Why not go for 7.5/8cm? Might as well get the extra length since you’re going to the best doctor in the world and spending 100k+

Hello Activatedx,
I only do 6.5cm this time because it will recover faster and will have minimum impact on my body.I plan to do my Tibias after two years around 5cm.So that I can have a good proportion.

Today I got surprised when I sent a mail to Dr. Paley saying that I am excited, however, I am also a bit nervous. An hour after he replied, "Don’t worry. All will be OK."

This made me rest assured that I am in good hand.

Seconded.

Or at least don't rule it out from the beginning! If you feel fine after 6.5 cm I absolutely don't see a reason to not push for the extra cm. The extra time it takes to recover from that extra cm is negligible compared to the total time it will take to recover from the first 6.5 cm. I also don't believe there's any academic literature showing a (long term) correlation between 6.5 cm vs 7.5 cm and athletic ability, post-lengthening. Lengthening tibias 2 years later is far more likely to limit one's athletic ability than going for the extra 1 cm in femurs in round 1.

Just my 2 cents, of course. I just would keep an open mind about it before you start the lengthening process.

Today I went to the hospital for the pre-surgery admission testing and pre-operation clearance with Dr. Paley. I was told by the nurse that I cannot eat after 12 am and stop drinking 2 hours before the scheduled surgery time. Once again, Dr. Paley mentioned that everything is going to be fine and there is nothing to worry about.

My surgery is scheduled at 8am tomorrow morning and I have to arrive there 2 hours before.

I know everything will be fine but I am still a bit nervous, hope everything will go well.

Hi just do it

I did that in the same place. You should be fine.  Don't worry and be relaxed.
Good luck!

Surgery isn’t a hard  process, I had my appendix removed as a kid once they give you aenesthia you black out and wake up and feel zero pain. Even when you wake up you won’t feel pain because you’ll still feel effects of aenesthia . You’ll be fine kiddo and God bless

Thousands of dwarfs or people with unequal leg length go through this surgery every year, you’ll be ok my friend just pray
