation to do such a surgery on a healthy patient who isn't a dwarf and citing ethical reasons doctors in the US negated the idea of performing CLL. Then they contacted Dr. Paley's team as well but he just performed IM Nailing, something I was against of for Tibias.

I also did meet Dr. Pili's patients from Italy and I would say though patients from non-medical background wouldn't understand, his patients were some of the most unlucky ones. I would do it in US or India rather than going to Italy for LL. The medical system in Italy is really bad, even worse than Greece. Also, accountability of doctors seems to be a really low factor in Italy. You might find it hard to digest but Russia has a better system in place than Italy.

Hope this answers your question, :)

Sorry, no idea. You may forward your query to Harry himself. His contact info has been shared before. After being on this forum, I have been really amazed at the fact that how adamant and stupid some patients can be. Though from my experience a lot means years in rehabilitation. One might recover but never completely.

See if I have to say just off the top of my head, then one of the advantages would be that no nailing will be done, which means out of all procedures performed for CLL, it is considered as the minimally invasive one.

I don't want to discourage you by saying all the disadvantages, some of them might be hard to digest, but if you want I can still list out. Let me know

See but if you are determined then no disadvantage should discourage you.

First thing first:
1) Let your doctor evaluate the laxity of your muscles, your weight etc.
2) 7cm is doable but still, you and your doctor should have the last word on it.
3) Have a very experienced physio by your side, as you would be facing many situations where you would need the help of a professionally trained physio.

Disadvantages:

1) Restrictive mobility
2) Many more pins to be used to stabilize the frame
3) Higher chances of infection
4) Fixators will stay for a prolonged time
5) Muscle wasting depends on your level of mobility, but muscles will be restricted by pins which would definitely cause muscle immobility by itself.
6) Higher incidence of pins breaking
Many more can be listed but what's important is that if you are determined and prepared then with a good medical team, it's all doable. :) :)
Good luck from my side.  ;)

My surgeon Dr. Pradeep Sharma, nothing short of an angel.
My caretaker: Thanks a lot for bearing with me.
The whole staff at hospital and guest house. I know you all would never read it, but all I want to say is thanks from the deepest part of mine heart.
My family, without them not just this but nothing is possible.
Lastly but most importantly God, who has always helped me achieve even deepest of my wishes.
Now, who can forget all fellow LLers here, such a huge thanks to all for sharing your experiences.

Thanks, for all your well wishes. I would have to very humbly say no to your request as I cannot walk because the surgery is LON and not pure Ilizarov, as mentioned clearly before. People with LON can't walk till their frames are removed. What I have done is LON, thus no video of walking possible. So sorry  :(

You definitely are a pathological liar and really have a pathetic life to live, as no one in their right mind would write such crap full of lies like yours. You haven't posted even a single video of yours, let alone video we haven't seen even a photo from you. You, again and again, barge on my diary and sh*t  here, don't you simply understand liars like you are not welcomed here.  I mean really don't drop so low. Better next time post a video otherwise don't bother writing a reply. Liars like you aren't welcomed. Wisen up and have a life. :)
Don't insult yourself more buddy.  I am posting a proof of all your lies here.

Hello Adward . Good luck with ur journey.
Its clear with the configuration of ur frame and the fact that u have the nail that u can't weight load so no need to confirm that. Just stay strong the journey will be very tough after lengthening because ur muscles weren't active for long time but u r strong and will pass this . Just keep ur motivation

Thanks for the positive reinforcement, it really means a lot. :)
I really think so too. Then again other than pure Ilizarov's technique, all other types of CLL comes with prolonged immobilization or very restrictive mobilization and as with any type of CLL muscle loss is a certain but unwanted outcome which can surely be overcome with the right type of physio and exercise. Also, I stayed positive all through the procedure and it made it a lot easy. Plus a physio like Harry is no less of a blessing.  Hoping for a quick recovery. Once again thanks. :)

