My surgery was exactly a year ago. I lengthened 6cm in 2,5 months and went from 173 to 179cm (at the age of 45).
The difference is very noticeable, for me and for others.
My left leg returned to normal with the speed of light. My right leg is a different story. To be honest I think it will never completely recover from LL. I had a terrible accident in the mountains 8 years ago. I crushed on a cliff which ripped my patella tendon apart and smashed the patella itself. Two hours later i receaved an emergency op in a good hospital in Austria. The surgeon did a good job and sewed the patella tendon together.
As a result of this accident my flexibility in the right leg was severely reduced and only came back to around 80% after 7 years. I did not care about the missing 20% so I never really stretched and worked on it. i was happy that I was able to do any sport I liked again after some months (the surgeon who had operated me 8 years ago visited me the day after the op and told me that I could never snowboard or ski or play soccer again.
What an idiot to say something like this, I did it all again and I am still doing it...).
As a result of this accident not only my flexibility in the right leg was reduced, I also had shortened muscles and tendons (well, it's my own theory...).
Still, I decided to to LL , because I wanted to grow taller no matter what. I had only heard about this way of growing taller some weeks before I actually did it, so I really jumped into it with no idea what to expect. I had a very simple and naive belief that all would work out good.
I did not know this website and even if I had known about it I would not have entered it, being afraid of reading things that would cause me to hesitate.
So. Let's get back to the right leg. It's difficult to explain. I have strength and power in it but somehow this leg is under tension. Difficult to locate but somewhere between my butt and the IT-band. Additionally i might have some problem with my right hip. I don't know because I am not seeing any doctor. Things are okay the way they are. I don't wanna waste my life and time with running to doctors as long as I can live pretty good with the restrictions in the right leg.
I have lost speed and explosiveness but that's ok, too.
I can play tennis again, I already skied and snowboarded months ago and I could play soccer again.
I won't do it, though, because my big advantage has always been my speed and explosiveness and now it would not be fun any more. Anyway, it's better nit to play soccer at the age of 45. You are just gonna hurt yourself...
I don't regret LL.
I had to do it. Had I not done it I would be thinking of this missed oportunity for the rest of my life.
It's amazing how much a difference 6cm make. There are tons of 180-ish guys among all the people I meet and know and now I am just like them -normal-.
I need to tell you something unusual that happened to me some weeks ago.
I was in a crazy club in Berlin and saw this girl dancing with her friends. She was 175cm (she told me later) and she was beautiful, in fact the looked like a model. Models normally are not may type but she was awesome. I noticed she was flirting with me and could not believe my luck. I had two more shots with my friends and went for it, although I knew she was at least 20 years younger than me. But who cares, obviously she did not care so why should I?
We danced all night and started kissing in the early morning, it was one of the most magical nights of my life.
She was in Berlin just for the weekend, so I met her again the following night in another club and we repeated the whole thing. Then we kissed good-bye thinking we would never meet again.
But after a few days it was her who contacted me again, saying she can't forget me and she wants to see me again. It was very difficult to arrange because she does not have any spare time and lives far away from me.
But we managed. One afternoon both of us drove our cars towards each other (300km each) and we took a hotel room. I don't wanna go into detail on this night. It was wonderful, that should be enough.
She is actually 21 years old, 25 years younger than me. Impossible to even think this could last...
By the way, she actually is a model. Her mother is from asia, father from France.
She told me that -when she saw me in the club- she wanted to "have" me. So, actually she picked me...
I did not have any woman for many months before this happened to me.
