I lengthened At 0.8mm then It happened what you have Said. At this.rate if you had good Bone formation you Will preconsolidate at around 6cm. if you are turning at less than 0.8 It could happen earlier.
My advice IS to lengthen in doctor Mode (seems to have more potencie) because in my experience It helped me to obtain some mm more and a Big amount. Like 1.5 per day for some days. measure your gap or height to see if you are growing or its too late. In my opinion when the Bone IS getting harder you lengthen less than what you think. So 0.8 could be much less. Speed up your lengthening now if you want to continúe lengthening. Thats My advice.

1.5MM seems excessive for soft tissue. I'd prefer to reach 6CM at 0.8 per day, optimally slightly slower than to sacrifice soft tissue health and elasticity for extra gain. A second osteotomy would be preferential to over lengthening - soft tissue damage isn't reversible.

I think that when this happen you dont obtain the full 1.5mm. you Will know It because you arent going to have the same pain as what you are expecting to have if you are really doing 1.5. obiously if you start to be in much pain slow It again.

Great! Thanks for fast reply! I apreciate it!

I tend to agree with 682, I am also afraid of more than 3 clicks session per day.
So I have lengthened slowly, 5 cm over 3,5 months. But every time I was close to consolidation and the screws would not longer turn, I would switch to doctor mode and break the resistance, just as you described!

Hello,

I've just read your diary and it sounds awesome.
How are you so far? Are you able to run, and do anything you could before LL with no discomfort at all?

Best Regards

Hi. Yes .  I can run fast, jump and do everything. I only feel some disconfort in the knees if i kneel like doing squats or lunges in the gym. But it´s only that, discomfort. So im very happy with the outcome.
Regarding to height, i feel much better than before, but im still in the short side so im not happy at all. Maybe some day i would do tibias too...

Thanks for the answer! I'm pretty sure you already knew how much it would mean to me!

On a scale of 10, how good do you think your athlethic agility is according to your pre-op lvl?

So, the only thing changed in your body is that now you have longer femurs, is that all? Are you able to balance very well?

Best Regards!

And sorry, forgot to ask,

Don't misunderstand me please, I really do respect you and I'm so damn glad for you. You did your best to achieve your dream. You are a brave person.
That is being said, may I ask why do you still use the forums? Considering tibia and trying to get more info etc.?

Best Regards, again

Yes. Dr Monegal removed the nails. The recovery was very fast. I was walking like in a week.

My athletic agility is less than before the surgery, but its something that you could notice only when very demanding sports like football or basket. if it was 10 before, now its maybe 7. I dont notice it in my daily life as i dont usually do that kind of sports.

As i said in the other post, im still a short person. So sometimes i look the forum to see if there is new info.
Another thing is that i like to help other people by sharing my experience.
