Yo - Clinical Diagonal feels like a decade ago...Nice to see the video. Probably the best hospital and service i've ever experienced. When are you arriving at MIC? I'm here now  8) Would be awesome to hang out!

At this point, I think it's easier to do bilateral tibias than two stages with femurs. knee suffers less. I can handle by myself the third day between the bed and wheelchair and go to the bathroom.

I feel better right leg than the left one, but it is normal, I had more curly my left leg.

I took a stolen picture of the Dr. Monegal / Dr. Donghoon Lee / Frenchman Dr and a girl while they were taking a snack, and I was waiting for admission



I will try to upload the x-ray of the osteotomy

@kimthien2246 I can not forecast the weather, and I had my first surgery 1 year and 9 months.

@InferiorityComplex Alberto the PT told me about a patient in the Mics, I do not if it would be you. I will be in a hotel/apartment of my best friend. But it easy to meet in x-ray or just for a coffee.

Hi yagen,

From experience do you think I can go for a walk around 3 weeks after surgery somewhere around barcelona, I feel like it's a shame I'm in one of the most touristic cities in the world and I'm not seeing anything ..anyways all the best for you.

@InferiorityComplex I have sent you a PM

@Datum I respect your opinion.

@U only live once in three weeks you will be very good, and every week you feel stronger but think the street is hard, I was frightened when the ground was wet, it is very slippery. Think twice, you can do normal things but if someone pushes you, you are going to fall. Becarefull, its time to think about LL and recovery, you can visit Barcelona in next years.



I was very lucky than 4 doctors of different countries were in my surgery Experts in Fitbone and Precise. I just tell my trip.

Dear mates,

I am in the final days of lengthening. I have wanted to be outside of the forums focus in lengthening, workout.

I attached a video of the evolution, till now I had not any complications, I have been very carefully, I have been a lot of time in the wheelchair, doing bicycle and workout routine.

I think tibias are a little more painful than femurs. I have not ballerina problems, but I have to focus on the full extension of my knee.

I could hand by myself between bed, wheelchair, and restroom the third day after surgery.

Pros of bilateral vs Two stages.

- You only focus on the pain of your worst leg.
- Just one surgery

Cons

- you are not independent like with crutches, drive a wheelchair in the street is an odyssey and you need an assistant for anything.

It is a personal decision bilateral/two stages.

I will try to answer all de Private message that I have.

Yagen is your final height will be more than 180cm? Can you specify how much height do you gain( or will gain) in each surgery ?

I try to answer some private message.

My height is now about 1,84-1,85 with shoes.

I did 6 cms in femurs and 4 in tibias.

I think that tibias are a little more painful because the worst stage in lengthening is between 1 and 3 cms. But after one week finished lengthening you feel without pain just a little pain in the knee in the muscles because I have to improve my extension of the knee but everyday muscles accept their new height.

I dont have any pain in the insertion of the nail in the knee.

I will have a new Xray next week to check the consolidation.

Why you did so little CM in each limb? would you along  longer more Cm  if you want to ,Is it either a doctor limitation or your option for safety issues?, as I know femur can go up to 8 cm and tibias go up to 6,5 cm,why you don't go to get these 14,5 cm?

With shoes and socks, right?
So that your actual height would be around 1,82?
Have a great recovery!

@enrique this is a surgery with you have to manage some doubts at the beginning.
I remember two years ago with my first appointment with Dr Monegal, I want to reach to 8 cms, it is possible some users (like bohemia) have done. But for me first I reached 5 cm and I saw that my body can do 1 cm more.

Think that some people have pre consolidation, but other have a low consolidation and no union.

You have to manage risk and reward, for me, 6 cms in femurs and 4 in tibias are safe goals.

Other point is proportions, 14 cms are too much. I remember Iamready he did 7+5, and he wants to wear flat shoes. And after of that, he did LL in the humerus.

Sometimes less is more.

@helloworld
I will be lower than you, but we can compare next time in our next coffee.
I will wear snow socks :p
