Still have a little duckass(<1cm). It won't go until I walk unaided like a normal person and do exercises. I'm not stressed, it's not severe.

How many months post- operation you're at right now? its better to right details

I think its a little bit long, do you think you should be able at least to walk (crippled) after this time?

Do you think if it was Guichet nail which support full weight barring you would be able to walk right now?

Update: Walking with crutches. Dr. Parihar told me to walk with crutches 2 weeks ago but I took it extra slow and started now. Way harder to use than the walker. I think out of Precice patients I'll start walking the latest, but I have absolutely no regrets.

Yeah but I was given less weight bearing during my lengthening and I was a little lazy after. Can't comment about Guichet nail.

It's written in my diary somewhere but I think 11mm. I could be wrong.

With the walker! I didn't poop for 2-3 days after my LL cause I barely ate anything. I was helped sit and get up from the bedside camode so I didn't go to the bathroom at first.

hey penguin

it is sad you have had non-consolidation despite a breezy experience otherwise. i hope it gets better.

do you still have aches and pains from the procedure? were you very muscular in the legs before? i go to the gym and now i am thinking of stopping it to lose some leg muscles.

I didn't have non-consolidation/non-union! I never said that. I just had a slower consolidation but the improvement picked up in the past few months and I'm expecting to be allowed to walk unaided in May.

No aches or pains. Only feelings of tiredness in muscles after walking, the kind you get after exercising. I wasn't very muscular but a little in the quads.

keep walking as much as you can. The nail itself is quite strong and if doc said you should walk keep doing so.

What do you mean by walking unaided? is it walking normally without people notice, or just walking without crutches and walkers like a Penguin ?

My total walking time (w/crutches) is 1 hour a day. Sure, it may be strong but if I break it now I'll legit fall into depression. I have a lot of things planned for the coming months so I'm playing it a little safe. Still doing my weight bearing.

@Kaiser By unaided I mean without crutches.

sorry i mis understood that you had non-consolidation.

on the whole would you recommend the doctor? has there been any aspect about him and the centre that has not satisfied your expectation? i read about how you were not happy with the hospital in your diary but other than that, are there any other complaints? were they all professional with you?

when i visited two orthos near me to ask about cll they discourage me from doing this. they also sarcastically wished me best of luck as if i am for sure bound to get screwed. they were both amused and found it funny that i need to do this for my height.

I would recommend Parihar for sure. He didn't give me any complications and dealt with the Precice nail malfunction perfectly in the OT. The hospital is not state of the art barring the OT, but I think someone really determined to do LL can overlook that if they're getting a great surgeon, especially considering other Indian surgeons' track record. They were professional, but to be honest I never experienced what they would behave like if I had a complication since my process went pretty smooth.

I don't know your height, but they do that despite what your starting height is. When I was 5'2, my bloody 6'2 or something endocrinologist scoffed at me wanting LL telling me height doesn't matter. A second endo(female) asked me if I was trying to be a model, cause there's no other reason to get LL at 5'2 ::) Even Parihar, despite being 6'3 or something himself told me that 3 inches wouldn't make an iota of a difference(I think he was just testing my fortitude). If you know for sure that LL will make your life much better, like I did, then you can shrug this bullcrap off. If you're 5'8 or something and having trouble justifying it to yourself already, this will definitely make you more doubtful and it should, it's a perfect sh*t test to weed out the wrong patients.

Being 5 8" or above Will do more difficult that he accepts you, sh+-, becuase I know that has high technical abilities. What would be your recommendation since you were there for the hurdle( consultation).

That's not what I said. I said if you have trouble justifying LL to yourself, and a doctor sh*t tests you like going "You know it won't really help you, right?" it'll confuse you.

I recommend not opening up about your sob story and just parroting out something like "I see myself at a level that my height doesn't match". Sadly most doctors can't relate. While it's nice that Parihar isn't just accepting all patients for the $, I think telling a 5'3 guy he needs therapy was lame. Only therapy a 5'3 guy needs is a couple inches.

penguin

how were in touch with the doctors during lengthening? did you have their phone numbers / whatsapp? or did you just email them?

how many times did you visit the clinic before getting operated? i want to decide how many days plan i should keep to plan and possibly even decide the surgery because i am not in bombay.
