How long have you been stuck at 7.3 and why?

I lengthened 2mm more. The machine reached its set limit and had to be adjusted to allow more lengthening.

Yes, but how many days gap was there?
And so, now are you officially in the consolidation phase?

I guess a little over 10 days. I didn't lengthen for 8 days so I could fix my knee, then I lengthened for a day and the machine had an error so it took more time.

Yes, officially no more lengthening. ;D Callus has improved a bit but I've been lazy with standing and walking.

That's a strange concern, lol. I didn't brush for 2 days after my surgery. As soon as you can sit up, you should be able to.

Hey, penguin do you have a timeline yet of how long the consolidation period will last?

Nope. I should know more after the next X-Ray but I'm being lazy with standing; it'll probably take more time.

Hello penguin, congratulations on your lengthening , you're very lucky ,
I asked doctor parihar about precise 2 but they say rates are 28 lakh for machine and 10 lakh extra for the operation ..how is that possible ?
How much exactly did they charge you ?

28? That's weird. They don't control the price of the nails; you sort that with the local distributor. Parihar & co. only control the surgery price which is about 10L.

Far as I remember it was 10 lakh for the surgery, 23 lakh for the nails and 2-3 lakh deposit for the Precice machine.

What's with the bone marrow thing with precise 2?
Will this effect on a bad side ?

Hey Penguinn. Can you give us an update on how your range of motions are? How's the consolidation phase? Any pain? What's your diet like?

My flexibility and muscle strength is pretty good. When I do the exercise in this picture: http://round-earth.com/images/Knee-Vastus-Test.jpg my ankle is an inch or so away from touching my butt. I think that's how much normal people can do too, except they can pull it back to touch the butt with their arms and I can't until consolidation.

The only pain I have is a slight dull pain in my left achilles sometimes. The area was very tender and painful for 10 days+ a while ago, a sudden jerk would send a current through me. It stayed the same and suddenly reduced drastically. Now it's not a hindrance.

I've been eating quite a lot of junk food for a long time. Pop corn, some coke, a packet of Lays now and then, a pizza now and then. I'm still slacking with standing. I was told to walk with the walker a little and stand thrice a day, I've barely walked and I stand once or twice a day. In a week or so I'll go to Mangal Anand and see how my callus is coming. If it's very disappointing, I'll up my game.

Are you on any pain meds?
And do you have any indication on when you'll be able to walk unassisted?

Hello pennguin, if you can, answer me
If you had a job where you had to spend most of the time sitting in front of the computer and sometimes needed to get up to get documents you had to climb some stairs, would you be able to do those activities right now?

No and no.

Sitting in front of the computer, yes.
Getting up now and then to get stuff, no. Both my hands are occupied with the walker when I'm standing or walking.
Climb stairs, hell no. Well maybe you could with crutches and it'd take forever, but I wouldn't try it in this situation.

Ok bro, please be careful while walking around.. there are one too many instances of people falling down while consolidating and then taking months to heal.
It's been a smooth journey for you till now and I hope you're jumping about the house on a skipping rope a few months from now! :P

I will. :) In fact after Dr says I can walk(and he's already careful so he'll give me a later date), I'll wait a few weeks. I can't wait to walk and be fully independant but I'm taking zero chances.

hi i just wanna say congrats for taking this operation and being the first to undertake precise 2 under dr parihar. i was researching precise 2 and was excited to come across your diary as you are active and presently undertaking this (most of the diaries i was coming across were all old or archived)

i am very very happy for you and i am eager as to follow your progress as you grow esp since you are doing 6+cm.


i am in the middle of saving up for myself as well
im looking to have mines started by the summer of this year being accompanied with a very close friend

i have been reading thru so i have very minimal questions (i try to stay as well informed as i can) but i just wanted to ask is it possible to get dr parihar's email via private message?  it would be much appreciated, thank you

Update: 4 months post-op
I went to Mangal Anand a week ago and everything's fine except the callus formation is really slow and improvement is minimal. I got very lazy with standing/walking in January so it was expected. I've upped it to an hour a day from a measly 10 minutes a day(yes, I actually did that..) because if I went down that path it'd lead to serious complications. I literally almost wasted a month. Even with doing a lot of standing and walking, I'll probably get my fully formed bone and be cleared to walk unaided later than usual.

My right leg, muscle wise is awesome and my left is decent with some lag while doing exercises. Throughout this procedure I've had one good leg and one bad leg and they switch randomly. I wouldn't call my left a "bad leg" but the right is definitely better.

I'll update whenever. Life is uneventful as of now.

What is the maximum weight you should have before surgery??
I don't think there is a fixed weight since bigger nails are used for taller people/people with bigger bones and they can take more weight. You'd have to ask your doctor at the time of surgery.

Quick update: I asked Dr. Divya what the extra little scars on my thigh were and turns out my IT bands were released during the surgery. I'll include all this when I write a summary of my experience eventually.

Penguin, you said you paid 33 lakhs, but Dr Parihar puts 28 lakhs as the price.

Update: 4.5 months post-op
So as you guys know, I'd gotten very lazy with weight bearing(walking) until Jan end and my callus was poor. I was pretty worried I'd need bone marrow injections or a graft, but I've upped the walking and thankfully, my callus has improved in 2 weeks. I wasted a lot of weeks that I should've spent walking 30+ minutes a day. Don't be like me. I'll be at least 6 months post op(March 20) before I walk unaided, which I'm ok with because of how well things have gone but you might not be. I'll post the X-Rays when I get them.

Penguin, you said you paid 33 lakhs, but Dr Parihar puts 28 lakhs as the price.
That's what I had also calculated the price to be. I think importing the Precice nails includes a sh*t ton of tax.

What do you exactly mean by 'walk unaided'? Does this mean doing regular daily chores/activities with no crutches or help, such as going to a store or work/office, walk up and down stairs...like a normal person? If the answer is no or not so simple, then can you please explain various stages, precautions and average durations between where you are now to where you will be able to walk like a normal person? Note: I'm not asking about strenuous physical activities such as weight lifting, etc.
thanks for your diary and sharing useful information!
