Hey

Life is good despite the lock down.  My walk are back to 💯 normal and I’m able to run lightly but the mechanics are still off.  I guess my recovery is similar to Movies.
This is the best decision I ever made in my life.  Wished I would have done it sooner. 
Planning to get my rods out in Jan or Feb of next year and maybe heading back to Dr. G to do my Tibias in August, but it’s really depends on my living situation at that time.

Hey Azman! If you could share how did you get your insurance to cover the rod removal surgery that'll be really nice.

Basically I call member service and informed them about my situation, I have Kaiser.  They told me that the rods needed to be remove by 2years and it’s cover under my plan since it’s not considered an aesthetic surgery.  My primary doctor ordered the X-ray and referred me to the orthopedic surgeon that I wanted to see.  I got the name of the orthopedic surgeon that did this kind of surgery from a member on this forum.  The only cost I need to pay is my co-pay. 
Hope this help.

Sorry I think you are referring to my friend Planning, he has an IG set up and if you look at one of his video I’m in it when we were both at the hospital.   We are both doing great, just very busy with PT, lengthening 4x per day, and etc.   You can reply to his IG or on his diary.

Can you help with the link to your friend's diary or his IG

I used the app eFresh for groceries and eFood for restaurants, both deliver to you and can load a credit card so you won’t have to deal with euros.  For taxi, I used the app call Beat.
If you are by yourself and didn’t hire anyone to help you around after you get discharge, I would suggest you load up on groceries, like food that don’t need much work or energy to prepare.  The first week after discharge can be challenging without any help but very doable.

Hi Azman

How are things going for you now?

Any new updates?

I’ve also been reading through this post and wasn’t able to find your starting height.

What’s the best thing about your new height too?

Things are good.  Just waiting till this Coronavirus thing die down.  We’re still in shelter in place.  I’m physically able to run but was advised to just jog and no jumping till I remove the rod, hopefully at the beginning of 2021. Best thing about my new height is that I’m no longer the shortest person in my group of friends and I no longer have to think about all the what if’s and worries about CLL.  Nowadays I laughed from time to time about all the stupid stuff I tried to gain temporary 2cm.  Surprisingly, I actually met some really cool people during my lengthening which I still keep in touch with.

Is Giotikas in Greece cheaper than Downey in Spain?

What are the other pros/cons of the two?

Sorry but I have no information on Dr. Downey besides what already on this forum, since Dr. Downey was not on my list of doctors when I did my research before my CLL.  If I ever decide to do my tibias, Dr. G will be my first choice then Dr. L then Dr. P then Dr. R.  The pro/con of Dr. G for me was pro: it’s was a successful surgery and lengthening.  Con: The plane ride back to the US was painful especially if you have a window seat compare an aisle seat like I did.

Didn't see this one and most of other post.  Well it all come down to me being tired of being short and was finally able to do something about it with permanent results. Pain can be temporary but suffering can be avoided.  Life before was an inner problem, but that didn't let it stop me from achieving what I wanted in life.  After, is an uplift in life and a sense of fulfilment.  And yes I am an Ass Man = Azman.

The real question is, will you be unfulfilled if you don't do CLL and have it stuck on your mind every day, every hour or worst every minute of your day?

Thank you Glutius Maximus Man.

Jokes aside, yeah I definitely have thought about that. I thought about it I never found this forum it discovered precice nail internal. I think this discoveries just made me waste my time in life and got me going in terms of dealing with my height insecurity changed from: "I'll try to love myself and improve" to "I'll wait for the surgery instead of self-help or therapy"

In a way it is a double edge sword. I have wasted so much time here and now essentially think about my height on a 24/7 basis, something that wasn't the case before. It definitely propagated my height neurosis longer. Maybe not stronger, but definitely longer.

But at the time same time, I can say with certainty I will get this neurosis cured, because such a surgery exists. I could not say this with certainty before I discovered LL internal method. I do not know if I will just enjoy being an adult while feeling like a kid. A GHkid.

But now I have hope. It's almost guaranteed I'll get this though, and that's a bad thing to be hooked on or fixated on. But at least I am starting to get closure.

This dilemna would not exist if leg length surgery became mainstream. Then you dont' have to look deep inside your psyche to understand if you need it or not, for YEARS! I still wish some of the folks in the medical community get this to show us that "it can be easily done to get a few inches" hey who doesn't want a few inches? except those at 6 foot already.

it still puzzles me why some of the people closest involved in leg length surgery: doctors, surgeons, people who do  research, people who make nails, these people didn't think "hey why dont' I just geti it for myself?"

like they understand leg length surgery inside and out and know its safe. and the world is superficial af. so why don't these people at least those on shorter spectrum get it done?

I don't think the surgery is safe. Imo a better way to put it is that it is possible to get a few inches without becoming a cripple for the next couple decades (do we have any veterans who are over 20 years after LL? ) while risking chronic pain and certainly losing significant athletic ability. After that, you weight what is more important. For me certainly the height.

Also it is better for this to not become mainstream. Then people (especially women) will be on the lookout for weird proportions and scars, and our life will get more difficult than it already is.
