I don't usually write,  but last few months was the toughest time in my life.
So I want to share it to people who want to this surgery and ask them to think over and over. Or at least go with advanced internal options.
I did my external surgery mid Nov and planing to remove my frame next month if everything goes well.

I read a lot of diary,  people share their experience,  some people say they could walk after 3 days post surgery and it gets easier day after day.
My experience has been totally different,  it's been more than two months and I still can't even stand up,  I have duck ass and I can't extend my knee more than 140 degree.
I have experienced so many different pain, I got bad Edema and the longest and worse pain is burning,  I feel my feet are in fire sometimes and don't have any nerve pain killers.

Growing up,
I have broken my arm,  my nose ,  I've been in surgery room a few times before,  but LL is a different beast. It makes me scream and cry sometimes.

I understand, Big Decision.  LL is very, very difficult process.  Really, there is no typical experience because everyone is different.  Where are you from? Who is your Doctor? I assume that you are lengthening your tibias? How long did you lengthen so far?

@shortguy4cll - How old are you? What do you do for a living? Tell us a bit more about you.   I understand that your height is something that is making you feel down and depressed.  Being short and male has its challenges.

i honestly cant live a fulfill life. Thats why i am so sad. I am in Canada. And people are very judgemental. They judge you on your looks. Like they judge everyone. I have had job opportunities, promotions I have been passed down. Turned down by many women. And had friends abandon me because of my height. But I didnt know it at the time. I dont know about anyone else. But my life is pretty sad.

Day 45 Post Op - Journey Continues... My left leg bugg'n again [3.308 cm or 1.303 inches Taller!]

Greetings LL'ers,

Today was another pretty chill day. I dealt with most of the same issues as before which Ill summarize below. I will say this...one disappointment was that my left leg started to hurt me a bit today (again)...so i had to stay off of it most of the day. If history repeats it self; it should be feeling okay within a day or two so long that I do not aggravate it much.

Pain: In the previous night, I had about a 4 pain with my legs/knee area, of course since I was sleeping and my legs were locked into the same position..so pain happened as i woke up. I stood up and walked around a bit, stretched and got back into bed. During the day, I had little to no pain while resting my legs.  While walking and bearing weight; my left leg has a sore spot that I'm compensating for a bit.  Other then that; I'm okay in pain category at this time.

Flexibility and movement: I did well with stretching; but as far as walking around/movement, today was rough due to the sore left leg. I hope to report more tomorrow or following day; once the left leg soreness goes away.

Today's' Activities: I did very little.  Self-PT, Some work, and that was about it.

All in all, the day was just fine.  I'm keeping an eye on my tightness and left leg soreness.   I can't wait to get to 2 inches.  I'm about 16 days away. 

Okay Guys, if you have any questions, feel free to let me know.  Talk soon and best regards.

I understand.  I definitely think shoe lifts are great way to ease the discomfort in certain social situations.   Either way, try not to allow height situations to predetermine outcomes.   You can live an incredibly fulfilling life; meaning a life just as great as a tall man; so long that you give yourself a chance to.