Hi, actually I have irritable bowel syndrome and thus because of severe anxiety on the family front, I was having a real hard time managing it. Thus because of continuous loss of minerals and slow replenishment it happened. After all, it's not just LL but your whole body that needs to be taken care of. Things are sometimes not manageable, but then what to do, it's life. So no trouble, I am already working at it.  :)
But yesterday someone unknowingly praised me and gave me the strength to push through my other problems as well. Somebody just unknowingly acknowledged and said something that I knew but couldn't say to myself. So thanks to all the LLer bros and sisters who have kept my spirits up and for your timely concerns and wishes. :)

Let me explain myself better, diet and supplements. Why? Because it's all that is required. People don't understand callous very well. Callous is like a gelatinous matrix which gets formed in the very initial phase of bone formation, followed by mineralisation and then happens final remodelling where RANKL and IL-1 etc act in various capacities and also activates osteoclasts which execute the action. So here why you can see it vaguely is because I lost minerals due to constant loss from my body because of my irritable bowel syndrome and couldn't replenish as quickly.

Adward,
That's why in my opinion pure stable ilizarov is the best for tibia and for small amount of lengthening not more than 4-5 cms. + setup to correct the bones like Hexbods
Just be positive finish lengthening and focus on the next step. Based on my experience weight bearing ( standing , walking ) is the best to regain stability. Static stretching didn't help me at all.
When do u expect to weight bearing on ur nails after removing the ilizarov and locking the nail ?
-------
For ur callus it will be better to judge after 2 months of stop lengthening. I can see that ur fibula is ok and there is a visible lines on the tibia sides that connects the Two seperqted parts which is a good sign.
Good Luck

Bone forms after callous. I am tired of explaining medicine to non-medicos. Please don't repeat questions. Sorry but it's important as it bothers me explaining the same thing again and again. X-ray here has been taken with a special shadow effect so as to see the gap clearly. I hope not everyone should start being a doctor or a radiologist. These require years of college and experience and none on this forum is competent enough to be commenting that way. So please stop and enjoy the diary. I don't have the time and energy to waste on each idiotic question people ask here. Go study a book.

This is my last comment here .
For future LLers
Please
1 - don't lengthen ur lower leg up to 7 cms
2 - don't choose non weight bearing method or at least don't do that much if u can't load or u will stay alot in recovery.

Next time I would not be so humble and might name probable people who have been messaging Harry because of their personal obsession. Don't make me do that, so save your dignity however much that is left. Don't bullsh*t here.

I have reached 6.4 cm on paper today. The journey is getting shorter with every passing day. Hope the last 1 cm also passes smoothly. Experiencing some shin pain after standing for a while though, kind of normal because of all this inbuilt pressure and after so much lengthening, so nothing much to worry about.  :D
Have been doing more of weight bearing these days so as to avoid development of any complications. Hope to reach my goal soon. Best wishes.  8)

Presently I am the only foreigner patient. One might join from UAE in November but not yet confirmed. There are two more local patients though but they would leave in 3 months and don't live here with me but separately in a self-rented apartment by themselves. They are kind of two rich brats and don't like to mingle. Hope this helps.

have u thaught about wat u will say to ppl who will meet u after years and find u a bit taller than before?

Not yet...doing LL correctly and trying to avoid complications is my only concern for now. As per X-ray, I have reached 7.1 cm in my LL and 6.9 cm in my RL. Now I am having issues with one of my pins these days because of the pin cutting. But on paper, I am 6.5 cm in my both legs. So don't know what to do.

If I do 7 cm (on paper) suppose then I will be getting something like 7.7 cm in my X-ray. Can previous LL patients plz help me with this. Did LON or LATN patients experience any height loss (surely not much but still do mention if you have) after frame removal? No ballerina as of yet(but signs might start to appear soon)...as have been sandbagging constantly since 4cm and standing since 4.5 cm. Could somebody help me make a decision...can my last 9mm be bringing me much trouble or should I continue if nothing much happens?

Please share your experiences. Help needed. Did anyone other than Kilokahn experience anterior compartment syndrome, which is a new addition to even my knowledge. Please come up and write your views and share your experiences. Please write truthfully as it could be of great help to many future LLers...so please keep it productive.

