Knee pain kinda gone?!
« Reply #94 on: April 19, 2019, 05:40:08 AM »

Knee pain indeed seems kinda gone. Will see for sure next week when I go back to the gym.

Mini-update for Wednesday, April 17, 2019: I did 10 Smith squats[url=http://with 115 lbs today. The Smith machine helped a lot with balance. I could also jog for 2 minutes. Had to slow down to walking because of impact pain, in the left knee and right quad. Cardio-wise, I could have gone longer. On an [url=https://exrx.net/Aerobic/Exercises/EllipticalCrossTrainer]elliptical machine] with 115 lbs today. The Smith machine helped a lot with balance. I could also jog for 2 minutes. Had to slow down to walking because of impact pain, in the left knee and right quad. Cardio-wise, I could have gone longer. On an [url=https://exrx.net/Aerobic/Exercises/EllipticalCrossTrainer]elliptical machine I can go for 10-20 minutes, because it absorbs the landing impact.

Side note: when I walk with weight (e.g. a backpack) or when I exercise, I'm sweating WAY, WAY more than before the surgery. Nobody I know sweats that badly. Not sure why that is. I did lose some conditioning by being in a wheelchair for months, and I used to sweat before, but not to this level.

One of the last patients to use the PRECICE 2.2 nail. I met the first STRYDE patient and I strongly recommend the new STRYDE nail instead.

HI OverrideyourGenetics, Ive seen that you've apparently used Internal Precice 2 on both Femurs & Tibias....
Now please let me ask you:
1) How did each one feel, which one felt more unbearable & harder pain ; Tibias   or   Femurs?
2) Knee Pain, regarding to this do you feel that internal tibia= knee pain permenantly  or does femurs has that risk too?
3) Internal infection in femurs ? what really are the dangers and troubles of having a nail inside your bone canal did you take multiple antibiotics throughout your journey ?
4) Achieveing the maximum goals (8cm) in Femurs....for someone like me i am a girl and financially not rich so i get one shot at this and i am starting at 152 cm so getting the full and i mean FULL 8 cm is the only option....is that possible or are there other dimensions to the issue ?

*Thank you in advance & sorry for too many questions but there arent much patients that have been through both .

Question from 152cm girl

Hi Kenda,

You say you're not financially rich. That's OK. I've also noticed that your post contained quite a few spelling errors. If you were typing from a phone or something like that, please disregard what I'm about to say. But if the only reasons for those errors were insufficient practice with English or not using the browser's English spell checker, I have good news for you! We live in a digital economy. Wherever you're from, you can clearly access the Internet. You can work online, for far richer employers than in your home country. Even if you're from a developed country, by working online you can access employers and capital you'd have a very hard time otherwise.

But so can everyone else. There is competition. There are three main ways to differentiate when doing work online:
  • Doing it fast
  • Doing it cheap
  • Doing it well

Doing it well involves most of the time writing well. Even if you do graphic design. I've hired people online through sites like Odesk, and if someone writes poorly, I won't work with them any more. That's because I care about quality, and I'm willing to pay for it.

So my advice to you is, consider investing in mastering English. It's the world's universal language, and that's not going to change. Chinese won't take over (sorry).

Moreover, all modern browsers have a spell checker built-in. Set it to English. Set your computer's language to English, your phone's, and so on. I'm sorry, but no other language correlates better with wealth.

I'm not sure what you hope to achieve by being 160cm female instead of 152. You'll still be in the bottom 25% of females by height (unless you plan to stay in a country with lower average height), and that's if *everything* goes well. Learning English has no risk of screwing you up forever.

Now to answer your questions:

1. Tibias vs. femur pain is irrelevant if you can only do one and want 8cm. Tibias can only be lengthened safely by 5cm. That said, tibia pain was slightly worse, fortunately.

2. No risk of knee pain with femurs, because the nail goes in through the hip.

3. No infection risk, unless you do the surgery in a cheapo hospital.

4. Yes, the other dimension is to invest in yourself and borrow money to do quadrilateral lengthening, then pay back the loans over time. See my article https://overrideyourgenetics.com/cost/.

Any updates for us OYG?

Yes. I'm taking the rods out next week. Ask me anything.

It’s not my place to answer on behalf of Kenda,

But I will try to. As you can see on the scale following the link you have shared, every 5 cm on a height of a woman, puts her in a next height category or even further, closer to average. In other worlds, the same 8 cm height increase makes a bigger difference for a female vs male.

You can also see how short guys on this forum, try and do get third surgery done, even if they don’t become average height. They just want to be taller then what they were in the past. And I get it. They compete more against themselves, not as much against other guys.

So, I think your question is unfair to Kenda.

Pay no mind to OYGs comment. Seems like after LL this guy became a real douche bag. Just read a few of his past posts.

To Racurz: Thanks for the well wishes and I don't mean to sound mean, but you may get more out of life with much less of an investment by improving your reading comprehension and English writing skills.

And what he wrote in one of his updates:
It's funny that even though I know what it's like to be short, I can't help but feel somehow "superior" over shorter people at work (unless they're in a higher role than me, but I haven't actually met a manager shorter than me yet). So yes, the heightism bias turns out to be real in me, a rational software engineer, in one of the most "rational" of all places (Silicon Valley), who also used to be short!

When I meet a peer who's shorter, I have a tiny bit of trouble taking him seriously, unless I'm already impressed by his reputation.

Clearly he likes making himself feel better by putting people down, or at least trying....

I really dont care about this lil homie.
But he better be useful & say something useful or else, one will put him in his place in the comments.
But if he gonna talk about english courses when basically my original question had Purfect eng , then he has some inner problems with himself lol.

he seems to have an ego about himself now and perceives himself better than those shorter than him.
I sense some narcissistic tendencies. Hopefully it is not true, I enjoyed reading the diary though.
