Yesterday I had my last in-person follow-up appointment with Dr.Giotikas. I have officially reached 8cm, the length of my left and right femur bones are equal. It's been a tough and long journey. I've learned a lot of things from this procedure. It definitely makes you stronger and become a real man. Dr.G is definitely a nice person, an excellent surgeon. I'm very grateful he's doing LL for cosmetic patients at an affordable price. Otherwise, I would have to wait one more year to be able to afford US doctors.  I want to give a shout-out to Movie, MyEvolution, InFullStryde, OverrideYourGenetics, StrydeNailChallenge, and other LL veterans, they provided a lot of valuable information. I will keep updating my recovery in my diary. Good luck!


Btw, Dr.Giotikas is pretty tall, he's about 186, 187cm.

Congrats Asian! Heard you're doing tibias later on too, I hope you recover from this fully asap so it'll be as smooth of an experience when the time comes for tibs! Appreciate all the x-rays and documentation dude!

What are your thoughts on the best places/prices to get a covid test in Athens?

I read that some countries like USA require you to get it before coming back to USA:
https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/traveladvisories/ea/covid-19-information.html

Effective January 26, the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) will require all air passengers entering the United States (including U.S. citizens and Legal Permanent Residents) to present a negative COVID-19 test, taken within three calendar days of departure or proof of recovery from the virus within the last 90 days​. Airlines must confirm the negative test result or proof of recovery for all passengers two years of age and over prior to boarding. ​Airlines must deny boarding of passengers who do not provide documentation of a negative test or recovery

I never thought about this problem but it seems like someone could get stuck in limbo if they can't return to the USA but also can't stay in Greece due to reaching their time limit from the medical visa

My gait is almost the same, the recovery is slower than what I expected. I think I'll need a few more months to get back to a normal gait. I remember my gait was getting worsen after 6cm, so if you only lengthen 5-6cm, the recovery would be much faster.

There are hundreds of places you can get the covid test, this is not a problem at all.
