If your whole story is true, then this is amazing. To go from 167 to 181cm... We live in crazy times.

Can you already walk? Do you still feel pain in your legs?

Yeah I can walk bro, I mean I removed the frames on my legs like 2 years ago. There is no pain now.


There's some strange crap happening with my humerus regenerate. I was about to remove both of the frames, but then we did a clinical bone test - you can see the result on the xrays. The bone is too soft and bends with pressure, then returns to normal position. Looks like I'll need another month or two.

No pain at all?

How about running and jumping? I know LL patients don't normally look to do that all the time, but it doesn't hurt to ask.

I also didn't see it asked, but: besides obviously wanting to get taller, what really prompted that impetus in you? What was it that made you decide that you wanted over 13cms, and that you'd get it - despite all the pain, costs, etc?

How has your personal life changed since then?

Hello Overdozer,
How are you doing with the consolidation? I can only imagine how furstrated you might be with the situation. I am also intrested to hear how are you able to use arms now that consolidation is going. Are your muscles tight? Any nerve pain?

I have been contacting my own countrys specialists about AL, but its really tough to find anybody with the knowledge. I found one doctor with leg lenghtening experience, but that is hes only speciality. Seems like i will have to travel to Italy for my consultation.This is a shame.

Yo. I'm still consolidating so yeah... Hopefully I can remove the externals this month, but idk.
I don't have any pain or tightness and it's been the same since I stopped lengthening. However my pins are badly inflammed currently, at this point I have to remove the externals.

Thanks.

Had one frame removed just now. I took 800mg of flupirtine+ 500mg of nimesulide. Actually didn't feel anything when they removed the thick pins, but the one thin pin was quite painful. Interestingly, for the legs, the thin pins were less painful, probably because the area where they were intalled didn't have much soft tissue or smthing.

Last external frame is off.

Scars aren't pretty, they are pulled-in and I will be fixing them in a few months with Dr Kulesh. After that I'll be correcting them with a laser. And after I'll probably tattoo my arms to cover the leftover white scars.

Shoulder ROM is overall good expect for side raises. But I'm sure I'll be able to fix it in a few months.

My body shape is dogcrap currently. I will start working out as soon as I'm allowed to. My goal is 90 kg 10% bf. With some gear ofc.

Yeah. That's about it. I won't be visiting the forums much. I may tune in when I reach milestones, but idk. I mean it's not hard but I'm unsure if I want to be reminded of the hell I went through. And also I find the fact that I had to do all of this somewhat shameful. Also I feel like this place became kinda toxic - look at the previous pages of this thread for example, a lot of negativity and no respect. And why care to update the diary, when you get harassed for it. Anyways. I may or may not come back. But for now...

Peace out, girl scouts.

Congrats man! Youre a real LL veteran :D

I think that the gear is awesome idea. Some good cycle will help your body fully heal. Just make sure you dont take it too fast. Spend maybe 3 months lifting with creatine etc and then get on a cycle. If you gonna be 5'11" and around 42 cm arms youre gonna look awesome. Also after LL biceps grows like crazy, similar to calfs. Fukc  knows why :D

I know that Russian women  like masculinity so you should have a good life.

PS. If you could post some xrays it would be great. Cheers.

Thanks for the update, Overdozer! Glad that you're almost done with your journey. I hear you about the toxicity, I don't blame you for feeling this way. Drop us a line if you're ever in the mood.

Hey, man, I apologize for the stupid posts I made in your thread, including for ignoring the evidence of all you went through. I was a bit overwhelmed having discovered CLL shortly ago.

Thank you for sharing all the details about your journey for the good of the rest of the community.

I hope your life only gets better from now on and you get all you expected out of life.

Its Muscle Memory, I got like 49/49,5 even after a break i would comeback quite fast. I wish I could be in your place right now. Everything is in front of me, because i am doing two segments in 1,5 year to just stop thinking about this after surgery. Feel happy for you.

90kg with 10% fat on an 1.67 body is almost impossible without roids.
I am 90kg, I was 1-2cm taller than you before LL, I work out more than 10 years in a row (except from almost 1.5 year break when I did LL), I have 47cm arms and my bodyfat is about 14%.
It is impossible to have 10% bf and be 90kg with an 1.67 body (the height we have after LL doesn't play any major role, our torso height is what matters and not some extra cms in legs).

If you want 10% bf don't go over 80kg.

@Overdozer

Congrats on your success mate, huge respect!  8)

I am currently planning on going to St Pete in January/February next year to have either tibia or femur lengthening. As you did both - which one has better recovery times and which one is more painful? Also, what about pricing, is any one of the two more expensive than the other?

Regarding accommodation, I was planning on staying in St Pete for the duration of lengthening because I want to be close to the doctors. I do speak some Russian, and with the rouble being quite cheap these days it appears to make sense. What do good flats close to the hospital cost? For me it's just important to have good wifi and a nice big TV for my PS4 ;D

About myself: From London, 172cm short, planning on doing 5cm-6cm. Heard doing more than that will be bad.

Best regards
