Hello,

So far I have turned 1. 7 cm and no major pain is caused.

I have been exercising 4 times a day, each 45 minutes or so, bending a knee, lifting and sliding legs,,

Today I take a X-ray, hope everything goes well.

X-ray went satisfactory with 1.5 cm up confirmed for both legs out of 1.8 cm of turning.

I am asking to Dr. and Physio for turning more than 1.0 cm a day.
They say that my legs are very flexible. 

The weather was very hot outside with the temperature rising up to 40 degree but
with the AC and Fan inside the room, It is nothing to worry about.

 ??? Lengthening a CM a day? I don't think that's very safe.   Have I misunderstood something?

Regardless, congratulations on your procedure and I wish you a speedy, safe recovery!

Can you post some photos to make your diary a bit more reliable? Previously we had some problems verifying authenticity   of the diaries for India.

Sure, No problem. But I don't know how. There is a icon above the message box and I tried but it did not work.
Anybody could you please tell me how to post a image??

As soon as I know, I'll update the photos of X-ray and my legs with frames.
thanks

Thanks,

I have added the x ray image which was taken on Jun 12th.
I have turned 4.5 cm so far and the x ray showed 3.5 cm of gaining for Right foot and 3.6 cm for Left foot. 

For he past a week or so, I have having the pain in my left foot ,especially when I bend my knee and sit on the chair.
The physio said in this stage the nerve and muscle, all getting intense, so normal.

Talking about the physio, My physio is out of town for his personal things for 10 days starting from last Saturday.
So,his colleague comes once in a day but he did not come yesterday. He said he was ill..

Another thing is that since last Saturday, I am using a walker for the exercise and doing this 3 times a day for 2-3 minutes.
Currently 2 patients including myself is in the hostel.

Hello,

Dr. Sringari struck me as warm, modest and easy to talk person as well as very good professional.

For example, when I had a stomach pain, he was quick to come to see me and who is the one that said I need to go to to a hospital, which I am glad I did because I found a stone in my kidney.... you can see from the pictures the cut he had made around the pin, it's very tiny.

Only thins that I am not so happy with is that I thought he would visit his patients more frequently, once a week or once every 2 weeks, or something,but so far except for that emergency case, he has only visited me and the other patients only once back in April.

But at some point I was beginning to think that maybe with the physiotherapist ( Dr. Harry) who work very close to the doctor come
and see us everyday (well not from June 14th to 25th or 26th), maybe, he has simply no need to come.. Harry talk to a doctor about us  and he knows how we are doing.

Anyway, I would be happy at the end of the day If I could reach my target with no complications.( I will write all about it of course)
Regarding my conditions as of now, I was having a pain in my left leg, so yesterday I took a pain killer and feeling better at this moment.

Hello,

The pain I was feeling on my left leg are completely gone. I guess the pill that I have been taking just worked...

I just want to mention that the caretaker have been doing great work with his massages. With Harry gone and his colleague come only once a day at night, I am so happy that he is with us.

Taking about the physio, I just hope that Harry come back this Friday as he said. Yes, He send me and the other patients his alternative, his colleague but he only comes once a day and it's nice to have someone who have worked with us for the past months especially at this stage of turning we have made.....

Hello Guys,

I will update some.

On July 2nd I had to move from a hotel to an apartment. It was midnight around 24:30 taking a taxi for 15 to 20 minutes. Truth speaking, I really liked staying at a hotel so I insisted that I want to stay in a hotel but the doctor and Harry said the hotel is too expensive so I have to move... Here moving out to a new place, the room is clean and the apartment is in safe area and also only about 15 minutes away from the clinic where Harry works so he says he can come twice a day. All in all, so far so good.

The caretaker is staying with us in an apartment and he does absolutely everything.(cooking, cleaning, exercise, shopping outside...) He works so hard and I am so happy with him. His name is Laxman. He is 20 years old.

The most worrying thing is that since moving out, I'm having a lot of pain on my both legs. Maybe that day for moving, I was sitting too much time on a taxi, that could be the cause. The other patients also having the same pain as mine.. Today, I take a day off from turning. Hopefully the pain goes and able to resume the turning tomorrow..

Today is Sunday so usually the physio does not come but I called him to come because of this pain ( I need to have a exercise) and he said he comes later..

I will update the pics of new place later.

