Here comes an interesting detail: she told me looks did not matter that much for her (with men).
The only thing, she admitted, that really mattered to her: the man must be taller than her.
I really had to smile deep inside because this meant that I could never have had this beautiful girl had I not gotten my LL.
Of course, I did not tell her...  ;)

So, for this love affair alone, LL was worth it.  ;D

By the way, I do not only like her looks but also her personality.  :)

Im so glad for you OBG, you rock  8). Personnality ? What's that word ? I don't understand  ::). I hope the little OBG's are on their way  ::)

Hello OldiebutGoldie. It's great that You recovered well after such a huge operation. You're one of my idols here!

I have some questions to You.

1. As far as I understood You have broken or bended Your nail. Why that happend? Did You do some exercises that are not recommended, or did You began to "live normaly" to early?

2. What type of nail were You using? Was it Betzbone? Do You think Dr. Betz have some better nail nowadays? Which type is "hardest" in Your opinion?

3. How do You rank Dr. Betz? Is he a type of doctor that tells You the whole truth, or do You have to ask about everything, and care for yourself, or You will be forgotten?

4. What is the biggest gain possible with Dr. Betz? I've read on "the old forum" his interview, where he claims that it's 13,5cm in femurs.

5. Do You have some bad experiences with "the old forum"?

If You think any of the answers for my questions should not be written publicly, please write it in PM.

 Yours,
Jan

Hi OBG,

Great story!  8)

Now that it's been a whole year, any plans on getting those rods out? Do you feel ready? I was wondering, when were you back to normal life/walking/functioning/going out and all (sports aside, I know it should take more time)?

Thanks a lot :)

Hi OBG. Congratulations on your truly inspirational journey! Do you think it would be possible to post before and after proportions photos of yourself for reference to others interested in undergoing the same procedure? It would be tremendously appreciated. Thank you.

Answers:
1. Wrong. Broken screws, not nails. Probably too much walking and other activity. Did not do anything stupid, like lifting heavy etc...
2. Betzbone. Don´t know anything about new or other nails...
3. I think he is an excellent surgeon. He is also extremely busy. He will do the best he can in order to assist when problems occur, but don´t expect him to always be around. He is a human being and cannot be everywhere at the same time.
One critical remark: Dr. Betz might be too overly optimistic in general. He truely believes he can perform surgery on anyone and will always have a good result. But there are patients who should not get this surgery (e.g., if you are mentally unstable).
It`s good to be super-optimistic but it is not bad to be realistic, too...
4. Don´t know. I personally know guys who have done 10cm and they seem to be ok. Depends on your body and how much your body will take...
5. Well, a little. don´t wanna go into detail here.

I think I could take them out now but I wanna wait until autumn because it´s tennis season now and I don´t wanna have any interruption.

getting back to normal is a slow, gradual process. But I would say I went "back to normal" weeks after surgery, because I went home, continued with my work, went out etc.

Hi OBG
Can you please tell me how much did it cost including all the extras and if possible break up of the costs.
Your answer will help me plan how much I should have in my pocket/bank before I buy plane ticket.
Thanks

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-.

Hey man, I congratulate you to your success and everything, but I think what you'ved said there is not OK. People who are a little shorter are just as normal as tall people.

Sorry, I meant normal height.
I am now 179 and feel like I have a normal height in a crowd.
Before, at 173cm, I always felt like the shortest guy in the room.
In fact I was the shortest in my football team, the shortest at university, the shortest at every party, every wedding, and so on and so on...

You must've had really short femurs before the surgery to have such excellent-looking proportions afterwards.

You were also quite wise not to lengthen too much just for the sake of gaining as much height as possible.

OldieButGoldie, thank you for your detailed diary of your wonderful journey!

In the 49.000 euros, what is comprised? I mean, is this the bare cost of both femurs' operation?... and the hospital stay and suff are these to be paid with more money? Or even some PT sessions?

Cheers.

OldieButGoldie,

how are you?

lately I've been reading some diaries in here and on the **T forum (your entire diary and that of MasterHY's and Hanna's): so I know a lot more about the costs with dr Betz now :).

I just sent him an e-mail about my want-to-be operation for the upcoming December at info@betzinstitute.com: is this the correct actual e-mail address to send our requests?

Do you know about your friend's MasterHY outcome? He left his diary unfinished...maybe did he undergo something not good?

Cheers, Oldie!

OBG, seriously, I wrote it on the old forum and will repeat it here; you're one helluva handsome guy.

Now we all wish you to find someone to spend your life with, get married, and live a happier life  :)


I feel like a lot of us guys have great facial aesthetics...we just need/needed the height to be the "full package." :D

And OBG - your story is absolutely awesome and inspiring. I really appreciate that you didn't get caught up in the numbers game. I love skiing myself, so I'm probably not gonna do more than 6.5cm on my femurs in order to (hopefully) have a great recovery like you.

No, my femurs were not short compared to the rest of my body. Totally normal...
But 5,8 or 6,0 cm just don´t show so much...

Saw your running video at the other site, and it looks very impressive. Im assuming you where faster before the surgery but that speed was still very impressive.

grats on the great progress and you will most likely recover a lot more still.

Finally able to post the last running/sprinting video. It was taken during this summer, around one year and 3 months after surgery.

OBG you are in excellent shape not just for a guy in his 40s but in general.

Do you have any particular supplements you take?