So I have sort of entered in my last centimeter. Initially, I planned to do 7 cm or at max 7.5 cm but now that I had done 6.5 cm on paper but got 7.1 cm on my X-ray I feel I would stop at 7.3 cm or something (as on paper), which would be around 8 cm on my X-rays. Has anyone experienced this before? Please leave your opinion and experiences here for all of us to learn from.

Harry has taken care of a lot of patients before, maybe you should ask him or ask your doctor for advice.

That way I am protected and blessed. We discussed and it's not much of an issue as of yet as my muscles still have laxity and there is only 0.9mm more to go. It is because of Harry only and by God's grace that I have been able to achieve this. But then again I want to hear stories from actual patients also. How was their recovery 6 months after or a year after their frame removal? Did they also gain more in X-rays than on paper? which is kind of good for me. I remember Sweden saying he paid a heavy price for the last 1 cm i.e from 6 cm to 7 cm, so why did he feel so? etc
I mean Kilokahn's ant. compartment syndrome is an eye-opener for all of us. What is his actual age? Does anyone know? Because in the picture, his foot gives the impression of a really aged man in his 50's or 60's something. It's a very important question, as we can get to understand the cause and circumstances which could have led him to develop ant. comp. syndrome and try and avoid developing such situations ourselves.

Adward,
The lengthening in xrays is longer by 10-15% than the actual length so u can do the math now and calculate.
Also i don't know ur accuracy of turning but remember u r turing a 6mm thread nut that goes 1 mm for a complete revolution ( 360 degrees ) if u turned 10 degrees more every day for a long period u may end up with results more than expected.
------
7 cms is too much for tibia if i were u i would stop. From ur picture ur ankle looks good so just stop and focus on ur recovery.

Thanks a lot AR. But then should I trust the X-ray or my calculations? Because the margin is of ~6mm in the left leg. Thanks once again for sharing your views, it does mean a lot. :)

Post by: AR on September 16, 2018, 10:35:02 AM
Adward,
In fact u can't trust both. Because there is always some error in turning because at the end these are mechanical parts that have tolerances and compliance. And also the xray measurement has some erorr . My doctor told me sbtracte 10% of the xray length and this is the amount of lengthening. In fact one can expect to lose couple of mms than he expected.
-------
Sweden developed bad ballerina foot at this amount of lengthening and bf can happen in one night and he spent a lot of time trying to fix it without surgery.

I lengthened only 4 cms which was 43mm in x-ray i didn't develop any bf after lengthening but after correction using hexpods I developed 2 cms bf and knee bending they are almost gone after month but they are very bad complications and can make u hate ur self and push u back if u dnt have motivation. Im just sharing that because even at small lengthening with bad decisions u can develop complications yes they will disappear in short time because its only 4 cms but imagine 6 or 7 or 8 . Believe me 1 cm can save months of recovery.

No, I am very much alive, so stop worrying. I am healthy and doing well. My frames were removed a long time back and am now in my recovery. I stopped writing because of all the hate that I was getting, as in no way was it good for me. Soon I would leave for my home country.  My journey has almost come to an end and was lucky that I landed in safe hands here in India. Best of luck to all the future LLers. Stay healthy and happy.  :)

All movements and ranges of my knee joint are back to normal. I remember till sometime back I used to have knee shivering upon standing along with a slightly bent knee, but it seems to be getting better day by day. I am happy with my knee movements and these days Harry and me, we are working on my ankles. Had a wonderful meal last night with my caretaker and some other staff members. Am soon planning to go for a movie. Some suggestions...?

Generally, when I wake up I have a ballerina of about 1 to 2 cm and stays for almost an hour or two. During the day while I stand or walk this problem doesn't occur. I usually stand about 4 times a day with each session comprising of about 10 mins or so. In terms of walking, I can complete my daily routine rather easily and am on track to increase it.

