aww man but i still have so many questions. if anyone is reading this, do you know if guichet had any patients that had their nails bend? i only wanna know whether it was their fault or not. Cause i'm having a difficult choice btw Betz or Guichet. N i know a lot of Betz patients had their nails snap but most of it was their fault. (apothesis, andrewshizzle, oldiebutgoldie(his screws broken cause he walked without crutches too much, but thats not too bad))

I was ~ 73 kg right before the surgery n i didn't suceed in bending the screws (not even talking about the nails). Unless u don't respect guichet's recommendations, it must be super hard to break sthg.

cool i plan to be 130lbs just in case. yea i figure guichet's nails were superior to betz anyways. so can i walk with out the walker everyday? i know some of betz patients did that n they bend their nails n i cant afford a replacement.

hi connorcranston!
please notice that Guichet stresses the need for muscle strength in the legs (usually he would ask you for a strength gain of 30% in the legs measured by the Cybex machine), and in the flexibility.
also, you will need strength in you upper body for moving around in the walker and in crunches.
i actually gained weight since i started training, from 67kg to 71kg..
i don't think you can loose weight and simultaneous gain strength..
and if you are going for 10 cm, i don't think Guichet will go easy on the physical preparation.
leechlet gained only 18% strength on his legs and made a split before the surgery, but he was already in Italy, so it was not easy for Guichet to say no (at least that's my theory..)

hey connorcranston, i didnt see anyone with bent nails, but my sample size is too small to be conclusive. i cant say anything about betz because i havent even met the guy. i think in terms of walking around, the nail strength is only one of the problems. its super hard to walk around with two broken legs.

hey guys, so i've been getting way too many emails and skype messaged and youtube posts to answer them all, but i basically get the same 3 questions all the time: 1. how much was it? 2. starting height? 3. who is your doctor?

i am dedicating a youtube section to answer these basic FAQs


anyways, just thought i let u know. i tried making an annoucement on old forum , but maybe the server is down or something but i cant post on there anymore for some reason. gives me some werid error. anyways, let me know what other topics should be covered. i think i have covered just about everything, but i guess ppl want to find info rlly fast so i started the FAQ series.

best regards!  ;)

Hi Leechlet,

Firstly many thanks for sharing with us your experience, it is super helpful!!!!

I have seen all your your tube videos and sorry to bother you, I will understand if you do not answer me!

I have done the first consultation with Doctor Guichet and I am convienced that he is the one, I really liked him, he looks very professional and strict. Now it is just a matter of finding the right moment for me, career wise I need to find a moment where I can take 3 months off.

I wanted to ask you a couple of questions and would be incredibly grateful if you'd come back to me  ;D:

- How long did it take to feel fully recover? Are you able to run, walk completely normal?
- Was the pain too strong?
- One of my main concerns is how can I share it with my husband and my family, when I tell them that I want to do it they will think that I am out of my mind, did you also had this problem?

Many, many thanks!!!!!

Paris

I think he's decided to go off the grid. He mentioned it a few times in posts/videos before and how he understands why people decide to go offline after successfully getting it done (they want to move on with their life).

Think patients should do their research. If they cannot even do their research for these basic questions, why do the surgery? Its so tough that you shouldn't enter it unprepared.

Yeah i think so! Some years ago, i've found a comment from him on a website where he mentioned his nail removal by an american doctor. Cannot remember which site it was and who removed the nail. Back in 2014 when he did all his youtube videos, i had the impression that Dr. Guchet was somehow pissed about his vlogs. I can also remember his epic breakdown in a video where he regreted the CLL.

Did someone save his youtube videos?
