Thanks, Ozy & mtall. I've chosen spinal anesthesia + sedative. General involves a tube being put into your lungs and that's a bit excessive. The catheter will be in me for a while but it has zylocen jelly(or something) which is an anesthetic so it shouldn't hurt much. Just met with the physician who put me at ease.
Basically
Day 1: Surgery, ICU, room
Day 2: Catheter comes out, PT, walking
Day 3: IV comes out
Painkillers given throughout. Or so the physician says.

all the best Penguinn. Remember, last day being 5'2".

are the people being judgemental because you're doing a cosmetic thing? anyway it doesn't matter. One has to live per his expectations, not someone else's.

The nurse seemed mildly amused but mostly nonchalant. The physician wasn't judgemental at all. One assistant surgeon whose name I forget was friendly and reassuring.

Fun fact, I'm in Room 23, the room Kilo got.

Good to know that hospital staff is not putting more stress at you. I don't even imagine the flame i would get from my orthopedic doctor that i would even consider getting this surgery for cosmetic reasons lol.

Keep tight, keeping fingers crossed for you.

Yeah, my second endocrinologist(not related to this place) kept telling me I was being dumb for considering LL and whatnot. He was 6'3...

whatever the perceptions of people are, all a patient would want is to be reassured before surgery. Not to be made to suspect his own sanity.

My second endo wasn't in this (Mangal Anand)hospital. It was another place, months ago and I just ignored it. People here are friendly so I'm glad, plus at least one of my parents will keep visiting cause I live half an hour away. Despite some fear and anxiety not once have I thought I shouldn't do this and no one could convince me of that either.

Dude - when I was on the surgery bed, right after the surgery was over, one of the guy from surgeon team made fun of me saying - "Choti biwi dhoond lo, khush raho, kyun karvaya ye sab", which means "Go find a short wife and be happy with her, why are you doing all this". I know you're strong willed to ignore such people, so just stay calm and excited :)... Good luck :)

Most of the nurses at Mangal Anand were really kind, and some were really cute too. Most just seemed confused as to what I was really there for since it's rare anybody has a frame on both legs. Btw, have you met Sister Molly yet? Wonder if she's still there.

One thing I miss is the tea they serve at the hospital in the mornings. I don't know what they put in it but it's delicious.

I hate people which talk like that. Tons of people do that to improve their self esteem, fight bdd etc.

And funny thing to be honest, when i was like 15-16 yo one of the girls from my class(she was quite pretty) had a crush on me and she was 2 inches taller than me.

I've met one nurse but I don't know if that's her.
Also I wanted to PM you this but I reached my limit...when they put spinal anesthesia in you, does the sedative come through there or the IV? Fujitora says it makes you drowsy/lucid dreaming state which I don't mind at all, long as I'm not wide awake. I was confused about that reading your diary.

I think it's from the spinal anesthesia but I'm not sure. I didn't sleep at all the night before due to anxiety so I was really tired by the time I got in there and knocked out really fast. Plus Dr Parihar started playing classical music before the surgery started and I think it made me want to sleep even faster.

20th September(Day 1)
I was taken in at 10am. The IV wasn't bad and the anesthetist was a friendly guy who put me at ease. Spinal anesthesia isn't fun at all. Turns out during my surgey, they had to give general as well because my surgery was prolonged. One Precice 2 nail did not respond to its machine and another had to be put in its place.
I woke up at 8pm or so(yup that long, Parihar is a total perfectionist) in the ICU. The catheter does not hurt at all. Yay. Throughout the night, one of two nurses helped give me injections(one for when I felt like vomiting and one antibiotic) in the IV. Then I actually did vomit..felt good.

Day 2(ongoing)
Physiotherapists showed me the ropes in the morning. It's not that bad. Followed by a brief meeting from the man itself. My pain is at a 5 or so but I still have not tried walking. Will be moved to the room tomorrow. Had 3 glasses of coconut water and my blood taken.

The hospital is meh but the staff is great.

Day 3
Big difference between yesterday and today. Yesterday I was plugged to a ton of sh*t, uncomfortable and regretting LL. Today they took out the epidural, IV, catheter and changed the heavy dressings to light ones. I am now the master of my own bladder..FU catheter. I was changed into shorts and a tee. Will eat McDonalds, be taken for X Rays(on a stretcher) and then put in Room 23 where I first checked in Monday night. I'm a bit afraid of eating though I was told to eat normally from yesterday cause I really don't wanna poop like this.

The Precice nails/my thighs itself did not hurt that bad. Yesterday I'd say the pain in my legs while sitting still was 5/10. Today it is a 2-3 that jumps to 5 rarely. Very tolerable while sitting.. kind of like your legs after working out at the gym after a long time.

PT is a bit stressful but I actually like it. It's not excrutiating(so far) and does help. 2-3 times a day. Parihar says I'll be here for like 4 more days(he said 5 days yesterday so I assume.) In his words "This isn't America. I will let you go when I feel you are ready."

I respect the hell out of you externals patients. The hell you must have been through.

Oh, and lengthening only starts Day 10. :/

So, did you have the tube inside you since you were given general as well?
And why only Day 10?

@mtall Yeah. My throat was sore when I woke thanks to general anesthesia. Apparently the sedative wasn't enough and I kept asking to be put to sleep.