It took me 2 month and half to get rid of ballerina but so far i didn't restore my full ankle ROM , it takes time . And unfortunately u need more than 90 degrees in ur feet to be normal , standing with a good posture, standing from the setting position, balance , going downstairs. I found that using crutches accelerates the cure for ballerina because i used to use walker but crutches are better .

When did you have your surgery and how's your R.O.M now?
How long did it take you before you started running again?
When did you start gyming again properly?
Do your nails bother you while exercising?

My operation was 26 of june 2018 , lengthened only 4 cms , I started correction in August , after that i had ballerina and knees bending , from august until 2 month and half I can put my heels confidently on the ground . Needless to say that my knees bending went very quick. I'm still have the frames. No nails just pure ilizarov, My ROM of the ankle is almost 93 degrees with straight legs ( knees extended ) so as i mentioned no peoblem in walking but other activities that require extra ROM i suck very bad .

As I am almost in the end phase of my journey and am feeling lucky about it, therefore now at times I do remember those days when I used to find others as lucky for having already completed their LL journey. I have also come to realize that it's not just a physically challenging pathway rather on the contrary it's more of a psychological one. Believe me, once you reach mid-way through your LL journey you start being happy like you have been never before, why because now your previous life goal is nearing its completion and suddenly you have time to think about your next 'big goal'. It provides you with a sense of relief and achievement at the same time.

So one take away for everyone from my journey till here would be that with LL you don't just transform yourself physically rather you also transform your little Edward soul which has finally finished its craving for height and has started to taste satisfaction for once after an awfully long period of time. Believe me, it's a life-changing experience both physically and mentally.

Hello, my friend, by radiography, it looks like everything is fine, in relation to the proportion you think it's going to be good even if you reach 8cm? what are the measurements of your femurs and tibias?
I understand that some people even stretching the tibia too much are within normal because they have very long femurs naturally,
I already am the example of the opposite my femur and tibia has approximate values ​​(approximately 42cm for tibia and femur) for me it would be great to lengthen the femur hahahaha

I hope you get over it quickly and be very happy it's a very big win to reach us at 7cm congratulations !!
and happy New Year !! You're going to start the year higher, it's very cool !!! :D :D
Title: Re: Adward- EXTERNAL TIBIA - Dr. Pradip Sharma INDIA
Post by: Sanity on January 04, 2019, 05:02:56 AM
In the x-rays the gap between the tibias is more than the fibula gap, meaning the fibula was pulled down or up, proximally or distally exactly as doctor paley suggests in this video. Thats y the alot of docs including the russians i was talking to do the fibular fixing at distal and proximal ends.

A photo, which was taken just after wax application. It's a very useful form of heat therapy. Harry really gives you his fullest but then you also need to put in all your efforts to have a wonderful outcome. It was a mammoth task made easy by the support of Harry and Dr. Sharma.  By God's grace, everything is as expected.

LOL. You are really naive buddy.  :)
That is to show the movements of my ankle joint. That's why you can see me doing movements like dorsiflexion, plantar-flexion, circumduction of the foot.

Do share your experience with me as well. How's your condition now? What difficulties do you face now in your everyday life? Hope the best for you. Do let us all learn from your positive and negative experiences with your LL, your mistakes, your corrections, your positive approach to deal with them. Better if you can summarise them all here. And would request other LLers to do the same here as well.
We can all learn from each other's experiences.

I would suggest you read my diary as I have already stated my reason for choosing Dr. Sharma and Harry. He had a very good track record of CLL backing him. Plus he is a respected surgeon in the community. Thus I made up my mind and went with him and by God's grace achieved wonderful results.

I chose LON because I found it most suitable for me. Fewer chances of nerve entrapment, less muscle wasting, faster recovery as compared to pure Ilizarov's and so-called hybrids. Also as compared to LATN, I found having one stressful surgery, a much better option than having two as in case of LATN.

I have made a decision to not to go to Dr Sarin for my surgery. I am considering some other ll doctors in India. May be, will soon come and meet you in person .

Hello

Can you give a little more info on pain killer use in terms of your medical opinion

What I mainly want to know in addition is

1) Any particular benefits of general anaesthesia over spinal? quicker to start exercising so you can maintain your muscle and mobility ?

