No, even if I don't walk with crutches I have them on my hands, because I'm afraid people might bump into me. Walking for long periods of times is annoying, because my balance is off and also I'm much slower than normally. Also I use the crutches for sitting down :standing up/ going up or down stairs

Has anyone (post LL) ever experienced that your hips go up when you lift yours legs? like unstable.

Do you mean walking like a penguin, with you body shifting to left and right?
I think that is normal.
I had it and it has become better, so that by now I walk normally.
One thing that helped is to pay attention to use the feet, meaning put the back of the foot firmly on the ground, and then use your front feet to push yourself off the ground.

Hi helloworld. I used to have that for a week the penguin but now my shoulder are fixed and only the hips and my lower body shift. It's only been 2 weeks after I stopped lengthening however, as I'm leaving Milano and won't see the doctor again, I'm getting anxious to recover as much as possible.

How long did it take you to solve it? (yes I also noticed that I think it's because when you use the front feet you activate your glutes to stabilize your hips).

I am not sure if I got the same.
I will make a video of me walking in the style post limb lengthening and normal style and you can see.

Every week my walking got better.
However, my running is still strange and slow. This is despite the fact that my bike is normal and fast.

Thanks, approximately how many weeks did it took you from finish lenghtening to regain normal walking? For me running is out of the question as I am not yet fully fused!

It's been almost 2 weeks since finishing lenghtening. I regained my ability to walk long distances (I can walk more than 1 hour without stopping), but I'm still slower than most people. Yes Kaiser, they do because of my little sway on my hips and also because I always wear my crutches for stairs and so that people know that I'm not normal.

Hello, Does Dr Guichet allow you to walk without crutches on flat surfaces after finishing lengthening and are you managing this?

Sure, even before the lenghtening he allows you to walk without crutches but it depends on your bone formation and intended gain.

That is great!
Time for reflection: Was it the good choice to do LL? Would you do it again?

I've been walking a lot of hours without crutches and it's good so I don't think I'm risking a lot by only walking. I use crutches for stairs and sitting/standing even if Dr Guichet allowed me to be totally free of crutches.  I'll do so at least for a month or 2.

I don't know yet helloworld I'm still slower than almost everyone when walking and my hips sway a little. I'm hopeful because it's only been 2 weeks since stopping lenghtening. When I get to where you are now, ask me again haha

I have been improving every week since finishing lengthening, so I guess you will as well, and probablay even faster as you are training much more.
So if everything goes well, then I am pretty sure, you will be happy you did it.

Not at all Datum, I have 6 LL friends that lengthened a few weeks before me and they all got good results and about same recovery as me (some faster some slower). However, what I'm truly lucky about is that I had much less pain in comparison to them.
