Hi So i am a girl 152 cm and been considering stryde for femurs even though my tibias would look better if taller , However ive been considering it for Femursin order to get the Maximum Full 8 Cm without anything less!
But you said thatyou stopped at 6.5 ?i would assume u have an athletic body (muscular) so does bodies like that with alot of muscles in legs specially form more Resistance and pain due to strong muscles ?

Because in my case i have No muscle at all, and i was sondering is this something fo my advantage? Having a skinny leg no muscle resistance ? Can i reach the 8 cm ?

~~ note ; i have tight short tendons tho, specially in knee area

I think the minimum stryde diameter is 10mm, it may not fit inside your femur.

Yes I stopped around 6.5 because I was feeling really tight as well as read horror stories on forum that said ppl couldn’t make a full recovery.

Today I can tell you Ive made a full recovery - no pain and completely normal gait.  Have wondered time to time what if I pushed myself another 1.5CM.

But super happy with where I’m at ! I am going to wait a solid year before skiing again but don’t have any physical limitation that I can tell otherwise - good luck !

Thanks for the update - I’m glad that you’re doing well!

Any chance of a video, please? Would be nice to see what you’re walking like particularly because I’m looking at Paley for femur Stryde.

Wish you the best.

Great to hear about a a successful recovery.

Can you recall when you crossed the threshold of walking 100% normal from the perspective of other people (family, friends, co workers) from the time of finishing lengthening. Reading through your diary, nearly a month out it seemed like you were very close to normal, and now it sounds like you are there 100%. Just trying to understand when that threshold was crossed for you since then.

Thanks!

There was another user MyEvolution who has pictures/vids who did his procedure the same time as this user and their diaries overlapped

They acknowledged that they both existed (i.e. MyEvolution who is verified acknowledged that superuser was there while he was there). Again I totally understand the skepticism but just calling this out.

You can't stay at the hospital, but Dr. Paley has a partnership with a nearby Hotel.  His packages include transportation to and from physical therapy from the Hotel.  You receive a discount for the hotel as a Paley LL patient.

Glad you've recovered so well. And thanks for mentioning skiing. Because I've always wondered to what degree you remain functional 1 year post-op.
Skiing is very hard on legs as you do slalom you rotate with high pressure. Considering we don't aim to be a professional at skiing, do you think it's possible to regain average skiing abilities.

Same question goes for going to gym and doing squats, deadlifts etc. (Again assuming I don't aim to be a bulky body builder), can we regain enough strength to continue these activities?

What are your opinions on this?
