@Raz: I had this same problem too at 4 CM and was able to clear it up in 2 weeks. I don’t have time rn to write a super long post with everything Paley had me do,  but if you want to chat, just PM me.

Visit to Dr. Assayag. Bone growth was little better than before. It had only been 3-4 days that I started to walk more so the results you see are not that great but still better than my previous visit.

Questions from Dr. Assayag


  • Can you get post stress arthritis disorder after Leg Lengthening?
  • What do you think of Precise mess. Specifically bone leakage, cancer and recall issues?

Good stuf Razal..The bone is growing slowly but surely..Did you ask the doctor on what factors help in bone growth?Is it just putting pressure or is it just plain old genetics?Can we do something pre LL or test pre LL for this?

It ended up being mixture of things.

Like the other guys on this forum pointed out it was standing up more and taking Vit D and Calcium

- I was not walking enough so more weight bearing was needed
- I started to take more Vitamin D and Calcium
- I was not eating much and Dr. Assayag instructed me to increase protein and other nutrients

Looking good! As you stated earlier, eat, move more and you will be fine. Remember, keep a positive mindset ;)

Razal,

In order of importance for bone generation:
Weightbearing 75% - 95% (Wolff's law of bones)
Food 20%
Vitamins 5%

As you can see, weight bearing is the most important thing, even if you don't take vitamins it's fine

Just if you're doing office work or vibing on YouTube, just stand and watch or do work. Tiring but worth. Stand stand stand and walk if you have energy but stand otherwise

Glad Dr. A said you're bone is doing better. There is big hope to resolve the lack of callus!

@ghkid2021,

I would caution you against giving people advice that it is fine not to take vitamins and that nutrients are only a small percentage of bone consolidation. When I got my lengthening done, the protocol for delayed consolidation was:

1) Slow down the rate of lengthening
2) Monitor and increase Vitamin D level
3) Monitor and increase calcium and nutritional intake
4) Encourage more weight-bearing as tolerated and within the restrictions of the lengthening device.

I'm not saying actively DONT TAKE VITAMINS (why the fück would I encourage that), I'm literally just putting a hypothetical to emphasize the weight of the importance of weightbearing compared to other things

The reality is, most people have enough vitamins. if anything there's a misinformation about the dosage of vitamin D. 5000iu or less is not even enough to support the real RDA (not the fake 800iu RDA that hasn't been updated in decades). I cringe when I see doctors prescribing 2000ius for vitamin D deficiency. 10k minimum a day.

Just to put it out there so I don't get sued: I recommend to take all your vitamins, eat all the fücking food you can and nutrients, but most importantly stand and walk and weightbear.

U know I was never implied in that comment to actively say not take vitamins but of course that's how forums work people dervive strawman arguments . U know what I meant. Twist my intent words. Chose to give more fuel to the argumentative user "th"

I've checked on myself, 1 month without touching the ground and 1 month full/partial weight bearing. This is the most important factor as often said. It's not important to strictly full weight bearing but just to constantly stimulate the bone with a good pressure according to your nail tolerance. Supplements are not so useful actually, it's very important be sure to don't have a lack about them though; they are naturally produced by your body for the most. A good nutrition is enough often, take them to be sure to don't have any problem related to, but don't expect any miracle by them, but after the distraction is almost always a good idea to take them.

@GH Kid: I don't want to hijack this guy's diary with this, so this is the last thing I'll say on the topic. The problem was you said 75-95% weight-bearing.. 20 percent nutrition... 5 percent vitamin, etc, and now you are writing about how much Vitamin D doctors should and shouldn't prescribe. I know your intentions are good but you are spreading your opinion (that has no basis in medical knowledge or your experience as a patient) and other people who either haven't had the surgery or are in the process of lengthening are internalizing it.

As you are working during the distraction phase, How's your focus? Are you able to work comfortably? How many days after the surgery did you start working?

Hi there,

Bone is growing but not as fast. Last visit to Dr. Assayag we decided to start doing the accordion method. So now aside from my regular 0.5mm lengthening , i am also lengthening  by 0.25mm and then shortening by 0.25mm everyday. Dr. Assayag is hoping that will fast track the bone growth

I started to work from home after 1 month. The first month my mind was cloudy. And I started to physically go to work 2 months after the surgery
