im totally new to this diary but i saw an earlier x-ray of yours: https://imgur.com/a/AJzCo (frontview, third pic) where the bones were misaligned.


and in the last x-ray the just consolidated like that.
do you know if you're going to have any problem with the hips or knees down the road becuase of this?

as for ur running video it looks really good. much better than the other i have seen on this forum. i suppose the shorter u distract the better recovery

It's indeed misaligned as with other Monegal patients (both tibia and femur). This can cause arthritis and other problems in the future. If the misalignment is severe you can also appreciate it from the outside

Just checking in to say that everything is going well.
Have not been thinking about limb lengthening. The new height is totally normal, could not imagine being shorter than I am now.

Just have one knee make a sound when I bend it.
Also, flexibility is almost same but not 100%.
Running normally.
7 kg heavier than before but not more fat. So I assume the weight of the additional bone and muscle.

Hope you're telling the truth about your case but I know your doctor had many bad cases, serious problems

Good luck

Just checked the forum after almost a year.
It has been almost 4 years since I was operated.
Time flies.
Was reading OldiebutGoldie post about his experience, saying that you do not have to have an operation done to feel better and that he would not do it again.

For me, even thought I was one of the tallest patients, I would do it again, because the benefits clearly outweigh the costs.
Of course, now, though I would still like to be taller, I would not do an operation for it, because now I have no more burning desire to be taller. So it is like with money, those people with a lot of money will tell you that money cannot buy happiness, but in fact if you have no money, you will be considerably unhappier. Likewise those who are tall will tell you that you will not be happier due to height, but they forget how it feels if you are short.

I am more confident meeting new people in business and especially when it comes to the oposite gender.
I had no complications and do an average of 14,000 steps per day, and run fast.

Was it a good choice: YES!
