I continued my lengthening. The gap finally shows an increase of 7.8 and 7.6cm. You have to discount the magnification of the xrays . It is supposed to be around 7%.
I have very good callus formation and In my opinion if your bone is hard the fitbone has difficulties to lengthen and maybe it will not get the full 1mm per day. I dont really know if this is the way it is in reality but is my personal opinion so i can be wrong. I say this because finally i had to do more lengthening than the gained amount.
Im 172cm from my measurements when i wake up inmediately from bed. So my gained height is something between 6.5 and 7cm.
Im in the consolidation phase and 4months and ten days post op.
I have been walking unaided for around 10 days know.
My walking is improving but it is not normal yet. It is slowly than it was before surgey because i have muscle tension but i think that its good for a little more than 4 months post op with the amount i lengthened.
Im working hard in my recovery stretching 4 times per day ,doing elliptica and some exercises to get more strenght.
Hope you are doing great!
Above you mentioned that gap was less than it should be according to clicks, right?
I am asking because this is what happend to me and 3 other patients undergoing lengthening at the same time.
It is no problem, but it is something everyone should be aware of!
It seems to us, that the more bone formation we have the bigger the difference. For example, at the beginning x-rays matched what I had calculated by the clicks. But lately the gap has become larger. Now I am at 6,3 cm according to clicks and according to x-rays only 5 cm.
Can you confirm something similar?
