Hey Razal!
Good luck Man, I'm sure you will hit 8cm. Watching your videos brings up so many memories from my own hospitalization last summer...

That PT is right when she say the Thomas stretch is very important. I wish I had focused more on hamstrings in my first month. I'm afraid that I've fallen behind on stretching the hamstring already, though some of it might be due to the recurrence of swelling.

Thanks for making these vids!!! What options did Dr. Assayag talk to you about he could do if there are complications and how much money did he advise you to keep in reserve in case of complications?

Hi SpeedDialer,

Dr. Assayag spoke to me about many many complications. First was nicotine use of any kind and issues related to that. Then there was too much soda and alcohol consumption based complications. Finally there were things like non-union, bent nails and uber stretched muscles like the ones causing bent knee, duck ass or ballerina foot.

He had advised me to have 10-15k USD ready for any complications. Knock on wood, so far I have not had any

The complications did not concerned me as much because after talking to Assayag I could tell these people have seen a thing or two and know how to fix them before they get too problematic. In my case all I am doing is following the plan they are telling  me to.

Due to HIPAA and PHI laws I cannot talk about other patients at Siani however, I can assure you one thing, I have seen many many kids and adults here getting their limbs fixed (not cosmetic) but discrepancy issues in one of their legs.(their methods are exactly same as cosmetic)

Hope this helps
RD

Hi Siegfried,

Ok, this may sound a little weird or even crazy lol. So even though I know lengthening is slowly tightening me up and may even start to hurt more.... and even though my thighs are sore, I find myself more happy and looking forward to reaching my goals.

I am quite happy at the moment and am not in the mindset of "just get this over with", instead I am quite enjoying this time, the therapies, the stretches... its quite an experience.

The point is - I have spent a considerable amount of money on this anyway, so why not enjoy the journey as a unique experience in life lolz   :P :)

One for the bucket list!!  ;D

Good luck on your surgery!

What do you have in your list of stuff to pack/bring with you when you move to the area of your surgery? I'm still not sure the right amount of stuff to bring

I’m no expert for sure, but I’d say the battle is already won with this mental approach and attitude 👍; keep it up! 💪
