The front of my ankles still feel a bit knotted from the fasciotomy, but other than that I'm fine. Not much else to report although I hope to have a running video out at some point.

I don't think there have been any studies focused on leg lengthening's effect on risk for chronic exertional compartment syndrome, but both my trauma surgeon who removed my frames and the foot and ankle specialist who performed the fasciotomy told me that in theory leg lengthening puts you more at risk for developing CECS. They both think it's because the limb is made longer than it was supposed to be naturally and therefore the muscles have to work harder to move it than before, creating increased pressure in the compartments. The user Medium Drink of Water developed CECS after lengthening his tibiae 3 inches in Beijing, so I wouldn't be surprised if it's a relatively common CLL side-effect that for some reason doesn't get mentioned a whole lot.

Kilo.

I had shortering in leg and had a surgery to increase by 5cms. But now when I have increased around 4. I see a lot of pain and due to which I am unable to do my excersises.
Which resulted in poor knee flextion dropping from around 50° to 10-15°.
Did you face any such issue and how did you come across the same? I am worried because it pains alot due to the pins

On the days where I had unbearable pain for a prolonged period I was usually advised to decrease the distraction rate. Have you talked to your surgeon about the pain you have?

Yep. Had a word with my doctor. He told me to apply ice packs and massage.
But at times pins pain alot.
When I bend my knee by 5° the pain starts. Seems the knee has stiffness now.

Hey, how's going I remember when you still were during lengthening phase and were ordering pizza and such  ;D

Btw I see you did 6cm, did you do .3mm more or something like that to avoid loss ? Or you just stopped at 6 and didn't lose anything

Do you think it was worth it to get your LL done, after all this time?
