Dude antoky,

You are literally the best looking middle age man I've seen ever. You are as fit as a bull, and you seem to know like 10x more than the ppl at the isokinetic center. Honestly, i pay 90 euros so someone can tell me to warmup and then stretch. It gives me structure and motivation. I am a lazy asian computer/econ nerd that would just play starcraft all day if left to my own. I don't have the kind of muscles like you.

Definitely don't use the isokinetic center because you are waaayyyy beyond anything they can offer you, as least pre op. I have no idea about post op since i haven't gotten there yet, but i'll let you know.

Show Dr Guichet your body and your vids. I'm sure he'll make an exception. I mean, dude, you are soooo fit and just in really wonderful shape.

Dear friend, I thank you very much for your words!

If anyone would care about his body at least the same way they care about their cars, middle-age men would easily look like me: good sleep, good food, good workouts, good sxx, good books about life..such as the two books of Robert Pirsig or Finite and Infinite games of James Carse...

I will meet the doctor who cares about Guichet patients that Tuesday at Isokinetic (the upcoming 14th) and I will speak to him about my need to frequent his center after the op: really I do not think I will ever train there before the op...I hope he would agree.

Again, I appreciate your words very much.

Cheers.

Hi guys!

So Wilbert, the helper guy, increased his prices by 20% for no reason. I decided to go with another helper I met at the isokinetic center who also cares for LLers. She is much more reasonably priced.

I also decided to go look for new apartments because the guy at the old place I was interested in felt like he scamer. He was rlly pushy and exagerates everything to a point where you can make an argument that he's never honest. He might just be bipolar as he admited, but I didn't want to deal with that.

Anyways, new vids. Check them out!

Hi Leechlet,

Just wanted to let you know that I'm enjoying your diary and your blogging style. I'm finding myself checking in on your diray multiple times per day.

Bummer with that landlord but if it didnt feel right, it probably wasnt going to be.

Best of luck and thanks for keeping us updated...

Your video monologues are a priceless insight into the pre-LL psychology and the practical process otherwise, and is also in general incredibly interesting to watch, especially because it's "live". You're well articulated and seem like a very intelligent and mature guy who's also seems to have an above average capacity for introspection and self-awareness. I wish you the best through this whole thing and after, will be following your progress closely. Keep it up and happy new year.

Thanks guys!

You are all really awesome! I am making this channel to capture the finer points of LL that mere words could not. I hope that by doing this, ppl can get a more realistic and holistic view of LL.

Anyways, happy new year!

Like for example, by reading my last post, what can u gauge about my current state of mind? Happy? Sad? Anxious? Actually, I am rlly bored. I am going to go out and eat even though I am not hungry bc i am bored. Lol.

Anyways, take care all you fellow LLers out there and if you know any good music, let me know. I listened to my entire iphone library like a gazillion times in the last two weeks. The reality of LL is that it could be stressful and exciting and sometimes even depressing, but most of the time it is just rlly normal and boring.  :P

"If I Ever Feel Better" - Phoenix

Been listening to this nonstop the past day, such a sxxy song.

I don't know what you listen to, but if you like Alt Rock, I can give you 5 different albums to listen to.  Spotify is godsend!

hey guys, i made some more vids including one with dr guichet. i convinced him to allow me to film him and put him on my channel. i am making a list of  topics for him to talk about in short videos of 3-10min long each. he talked a lot today about how he designed the nail, and i thought it would be interesting for him to talk about all the insider stuffs bc i love science. i had no idea how much work went into something like that.

i am also making a vid on what i think of apothoesis and other random thoughts, some which may be a little contraversial. but i don't give a fuc*. why? bc my parents are paying for the surgery and i can say whatever i want. i am documenting this limb lengthening journey as realistic as possible. that's the advantage when i am not financially dependent on any of the players in this limb lengtheing arena.

just youtube my channel by searching leechlet

i have tooooooo many videos over 30+ and i am not going to copy and past each one here

give it some time as these vids take a long time to upload.

Hey people!

This is the last post and the following vids are the last ones I'll make before surgery next friday. I am going to take a week to get my last minute affairs together, but more importantly take some time to be alone and center myself for the long fight ahead.

The first video is regarding my theory of limb lengtheners, and what kind of people I think ultimately end up getting limb lengthening based upon what I observed. It is an ongoing theory of mine, but I feel it is super important because as I am beginning to see, limb lengthening is soooo psychological. Dr Guichet was right. After all, the man does this for a living. For those of you who haven't gotten limb lengthening yet and is depressed about your height, I know nothing I say could change that. But please watch this vid, sleep on it, and I think it will make the mental component of LLing much easier once you actually do it:



Finally, I want to say a temporary farewell as I might not upload vids until the weekend of 25th. First week is usually super busy, but make no mistake that I will be filming this whole time. Also, in this vid, I share some tips on what I would've done differently. Good bye for now ppl! See you post op!

I agree with almost everything you said.

Leechlet, where in the US are you from? Just curious, you can PM me if you want.

If you live close to my location then I would love to meet you in person someday, discuss LL in depth, etc. It is also a hard decision for me to come to.

I watched the videos and I can see how much pain you are in and while I am relaxing and having a nice easy life I would trade places with you in a heartbeat. :) I hope to be in your shoes by the end of next year getting taller.  Stay strong.  You will be much better in a few days.

I'm almost speechless, watching your post-surgery videos. Just wanted to say your video diary is simply groundbreaking and really, really important for anyone considering LL. This is totally unique and very powerful. It's extremely brave of you to document everything openly like this. I wish you the best during the recovery, you really deserve to get through this in the best possible way, and I think you can.

I really like the videos featuring Guichet and his expertise. Its always good to hear from the man himself.

My diary. Tibias+femurs 3.75+3.75cm at the Paley Institute (5'5" -> 5'8") in my late 30s.
One of the last patients to use the PRECICE 2.2 nail. I met the first STRYDE patient and I strongly recommend the new STRYDE nail instead.
