I think you are mistaken? in your previous post, you said that the 4 month stays with accommodation will be an additional 5000 USD, which is on top of the 5000USD Leg lengthening. Here you are saying that the 4 month stay is included in the price... which is it?
Hey sorry, maybe I make you guys confuse what I mean.
So 5500 usd for L.O.N
And for staying is another 5000 usd.
5500 USD just only for the 3 surgery and medicine and x-quang and stuff. Not include private room.
Sorry my bad. :D

Is the 4 month private room included in the fee or is it extra? How much extra money do you think I should bring in case of complication? I'm definitely planning to post a diary whenever I start LL.
Hey sorry i got you the wrong answer,
So for the L.O.N the fee is 5500 USD
for Illazavor is 5000 USD
this fee is only  for the surgery. Include all surgery fee and medicine and xquang hospital fee.
The private room and others convinence come in a package for 5000 USD
You can go back to my previous post to check what this 5000 USD include of. I think i post a quite long post about doctor and the insitute's information.
So for total, if you do L.O.N, I recommend you bring more than 10500 USD.
Maybe 14500 USD is what you should bring with you to cover if complication appear.

So does your leg feel any heavier when you're walking around with the nail inside your bones?

Actually, its lighter because the frames are heavy. About 2kg or something I guess. The nail make your knees feel tight. You will feel it inside your legs, like you know where is it inside you body but It won't hurt you.

For some of you if you have infection on pin sites. You should drink centella asiatica smoothy. It helps heep with the infection and wound healing.
When i was in the insitute, they make me to dink a glass of it everyday to prevent infections.
It tastes like nothing so they normally mix it with sugar.

Congratulations, awesome to see how life changing it was for you.

I have some questions, out of curiosity..
1) How much would you rate the average pain on 10, 0 being pre-op normality and 10 being pain that makes you wish you were dead?
2) Do people notice something odd regarding your proportions? 3" tibia lengthening + 3" heels is a lot of height for just the parts below the knee.
3) Is the average height of males there 5'4.5 or 5'7? I'm talking about your friends, social circles, etc. Google wasn't specific enough about India in the sense they take the average height of even malnourished people, and there are a lot of them and that skews the survey.
4) In your first post you said you'll do femur eventually too. Is that dream still alive or are you satisfied?

Hello Asiann123, i was wondering if you had to pay extra for the physical therapy while you were there? or did you have your own physical therapist that helped you do leg lengthening exercises everyday throughout your lengthening process?

Hello Asiann123, after consolidation (healing) is done can you leave the nails inside you? (to avoid the surgery)
I understand that you are in your own country, but do you happen to know if the doctors and nurses speak some English?  Is it common to see foreigners doing this surgery?
Do you work on your recovery alone or with a physiotherapist?

Sorry for flooding you with questions ;D

From what i've read, it is advise to remove the nails once your bone fully consolidate.. reason is that the nail can have an effect on your bone if left inside for too long. Your bone starts to weaken and something about you losing blood cells in places that supposed to be bone, but instead is now replaced with the nails.

I believe the doctors and nurses do speak some English. I have been in contact with them recently through emails, and all of our communications have been through english.

In regards to the physiotherapist, the doctor there told me that you need physical therapy throughout the lengthening process, they charge 20USD per session if you want their specific experience leg lengthening physical therapist (with 10 years of experience in leg lengthening therapy) to come visit your home and work with you through the physical therapy. Or you can pay for their all inclusive package which is 10,500 USD, where they cover your stay, meal, physical therapy, doctor access, medicine, x-ray fee or any sort of accommodation you need. This package is a 3 months deal.
