Hi germanlim,

Thanks for posting the journal, and congratulations on your result.
I'm also planning femur stryde, and I consider dr Kohne a very interesting choice.

A few Q's,
-Why did you choose dr Kohne over other options in Europe, such as dr Giotkas?
-What did you have to pay for the surgery?
-6cm seems quite conservative (but a smart choice), why didn't you decide to push a bit further?
-After how many weeks did you feel like you could walk around completely unassisted, without feeling too unstable?
-How are you feeling right now, and can you reasonably perform more strenuous exercise, such as running/jumping?

Hi germanslim,

Did Dr Kohne say why he recommended 6cm on femur? As compared to many other doctors who allow up to 8cm or more for some Turkish doctors?

It's the general safety mindset of german doctors. As far as i can remember Dr. Paly has mentioned that complications occur exponentially when you go over 6 cm. There is a clear difference between german orthopedists like Kohne and "butcher-like" doctors in Turkey or in East Europe.

Looking back almost one year ago i have to say that height dysphoria cant be healed by a pychologist. There is an amazing video from cyborg4life about this topic. I tried it also some time with the tipps of Psychologist. But that did not help me. Because of the height dysphoria I got urgent alcoholic problems. The only thing that helps is the surgery in my opinion

Any diary around 6cm femur does have way better long term recovery than 8cm femurs for various reasons but I always thought in helping develop the precise nail that Dr Paley said 8cm was the max he would want it to lengthen due complications.

Hi, congrats to you! Wishing you a speedy recovery. I had a question regarding your working situation.

1. How were you able to work and manage the pain? Did you take any narcotics, or what were you taking so you could work while doing this?
2. Did you get one of those bed desks? I heard for the first three weeks its hard to move in and out of a wheelchair, so how did you manage working?
3. Any WFH tips?

Hey Thank you .

1. the pain was not so hard after two weeks. But i took some pain killers so it was ok.
It is definitly possible to work. I even did 40h/week. 

2. when i was at office, i put a carton under my feet. That helped. Someday i could work at home and did it on the couch.

This depends what you mean with participate.

General the first week you are in Hospital.

After two weeks the threads are pulled, so you can take a shower again.

Then you can meet friends for example. And i went back to my job. Or you can go to a Restaurant or cinema for example or go to a dentist.

But of course you cant play soccer. This will need some months.

After around four  weeks everything is going more easy. But the distraction phase is the hardest one. When you are in consolidation phase everything is sooo much more easy, no compare. Any further questions?

Short walks (e.g. to the toilett) around two weeks.

I can remember when I went back to my job I walked to  canteen without crutches. But stay in mind it is more safty to walk with crutches and it is more easy

Köhne is considerably cheaper than the US doctors. Also nail removal is included.

In addition, I have the very strong feeling that you are not in the position to judge how somebody is paying for surgery ;)

Thank you Mangoman 

As mangoman said he is a very honest surgeon. Not only removal is included. Also tax is included. In Germany u have to pay 19% tax.

So he is not making so much Money as u think.

And i have paid the surgery on my own. I have studied and a good job. As well i have saved alot of money because i live very close to him.