Hello,

On July 5th:

I was feeling severe pain on my both legs and my right feel looked a little twisted, so I called Harry to come. At night, He came and also the doctor later came. The doctor told me that yes, my right foot is a little twisted but nothing serious and with more exercises done it could be fixed. The doctor said that he would give me a antibiotics later. He is a very friendly, easy to talk person and I have 100% trust on him. I was so happy that he came to see me. And Harry told me that as a precaution I should take a 2-3 days off from turning. I only turned in the morning for 0.25 mm and nothing more. And, The doctor told me that I will take a X ray soon and we could see the condition but most likely I could reach my target which is 7 cm.

On July 6th:

As Harry told me, I did't turning nothing for today. The pain was still on the both legs but a lot less than yesterday. Harry came twice a day and said the condition has improved a lot and at night moving my right toes, I felt a lot more flexible on the ankle.

On July 7th:

The morning Harry came and said my right feet is getting flexible and he comes back the evening and checks the condition. If everything OK, then, I can start turning. It seems like the worst day is over...

At the end, I want to mention about Laxman (caretaker) he has been very helpful like I mentioned before. He does a lot of work. I like his cooking. So far, He has made Hamburgar, Sandwiches, Grilled chicken,  Pancake.. I will update some of photos later. When this all finished, I will take him to a movie..

thx

Hi,

Due to the limited access to the internet where I stay at, I can only use internet midnight , non at day-time.
For day time use, I have paid but still internet is super slow!!
 
I will update when internet become available the day time.. I'm calling to a service center many times..

I had X-ray on July 31st and was shown that right leg is 7.7 mm and left leg is 7.9 mm.
I was expecting something 7.0 mm so it was quite surprise. It seems like every mm I turned I won..
 
I am expecting to remove frames on Aug 5th.

I hope frame removal goes smoothly...

Dr Sringari told me the surgery takes only 30 minutes to 1 hour and no need to stay in a hospital overnight.

Next 3 to 7 days stay on the bed and then start to do the exercise, Harry said...

How u are treated

In a hotel,

There are about 5-6 hotel boys, so anything you need you can ask them ( yet for hotel side, they seems not so pleasant..)
And, there is a care taker coming to a hotel 7 days a week from about 10:00 am to 6:00-7:00 pm. u can ask him anything u need.

In a apartment

u stay with caretaker. Anything u need, he helps u. Cooking, laundry, cleaning, shopping outside...he does everything alone.

He seems to me super busy.. He is very nice and doing very well but one thing I don't like is every morning, I need to go to his room and wake him up. Otherwise, he never shows up and sleeping and sleeping. I called him on the phone but somehow I can't reach..I prefer breakfast at 9:00 or as late at 9:30. but I should not complain as I understand he is super busy and just tired...

The pain & condition

Past 1 or 2 weeks, feeling a little tense / stretch in my right ankle. Was told by Harry that this caused by too much turning, thus now turning 00.5 mm a day. No pain at all on the left leg. Good flexibility on both legs. The flexibility on the ankle, the left one is good, the right one is a little tense, but not much, no need to worry, all was told by Dr. Harry.

In the summary, one day I feel pain on the left, one day on the right, at different part .. Harry told me its all normal. The pain did not last forever. At some point, it stopped.

Why India, Why Dr. Sringari

First of all, I couldn't afford to go to Germany, USA, Italy, not even Ukraine. So in the cost wise my options were limited. China, Russia, India were my options. Russia was dropped because they operates external frames only, this method is painful, high risk for pin break and takes a lot of time for recovery. China and India, I thought about it. Both does the external with LON, takes more or less the same period in whole process,

I decided to go to India because the response from Dr. Singari was quick and had good impression from his email. He has experienced, says almost no complications, cares about the patients, he seems good doctor. Also, I read some of diaries abt Dr. Sringari and looks all patients went on good. Yes, there are some always says negative things but there are always such a case I believe. Dr. Sarin, I never thought about him because of reputations he has now.

That's why I am here... thanks for reading..

About X-Ray.

Taken once in a month at a hospital. Had 4 times in total. Only the last one, 2 shots was taken from different angle, side way and front side. Told by physio (Dr. Harry) that the front shot is more accurate. The last one, the one taken in a side way showed 7.2 or something for both legs ( X ray is not returned yet) but the one in front shot showed 7.7 for right, 7.9 for left. Therefore, recommendable to take a shot from front angle, more accurate at least the final time.

No CT scan was taken. Told that for CT scan extra expense needed.

Just want to say even if I could afford Germany or USA or whatever, I am not sure if I could spend that much of money on something you could do by a lot less amount somewhere different.. Of course, my decision would be judged only when I reach my target and walk normal again...

