I slept around 6/7 hours this night then in the morning an assistant of the clinic came to my room with my breakfast and a letter with diferent menus to choose. it reminds me like been in a restaurant hahaha.
I told her the one i want for lunch and for dinner.
At middle morning a physioterapist of the clinic came to my room with a Kinetec machine. I did Physioterapy with it for half of an hour in each leg. Then in the afternoon i had another PT session. I can feel how my legs are more relaxed after the sessions.

Pain level from 0 to 10  for me is like 2  .  I think that the epidural help a lot with this.
The catheter is not a big deal . I have a little discomfort with it . but The nurses will propably get it out tomorrow

Today one nurse took my epidural and the catheter out.  The epidural definitely makes your pain almost non existent. Pain level is about 3 now so it increased a little but i have not had much pain during this process  as pain meds are doing well  their job.

Yesterday was my last day at the Clinic .
Dr Monegal has been a very caring doctor. Caming to see me allways that he could. Even some days twice.
He came to my room with the fitbone console and teached me how to use it. I put an stetoscope in my legs and i could hear the device working when it was distracting.
I didnt felt anything in my legs at that moment but to know that i was a litttle bit taller was a really great feeling.
Then i left the Clinic and came to mics sant jordi in an adapted taxi.
My apartment is very clean . Modern and has all the facilities for a person that is doing this. The personal is really pleasant and they helped me in things that are difficult now . One example is that my movile phone fell to the floor in a place where i could not get it. Then i called them from my room to help me. This is a 24 hours care service that they have for handicaped people.
The other patients in mics came to my apartment and we have been talking about our experiences. It is great to be with more people doing the same of you.
This night i can feel the tension in my legs muscles. Its the feeling of the stretching for the lengthening. but what a great feeling ;).

Cheers KrP1

Hello, KrP1.

How is everything going? Pain-wise

Hey! . Have been having more pain for a couple of days after a hard stretching session with the personal trainer that Dr.Monegal has for our recovery.  I have been talking with him to reduce the intensity of the stretches And im doing fine right now. Im sleeping around 7 hours or more per day and dont feel much tension in my legs. The rate of lengthening is 0.82mm/day by de moment so i will be around 1cm taller at the end of the day.

Dr. Monegal does seem like a great doctor. How much would you rate the pain out of 10?

Pain after surgery . First 3 days with epidural -----> 2
Pain days 3/7 after epidural removal ---------> 3
Pain day 8 to this moment except the couple days i have said--------->2

This is when you dont move your legs that is the most of time. If you move them like doing exercises or bending you get more pain

I hit 1cm of lengthening yesterday.
Today doctor monegal came to my apartment to remove the stitches.
Im really impressed. He did a very good job with my scars and i think that them would not be noticeable after the hairs grow.

One thing i want to clarify about pain.  It seems from what i have writed that this process isnt painful but thats not well explained.
Most of the time you will be at a pain level of 2 because you are going to be in bed or sit but you will have peaks of pain when you move your legs simply because them are broken so its evident that it is going to hurt .dont expect this to be a walk in the park.

I'm glad you clarified that because judging from what you are saying, it does seem like a walk in the park. Your pain levels are low if they are just 2 and 3. I was expecting a 7 or an 8. And other sorts of problems.

What are the difficulties?

You will definitely feel  that 7 or 8 when you move your legs.
Difficulties are that im in a wheelchair and cant bend my knees more than 90 degrees so things that i could do easily before like get dress or take a shower now are difficult and needs much more time ,Pain and tension in your legs are the other difficulties.

Update

Im at 1.7cm right now. still doing 0.8mm per day. Tryed one day to do 1mm but it was definitely too much for me. After i did that i was awake almost all night because of the tension in my legs.I fell better at this rate by the moment.
I cant notice yet the difference in lenght  of my femurs. I think i should notice after 2.5/3cm of distraction but i dont really know because is difficult when you see them every day and almost every moment.

Im improving in my training sessions . I have been doing bicycle the last four days and today was my first day in the swimingpool. I have been walking in the water and it feels weird but deffinitely its a good experience to walk unnaided when you have been the last 3 weeks in a wheelchair and its a good training to get strength.

The last week my pain increased. Im at a constant 3 maybe 4 some nights. And i feel more tension in my legs making my nights harder and reducing my sleep hours.

Dr Monegal will come to do my xrays today  so i will see how all  is going.

Cheers KrP1

I feel so happy for you everytime I read your update. I m glad u made the right choice.
Keep in mind that those pain and discomfort are sooooo unreal compared to those of externals you had been considering lately. They will all be gone as soon as ur lenghtening is done too. Keep it up friend.

Yeah. Thank you very much.Definitely this is less painfull and more comfortable than having external fixators in femurs .you have been so brave doing it. Hoppe you recover early and feel happy with your new life because you deserve it beautiful doll.
This is a long and hard journey but is something i know since the begining and i was prepared for it.
I feel happy that im finally changing my height  so i dont feel depressed at any time. I feel really good imagining how my life is going to be when i get my target height and recovered  ;D

On one hand it is good, but did you also think about the patient being able to say the whole truth about the doctor and the process?

Maybe the patient will keep bad things about the doctor or complications for himself because he knows that the doctor reads in here.

The patient is dependent on the doctor and needs him. Probably the patient is more careful what he is saying about him.

Imagine the patient has a problem and thinks it is the doctors fault. Would he say that in here although he knows that the doctor would be angry with him? Would you want your doctor that has to fix complications and is responsible for your health to be angry with you? Just something to think about...

True but patients could come out with the truth after the process is over.
