Hello Guys. Finally im going to have this surgery with Dr Monegal in september. I know that CLL exists since 11 years ago. When there was very little  information and a few diaries in the net. At that moment i havent had the money to afford the procedure but i was  always thinking that some day i will do it. Now the time has come and its time to get taller! Im 165 at the moment and my goal is 7cm.
I have always been the short guy. Since school years when i was the second shortest guy in a class of more than 20 children. Height has been a big handicap in my life. It makes you harder in dating and people dont take you as seriously as they take the average or tall guys , i expect to change this and be more comfortable with my self. Dont look to a mirror and see a very short guy any more :D.
Im scared of fat embolism when performing bilateral femurs. This is very rare to happen but if it happens it could be a big problem, so i talked with Dr Monegal and he will decide if we do both femurs at the same time or only one during surgey looking at how i am at that moment. Hope all goes well and we could do both, because it will be much better for me but health is the first important thing.
I think that i have taken a good decision going to dr Monegal and doing internals. For a big period of time i was thinking that i was going to do LON but femurs will look better than tibias on me and i want to aboid external fixator in femurs. Another important thing is that i think that people who does internal femurs recover much better than those doing LON in tibias.
I have been in the forum since two years and talking with Dr Monegal since one year ago. He replied my emails very fast and has been very supportive.
I will keep you guys informed about how all goes. And i need your support in this long journey that is going to start soon :)

Cheers KrP1

Hey Roommate!  ;D

Looking forward to finally seeing you in person. Let me know if you have any logistics questions. By the way, if your laptop power cord is a bit short remember to bring an extension cord and a universal socket adaptor!

Today i have taken a plane flight to barcelona. I arrived at the airport in the afternoon. I took the bus to plaza catalunya .The price of the tiket was around 6 euros.  In that place i took the subway to the nearest station to my hotel. Now im in my room listening to some motivational music for my surgery tomorrow ;D . So much time wanting to do this and now im only some hours away from it  8)

Good luck KrP1!   The hardest part of any journey is to make the decision to go for it, not just saying "some day....."

You made a very good choice. Dr. Monegal is (maybe together with Dr. Birkholtz) the best budget internal option out there. I've met him myself in Barcelona last month to discuss my complications. He is very professional and knows a lot about LL. Good luck on your way to become taller!

I had a surgery to fix complications 2,5 weeks ago (with another doctor, but I am sure Dr. Monegal would have been a good choice too).
Anyway, I don't want to hijack KrP1's diary, it's about his LL!

Hey guys!!
I had my surgery yesterday and im doing really well and without pain! The medication they give you after surgery maintains your pain level almost non existant . so i had a good night.

I had epidural anesthesia with sedation and i hightly recomend it. I was sleeping during all the surgery.

Dr Monegal told me that the surgery went perfect! He  did surgery on both femurs  without any problem so im very happy with how all is going .
 
Im very motivated to achieve my goals!! So lets go!

That's awesome dude! I was wondering when you were going to go get it done! I thought you weren't gonna be able to do it this year but I guess not; what circumstances allowed you to go through with this? I'm happy the surgery went well for ya and hope you have a good time. My best regards!