About the food (part 2)

From the day of arrival to end of May, Food was provided from outside, the delivery service. Most of them were very spicy for me, I had curry, pasta, rice, soup, noodle,,The quantity and quality wise, I can't say that I enjoyed it so I asked to Harry to change a place to order. Harry took care of it and  changed a place, but still only little improvement is made..

I appreciate that he tried but I asked to Harry that from June 1st, I order whatever I want outside so give some money back for food. He gave me 10,000 INR for a month.

From July 1 st to middle of June, I ordered food outside as I proposed, most to Chinese. I had noodle, rice, soup, sometimes I ordered to hotel front, burgers, noodle, sandwich, also sometimes gave money to caretaker to get me some fruits or something.  Things got a lot better..

Since middle of June, the system went back to before, No money given to me but they prepares food. this time caretaker cooks food. you can see the pictures attached. He cooks very well. I sometimes give money to him when he goes to market to buy me fruits, milk, snacks,,,.

that's how it is.

Congratulations on your lengthening :) You seem to be doing good. Your frames remind mine. They're big, double rings by knee and ankles. Only thing I could complain about is FOOD. How do you survive on this little portions?? When I had my lengthening done I used to eat a lot :P I had snack or 2-3 sandwiches every 2-3 hours. I was always hungry  8) Good luck to you. How much is your lengthening goal?

How the surgery proceeded.

Woke up in the morning, was taken to a hospital by Dr. Harry in his car. The hospital was not so big. My first impression was, oh Is this the hospital to have this very complex surgery, hmmmm.   No offense.

I had Q&A with girl nurse, blood test, CT scan, some other test, all took for 1 hour or something. After that, was taken to a single room, all my leg heirs were shaved by male nurse.

Some minutes later, was taken to a surgery room in 2nd floor in a wheel chair by a male nurse and put on the surgery bed ( not sure how to say..) there were 2 to 3 male surgeons already. All looked relaxed, with mask, globes on. Unlike them I was a little anxious..A few minutes later, more male surgeons came and at last, Dr. Singari showed up smiling, looked relaxed. He shook my hands and said u don't need to worry anything.

Then, I got a cover on my face, body, legs were put slightly up.. The male surgeons, who was very friendly, came closer to me and whispered, If u want, I can get u sleep. But I said I rather want to be awake. He put big injection on my spine back. It was a anesthesia. Slowly my half of below body went asleep.

Then the surgery started, I heard all the sound of drilling, I was a little terrified but the cover was put on the legs, so I could't see anything, but I saw slight sight of my toe moving, shaking..

It took 3-4 hours, I believe. It was 6:30 pm or something. I think I was awake in whole time but I may have be sleeping at some point. I don't remember. The doctors was heading to the entrance gate so was Dr. Singari. There was only me and other 2 doctors ( could be nurse, I don't know) in a room. He took me to a stretcher and taken me back to the single room where I was going to spend next 3 days.

Post surgery

Stayed in a single room in a hospital for 3 nights. All my legs were bandaged. My right hand was stripped with infusion all days.I had a pain killer and anesthesia. I didn't feel any pain.

But because of the anesthesia, I was always sleepy and actually sleeping all 3 days, day and night. Time to time, the nurse came to check my pulse and changed the infusion. I didn't feel any appetite. Meal looked good but I had only small portion, no more. I felt vomiting and actually vomited a couple of times. Nurse available 24 a day. There is a button on the bed, U can call anytime.

After 3 days in a hospital I was taken back to a hotel by a taxi. Outside was so hot, the road was bumpy, the exotic music in a taxi, still feeling anesthesia , I was feeling vomiting and when the taxi got to a hotel, I could't help but vomiting.  :-[

Back to my room, with AC on, laying down on a big bed, I felt good and thought the first big part is finally over....

Hello,

I have no other choices, yes sometimes I feel a little hungry but that's all I get here. Here is a boy who takes care of everything, he gets money from Harry and buys food outside. When he goes to market, I give him some money to get me fruits or snacks so that I won't be hungry and sleep well at night....

My goal is 7-8 cm up and I already reached 8.0 cm for both. I stopped turning for today and tomorrow I will have my frames removed..

The inversion I take it as ballerina or twisted feet. my right ankle is a little tight but Harry, My physio told me that in consolidation phase, he can get it more flexible, no need to worry he said.

Post by: Gakinotukai on August 05, 2015, 11:08:52 AM

Just want let people here to know,

Here is two ex-patients who are misleading people making decisions coming here.

