Hi Sunshine

I am sooo happy for you. Yeah your legs sure look little “boney”. I mean they are visibly weak due to muscle stretching and inactivity.
Keep us posted, your dairy will be a CLL bible to understand what to expect at each stage ... I have learned so many things and now excited/waiting for you to finish consolidation and regain the lost muscle power...

Best regards

Thanks AnotherShorty,
Funny thing is I actually never liked my pre-op bulky legs lol. I kinda like their slenderness today but I know that's not gonna last cuz as soon as I weight bear again they're gonna regain their mass as before. So today I'm enjoying these thin legs while they last lol

What a difference 8cm can do on the thighs:

June 14 - pre-op


August 12 - post-op swelling


October 21 - 7.2cm

Thanks init1alove!
I remember my Doctor saying in an interview how he carefully cuts the bones very very slowly during osteotomy lol

Thanks AnotherShorty!
Now I'm counting the days until full consolidation so I can start walking unaided and working out my glutes and hip flexors properly.

Yeah Sunshine !! Now you have crossed the phase of any potential complication, just waiting for you to consolidate and regain your strength. It will be so fun for you to finally walk straight and enjoy your life as a TALL man   :D
