Dr. Debiparshad - Stryde Femurs
« on: March 09, 2019, 03:20:01 AM »

Hey everyone,

I’m planning on doing the surgery in June with Dr. D. I’ll be doing stryde, 3 inches on my femurs.

Anyone else planning on being there the same time?

Awesome! I’ll be going by myself. Is anyone coming with you?

 I’m from the west coast so he seemed like the best option for me.

Good luck with your Journey.  Hopefully you create a diary for the future CLL'ers!

No one is coming with me. I'm coming from Texas. I agree, he sounds like the best option! I'll shoot you a DM.

Hi Octavio,

You will be able to bear full weight, which is amazing to help get around, transfer, and rehab; but your walk will look like Frankenstein duck for at least a few months.  Additionally, you will not feel comfortable to walk a long distance because your muscles in your thighs will be very very tight, lack normal flexibility and fatigue easily. You will want some assistance.  I would not plan on walking normally and without a cane or crutches, for at least 4 to 6 months, post op.   Stryde allows you to bear full weight from day one and rehab faster.  Having said that; the cool thing about the Stryde nail, as long as you work hard in PT, is that you CAN walk...and if you CAN walk, you can train your gate...and eventually get back to normal much faster.   My Doctor mentioned that my walk was 4 months ahead of patients that typically used precise. Imagine being back on your feet walking normally 3-4 months quicker than the old process. It's a great innovation.

Hi Jaybam

Good luck for your journey!!!  I just have one question.  Do you need to stay nearby hospital during lengthening for PT like most of patients?  Or is it possible to go back home and do lengthening and PT on your own like InFullStryde?

Thanks,

You don't need to stay nearby. Dr. D. said that 90% of his patients leave Las Vegas after 3 weeks and he gives a slight discount if you do PT on your own at home.

The only logistical issue to consider is that he wants to see his patients ever 2-3 weeks during the lengthening phase, but he said a lot of his patients fly in and fly out on the same day.

Hi jaybam

Thanks for answering my question!  Looks like Dr. D has similar plans like Dr. M.  Dr. D's price seems cheaper.  I think it is a good choice!
Good luck!!  Wish you the best of luck!

wow never heard of this doctor before, but yeah his prices do seem cheaper than Dr. Mahboubian's, but then you add up all the additional costs and who knows if it actually ends up being cheaper

I'll probably be staying nearby. I just had my video consult and this guy is the real deal. He made me feel very comfortable and I am confident in his knowledge. Paley is a great option as well, but Dr. D is much more closer to me. I'm excited to start my journey in June!

He's had several Stryde surgeries, one who posted in this forum and I actually had a convo with. He did his first surgery 6/2018.

Hi jaybam

You don't need to say sorry and don't have any reason to have any record to make your story believable.  You just need to do what you want to do.  Whether ones believe your story or not is totally up to them.  You are about to face life changing event.  Just focus on what you need.

Good luck!!

And I'm happy to make a 4th post to say that I am in fact going forward with surgery in May. It really doesn't matter to me whether you want to believe me or not. I will however keep a diary.

Thank you, Ghostfish! Hoping for a smooth journey as well! Hopefully keeping a diary will be a small way to repay the community for all the great information I've read over the years before deciding to move forward with surgery.
