I am a swimmer and my flexibility has always been very good to be honest. In regard to the medication and physio that would come out of your own pocket as far as I know but you have to ask directly with Dr. Buldus team.

Hi Jamesy998,
 
I am going to read your diary, but a quick glance tells me you are on the right track.

I believe athleticism is the key to a fast recovery. Hope you will reach your CLL goals soon.

23/02/2021

Update - I am currently at 6CM. I have noticed stretching pain on the left pinsite by my knee which is normal in this case and glad it was not an infection. I have exactly 20 more days to go until my frame removal which is planned for the 16th of March, I have to say I am very nervous in a good way. The good thing is that this will be another step forward and this way I know I can no longer get any possible infections and the pinsite pains will no longer distract me away from my physio sessions. The past few days I have been taking it really easy, minimum walking but mostly stretching on the bed. My ROM is the same as before at about 75 degrees or so on my right leg and about 65 degrees on my left and that is only because of the pinsite pain that is present. I have recently been getting more than 10 hrs sleep which is amazing and I never feel too tired. Fixators have kind of grown on me but boy will i be happy to remove them.

I did honestly think that after 5cm was going to be extremely difficult but surprisingly enough I have zero pains, although this will not change my mind about sticking to my 8CM goal and not going a single millimetre above it. My back is significantly better. I think I did mention it previously in my updates that I had trouble sleeping because of it and I also could not stand straight 100 percent but now it has got significantly better for me. Hamstrings do feel tight of course but I can feel my body can take that extra 2cm that is left, if not then 7.5cm is also satisfactory. I do plan on staying in Turkey for a further 6 weeks post removal to gain my energy, flexibility and mobility back.

My next X-Ray will be done on surgery date and I will only be sharing them with those of you who are interested with a password in the future simply because I will not be giving any troll the pleasure of seeing my X-Rays or recovery.

Cheers,

Jamesey.

The biggest problem is that your ROM (range of motion)
SO there is two type of Range of motion
1. Active range of motion which means you can do yourself
2. Passive Range of motion which means someone (physio) helping you
so could you tell us 75° in right is active range of motion or passive?
Other concern is you are saying today you are 6cm and in next 20 day you will become 8 cm , with external frame or device this is not possible if you are doing 1mm/day

75 Degrees is my active range of motion and thats in a comfortable zone. If I try really hard then I can get about 85 degrees. I do not mind if it is even 7.5cm gained. David had the same ROM as me and now he has full ROM so that is not something that worries me.

Of course, muscle and nerve pain is almost 1/10 and skin stretching pain is 3/10. Skin stretching pain is only when you are moving a lot though and not at night time when you are still.

I thought I would give an update on my current situation and upcoming plans. I have decided that the 10th of march will be the last day that I lengthen which will give me 6 days prior to frame removal to rest and practice my knee bending and straightening and make my removal process and recovery run a little smoother. At that point I should be anywhere from170-172cm, I do not care for millimetres as it shows no significant real life difference, initially my plan was to be at least 170cm and anything past that would be a bonus. I have trouble at the moment straightening my right knee which should heal up with time after removal with some intense physiotherapy. My left leg is fine although the bending on my right knee is better by about 10 degrees. All in all I am happy that I am nearing to the end and it has been exhausting, for those of you who do the second surgery I admire your patience and strength honestly. My pain is only when trying to straighten my right knee and that is if I really push it but other than that I feel fine. Burning sensations slightly every now and again but that is to be expected no surprise there.

I am at a point where the lengthening process was so tiring that even though I no longer have an issue with my height, I am not exactly celebrating either, just happy that i don't have to think about this ever again in the future and I can finally move on with my life. I am looking forward to the recovery part as I like a challenge myself and although it is fairly obvious that I can no longer go back to 100 percent, I will do my best to achieve the highest level possible.

I am proud to be a part of this community honestly, the better part of it at least haha. No one without height neurosis could possibly imagine what we have to go through with this operation, the dedication and patience it takes and don't even get me started on the recovery process. I have had encouragement from many of you on these forums and I would like to thank each and every one of you for that.

At the moment I have forgotten the feeling of comfort so that is one thing I will gladly look forward too and hopefully achieve in the not too distant future.

There have been reports of post op pain after the removal which has honestly had me a little nervous but other than that I feel fine.