2) Can we bear pain and avoid painkillers - heavy liver metabolism almost always ages the body and the face - which are extremely bad

3) Would you have done externals only over LON - now.

Thanks Adwards,

Hope you'll do well

Until now, do you have any regret ?

Im a curious about it, I am 17 and would like to know the opnion of people who have done that surgery. I just got started researching it a few days ago.

No, not at all. But please keep in mind that I am a doctor myself and onto that, I had a wonderful surgeon and physio in Harry by my side. So the journey went pretty much smooth. If your attitude is correct then LL is very much doable.

The charges were updated at the beginning of this year to USD 15k. If you have some private inquiry then you can contact Harry himself. You can email him at heryshgr@gmail.com or WhatsApp at 9560867721.

General anesthesia - Actually few patients report backache post spinal which is not medically evident but still why risk it?
But with spinal theoretically you avoid much of the surgical stress to your body as compared to GA. Also spinal provides pain relief for a longer duration of time (for almost 48 hours post surgery or even more if needed) which is not the same as with GA.

A young and healthy liver is perfectly capable of tackling such stressful situations, so you need not worry about it. A good doctor would neither let his/her patients overdose on painkillers nor would he/she let his patients suffer because of pain. Every big hospital has a special clinic dedicated to just pain management. But believe me, you need to be ready for painful 48 hours post surgery if going for GA. But then again listening to stories of so many patients reporting such post-procedural pain in case of spinal, I became a bit skeptical and therefore went on with GA. Again I would reiterate here that no such medical evidence is present which points to the spinal procedure being the reason for such backaches. You can go even farther than this and call it a medical myth, a myth which I gave into and therefore chose GA over Spinal.

If you go for GA, you can choose fentanyl infusion for the first few hours and then use Buprenorphine patch along with Dynapar or PCM infusion. You can go through my diary for more.

Yes, I would still go with LON. When I made this choice I thought thoroughly and didn't choose it just randomly. So no I would not opt for pure Ilizarov's (i.e externals only) or those so-called hybrids even today.

I hope my answer would be helpful.

Actually, I had this very same feeling before starting my journey. And yes, at times it was a bit scary and painful yet I knew that it was all for my greater good. It was then that I realized how much important these diaries are for LL newbies, as it's not just a source (semi-source) of information but also a source of support and encouragement. Here we call all speak about our insecurities openly. This is the place where we all understand each other and are not worried about being judged for our choices.
It is a place where we all can find solace. This forum gives us hope and confidence. And ultimately, it makes us brave thinking that we are all into this together for better or for worse.
Moral of the story is- If I am doomed so are they...in this case you all.....hahahaha ;D ;D ::) :o :o ::) ::)
And yes buddy you too will have a chance to gloat, flaunt or whatever and you too will have some friends who will envy you (in a good sense obviously)...hahahaha...just like me.  :) ;) ;)

Thanks a lot for your wishes and for such a cheerful message. And yes, we will all be with you in this life-transforming journey of yours :)

You may contact Harry directly. He can assist you in contacting Akito via him. Or alternatively you can message Akito or put a note in his diary. He is a genuine patient. Also need not worry about hygiene or anything....Harry takes care of everything for you.

You mean advice or Harry's details?
If you mean advice then the two advices from my side would be:
1) Do thorough research on the procedure you choose and be reasonable with you expectations.
2) Stay sane and don't be irrational. Be mentally tough.


For contacting Harry you can either use email or whats-app. His email address is heryshgr@gmail.com and his whats-app number is 9560867721.

Feels like you have some personal issues with Harry , I have read this diary and some of other doctors  diaries too I believe he worked good enough to gain such attention. People are sharing their experiences if you feel they are fake don’t read and just ignore. Nobody can fake pictures. Another fake diary???? Means there are many according to you. Then what are you doing here. Are you known to be a truth seeker. Why are you being so judgemental, this fella is there about a year and being here from few days you can say that the entire nine pages are fake.
