Then wtf did you get this surgery in the first place?

*facepalm*

Because being a short man (below 5'9", MAYBE 5'8", although that's really pushing it) royally sucks. And this surgery is the only means to get taller.

I agree. But not if he prefers function over height.

because these boards  were not nearly as negative before


being short does suck though...

but these boards used to be pretty  positive

Crimson, I agree with you. I've also noticed that these boards have become highly negative in the past year or so. These boards used to be so positive and gave me so much hope. I have plenty of hope in myself, and I know without a doubt I'm going to be fine in the end.

But these boards have become toxic in some ways. I'd almost suggest that mods somehow organize the board so you can have complete/positive diaries in one area and then all the unfinished/negative ones in another. Or, just find another way to organize all this information better. People should hear the negative stories too. People need to do their homework. I researched this surgery for almost 2 years, so nothing that has happened to me (except...that DAMN LEFT SCREW) has been much of a surprise.

I still would love another inch of height, and I feel very strongly that I'm not going to change my mind on that. HOWEVER - I am approaching it with a level head, trying to accept/enjoy what I've achieved so far, and will be super careful with how I go about getting the inch.

And again, men 5'9" and up (no matter where you live) really don't need this surgery. At those heights, it's just a luxury and (mostly) in their own heads. But, mazeltov to the 5'9" and up guys that get LL!

hi yellowspike, i think you should be very happy with 5,8 height.
That is 1.72, and with insole is a very good height. You will lose more athlety capability if you lengthen your tibias.
you should think that you lucky for that height and you don,t think in the person taller than you and yes in lot of persons and all womans are shorter than you.
good luck,cheers paco.

Thanks buddy. I'm generally 173 at night (a little above 5'8") unless I've done weight training where I've lifted heavy things that compresses my spine. But even then, I don't seem to ever dip below 5'8" which is nice.

I just want a small amount on my tibias, so I think I'll be ok if I do 3-4cm max. I don't know where you live...but where I live and for what I do, 5'8" is still bad. It's pretty much terrible.

Do you really, deep down, believe that 3 or 4cm is going to affect your career in any way?

Whether you think colleagues will treat you differently just because of the height itself, or because the height changes your attitude doesn't matter because both are fantasies imo. You're still gonna be the same, just a tiny bit taller. What happens when you go through all this and realise nothing has changed?

I don't believe I'll be treated any differently at all. But I will know the difference, know I can wear whatever shoes I want, no longer need to entertain the idea of lifts (which I refuse to wear, but am tempted to at times)...I will blend in better. I feel like I'm on the cusp of blending in, but don't. I want to be average.

you are going to inflict as much pain for 3 cm?
i think you can do 5 cm with a good doctor and no complications
but you choose

If I had the time, I'd probably do closer to 5cm on tibias. But for time reasons (tibias take so damn long to consolidate), as well as safety, I'll probably do at max 4.

I have seen Microman online here several times. He was online today as a matter of fact. He is definitely still out out there and alive. I used to speak to him on a regular basis through PM. He was a decent guy and extremely brave to this operation. But either way, I hope he is well and is having a good recovery. I'm sure he'll come back to tell us everything that has happened really soon!

Would also love to hear how his experience was, since I also consider going to Dr. Mitkovic.

So, Microman, if you are reading, please drop us a few lines... :)
