Oh crap, this is my worst fear coming true. But from the diaries over here, I don't think you can really go without any pain meds, can you?
I think you got the wrong idea. He does give painkillers, just not all the time. He says all pain isn't bad and it's necessary to monitor your condition. He will prescribe them if you can't take the pain but at the same time he doesn't want the ordeal to be painless.

General anaesthesia is great!  Also, they DON'T NEED to insert a catheter in you yet.  You should ask them to give you a chance to try pee naturally (even if 1 hour) than insertion because it's more painful and deeper for men.  And one of my compadre's had a bleeding penis that freaked him out.  So you don't need that extra stress.  It's YOUR CHOICE.

Remember, your goal should be easy to reach and he's right, flexibility takes years to train, not months or weeks before a surgery.  Even me who's extensions go beyond 180 degrees past my head has been reduced to 130 degrees now.  And I can't bend my knees past 90 degrees properly.  SUCKS!  I'm working on it.

Do abs muscles, will help you control your spine later.  And cycle a lot (Guichet makes a do about 3-4x 20-30 min sessions per day).  For me, it's the best exercise ever, keep your muscles supple, elongated, warm, blood pumping, heals faster, and pain goes away!!!
He said during the surgery(I think) the catheter is useful for monitoring urine. I'll be knocked out when it goes in and I'll ask them to take it out before I wake up. That thing gives me nightmares though.
Will do, hopefully I'm able to. And good luck with it :)

Are you followups going to be once every 10 - 14 days or are they going to be more frequent, like once a week? Seeing him at least once a week for a while might be a good idea just in case there are any problems with distraction of the nail. It would suck to go 13 days with a nail that isn't extending when you think it is. I take it that he for sure isn't going to do any releases?
Yup, he said around every 10 days during lengthening and once every couple of weeks during consolidation.
No releases being done.

All the best Penguinn. This is probably the most anticipated diary in 2016. I wish you a safe and successful surgery and very speedy recovery :)

I'm a little jealous of you because you're starting off shorter than me but would end up taller than me (as per your goal). Lol, But I still want you to achieve your goal and be happy.

Thanks again for sharing your experience with us through this diary.

Lol, I'm yet to update my diary but stopped my lengthening at 5 cm due to series of complications. Nothing to worry though, I'm doing better now and I'm so glad I stopped. Good news is that we'll end up at same height, yay!! :)

Yeah, you couldn't have said it better. I did this surgery to not be absurdly short, but not to become a tall sxxy super model.

Fujitora and Penguinn,
As long as a person is not absurdly short, there's no problem.
A girl, or anyone for that matter will consider your height an absence of an advantage rather than a disadvantage.

You guys would have both removed your disadvantage. After you do this, your success with women or at work will be dependent purely on other factors, like your personality, money and dressing/grooming sense.

And my theory is...anyone who is strong enough to do LL.....is strong enough to change the other factors in their life as well.

Yes, your new height will be a huge improvement almost giving an advantage. The topic of women is secondary, you have to think about transcendental things.

It's not just women or work, it's just part of what makes you you. And improving a big part of that is great regardless of whether instagram whores want you or not, imo.

Some people just do it to feel better about themselves, especially when they tend to stick out in their environment.

It's not just women or work, it's just part of what makes you you. And improving a big part of that is great regardless of whether instagram whores want you or not, imo.

Hey Penguinn,

how is it going?

what arrangements have you made at home for your post-op state? is it wheelchair accessible? what about using the bathroom? what arrangements have you made for PT?

I get a strange feeling of satisfaction on this forum even when "other" people's height dysphoria is being cured. :)

I'll be staying with my granny, whose house is 10 minutes away from my own cause it has an elevator. I won't be alone and will have help. Set the TV, PS4 and stuff there. I don't know what exactly you mean by wheelchair accessible. I'll be at Parihar's for around 5 days post-op where they'll teach me to use the walker. That's how I'll go to the washroom. I'm thinking of buying an EMS muscle stimulator that Unicorn mentioned in her diary.

Besides that, I'm nervous but not nearly as nervous as I thought I would be.

ok good. I thought you might have to use a wheelchair. Partial weight bearing can make your upper body really sore.

what about physio therapy? is there something like an isokinetic center nearby?

There's a physiotherapy section on the bottom floor of the hospital.

Yeah physio will come to your room while you're in the hospital and if you're close enough to the hospital for the physio they'll do home visits for a cost (it was $17 per session for me). You can also get free physio at the hospital in their section after your checkup and x ray.

How often does the physiotherapist have to visit you? I know you have to do the exercises everyday, but how often does the physio actually have to be there with you?

Best of luck.  It's mid September now.  I'm wondering if you have done your surgery yet.  Can't wait for your update.

Do people normally shave their thighs before the surgery? I did mine cause I didn't want anyone there doing it.

Doing it at home is probably a good move. If someone in the hospital does it and you end up with red and burning skin because he was too rough or didn't use cream or whatever, that's going to be an added annoyance.
You're going to have enough discomfort already, so avoid any new ones as far as possible.

19th September 2016
At the hospital right now, staying the night. The room is just like Kilo's diary showed, meh. I don't care about this trivial stuff though. A nurse just took my blood pressure. It's 9pm and the surgery is scheduled for 10am tomorrow. Dr. Parihar actually said I could eat right now, just as long as I didn't eat tomorrow morning.(though I won't cause I'm getting anxious and I might throw it up)

If you think I go into too much detail, let me know. Just that a lot of people said they'd closely follow the diary and it'd help some for their future LL. Post-op, I will update whenever I can be bothered.
