Hey SuchLL, same situation (also sde but I went back to work after a week lol) glad to see you're almost done! I just hit 5cm and am also experiencing left knee/lower leg numbness with the pins and needles/burning sensation.  Happened when I started accelerating my lengthening from 3 to 4 times a day (had to do it just for a week), I think it'll be resolved when distraction stops/slows and stretching alot more on that leg.

How's it going? Have you reached 8cm and been back home now?

Dec 17, consolidation day 7: I hit 8 cm a week ago. The last x-ray showed that my left nail was a little longer than the right. I shortened the left nail by 2 mm but the x-ray still showed the exact same numbers... I’m not sure if the left nail was shortened since it made weird click sound while the machine was running. The doctor told me to not worry since the measurements would not be that accurate if I didn’t stand up straight, and a few mm discrepancy isn’t a problem. I’m home now and I walk a lot a lot better. I can also slowly walk up and down stairs without any support. I started to wfh this week and life is getting back to normal!

Thanks for the update and congrats on making 8cm. I wouldn't be too worried about a 2mm discrepancy since I don't think you can even feel it. How bad was flexibility right when you finished lengthening? Is it much better after seven days?

Really loving the new Paley diaries recently. Seems like randomly for some reason all of a sudden, every Asian who is a software engineer decided to book a surgery for Stryde femurs with Paley in the month of September. You're like number 3 already lol

This diary is incredibly detailed, and it's awesome you did foam rolling and stretching for 3 months. You're way ahead of the curve, and I'm happy your 妈妈 is taking care of you.

Keep taking pictures bro. That's a really cool erc machine, thanks for showing us, never would've knew if you didn't share !

Best of luck brotha

Kinda suspicious to be really honest, seems like fake diaries by Paley Institute. Hope not though, that would be really disappoinying lol...

I met this guy in person during my consultation. He is recovered really well.

There’re at least 5 Chinese guys and 3 Chinese girls when I was there...  LL seems popular among Chinese lol. And Paley doesn’t need “fake diaries”. He doesn’t focus on cosmetic LL surgeries. Many of his patients are kids who have real problems, and he’s super busy... we only get chance to see him if we have serious problems. Small problems will be taken care of by other doctors. (I never had any serious problems so I didn’t even meet him during the 3 month process. That’s how busy he is)

Jan 21, consolidation day 42: sorry for not having any updates for more than a month. I recovered really well and faster than I expected. I met a couple of people in the last two weeks and no one noticed any problems with my legs! I look almost normal when I walk slowly. My body is not very stable when walking downstairs, but walking upstairs is fine. I still have a little duck ass but it’s not noticeable to others in winter. I will have x-ray tomorrow and hope my bones heal nicely.

I stayed at home most of time because of covid so I can’t give you a good answer on how LL impacts my life so far. I’m just back to my “covid” normal unfortunately lol... but LL is absolutely worth it. Thinking about growing 3 inches in just 3 months! The pain is really nothing. I don’t think I have any complications so far except weaker legs, but I’m recovering pretty well so I’m sure everything will be back to normal.

Hi @SuchLL, Congrats on your successfull recovery!
Height dysphoria IS a real problem, the fact that it hurts mentally and not physically doesn't make it less painful.
"Serious" problems start as "small" problems... Who was assessing you at your follow-ups? A certified orthopaedic surgeon? A junior doctor? Was it the same doctor every time or just random doctors of the team? Did Paley do your operation himself or was it someone else? Did you see Paley in the operation room on the day of your surgery? Did you pay the full "Paley fee" despite the fact that he never actually saw you? Would you agree to upload your x-rays when you have them?
Many thanks, All the best for your future!

Paley is a really busy man... All diaries are similar where they barely see Paley and only see Robbins  and still not often.. Paley has done on average 12 surgeries a week for the past 34 years straight... He even got sued once for doing two surgeries at the same time in different rooms and messing up some child's ankle surgery or something... He's always busy making new procedures for pediatric bone deformities and writing papers... He is a very very busy man

The Paley price is essentially the initial surgery
