This is very interesting document, designed for children, but it does provide some useful information:

Interesting that swimming is allowed with the frame on.

yeah i was wondering about that too. i thought you weren't even allowed to get those pin sites wet?? besides, you know how at public swimming pools they have signs saying that no one with an open wound or a bandaid on can enter the pool? hmm...

Very cute article. It would be cool if Dr. Xia made something similar. Just out of curiosity, is there the same stigma with AL as there is with LL?

I know that therapeutic pools in NHS hospitals have sterile conditions, but I'm not sure if this guide was intended just for those...

Very good article and it shows getting the lengthening done on the forearm as well.  Very interesting.