Don't listen to them.

1 Polycrates

・Walked away without paying extra stay of money.
・Had constant fight with other patients and nobody liked him, nobody talked to him. ( I've met one ex patient here and he also said he was a little mentally unstable..)
・No medical background but talking as if he is doctor himself, like knows everything about medics.
・He is already 5 feet 10 inches when he came. and now he's thinking to go on to do his femur...
・He was saying something awful abt Indian people here, really violent things.

2. One patient who telling his story of nail sticking out of his bone.

・He went traveling just 2- 3 weeks after frame removal
・He jumped into water a few months after frame removal
・He was running 17 km per hour only a few months after his frame removal
・Now he is perfectly fine
・He is just a teenager

All informed by Dr. Harry

People here are so sensitive and jump into a comment something negative because they too afraid of this surgery and looking for a place where perfectly  safe, where no bad things heard. So anytime they read those comments, they think, ahhh this doctor is so bad, I'm glad to know now, I should never go.. I understand, this diary are the only way to get to know what's going on but the fact is that not all people are trustful, some are just reckless teenage boy and some are someone who mentally not fit well enough.. you can't simply listen to these people.

I'm here with Dr. Singari and Dr. Harry with having this surgery almost about to complete. Sure sometimes I get frustrated and some of things I don't like it but you can't expect 5 hotel services here. People come to India because of this economical price lets face it And Dr. Singari seems a good doctor and so is Harry, he is a decent physio. they have about 100 patients of experience and except for only one patient, all got well and went back home fine. The one who got trouble is he didn't listen to Harry and turned more than 10 cm..

I just want to say that here all we want to get taller and reading diaries but someone for some reasons is misleading people, or may be they don't have sense of misleading but just mentally not fit enough or just a kid. u need to write off those people, I know u can't tell who is trustful or who isn't, but I'm here with Harry and he told me everything about them and showed me their pics and videos everything. I am telling the fact..

I still have some days here before going back home but I'm sure I'll be fine, going home without trouble, having achieved my target, of course I will let u know everything. I think anyone who can't afford USA or Germany and want to be a little taller without any complication, I think here is good option. But I have to say you can't expect again 5 star hotel services here.I will try to write later on about the service here. Hospitality wise I'm not so happy I have to say.

Don't listen to these two. they just messing up. I hope my voice is heard..

Again last night I was feeling awful pain, some stretch on my right ankle. Couldn't sleep, after a while I took a Frexura and a few minutes later I was in total comfort. this is a great medicine, once again I noticed.. This gives u a muscle relaxation and no strong side effect, was told be Harry.

Today outside is raining, usually from July to October is raining season in India. The temperature is around 30 degree, I assume. When I arrived in middle of April, the temperature is over 40 and outside was absolutely boiling.. In fact some 500 people in Delhi confirmed to be dead because of excessive heat. u don't need to worry though. Inside u have AC and fan.

Frexura has muscle relaxation effect, has no serious side effect, I asked to my physio. that's why here every pharmacy is selling it. DOn't worry.

tried sirdalud  last night, didn't think it ade that much of a difference pain wise, it did make my hands super weak though, like if i was to try and lift them.

afterwards i tried arcoxia and wow that did the trick, did a great job at blocking the pain, i thin i found my painkiller.

Great Diary, Gakinotukai.  Your diary inspire me but yet, I'm still skeptical of doing this type of operation.  I used to live Japan for 4 years at Aomori-ken back in 2009 and knowing a Japanese like yourself going through this operation make me feel comforts and motivates me to archived my dream of getting taller.  Arigatou Gozaimasu Gaki-san.  Please keep us updated of your Diary. . .

Frame removal on Aug 8th

Had a frame removal at early morning around 7:00 am in the same hospital when I had the frame on surgery. Surgery took about one and half hours. During the surgery I was asleep and don't remember anything. Because I had anesthesia on my back.

After the surgery, moved into a single room. Had constant nausea and a little pain my legs. Asked a nurse for pain killer for both. Had some injections and also antibiotics. I was asleep much of the time and the pain was gradually gone.

Also, Had lunch and dinner (potato,juice, corn) Harry came at 9:00 to pick me up and on our way home, we were talking and I asked him, My right ankle is a little tight and I worried..Harry told me yes you're ankle is a little tight now but after a while, the muscle and tissue gets soft and ur ankle gets more flexible. He said I can fix u.. Don't worry...

☆ A day before the surgery
・After the dinner, no more eating, Only water  * recommendable to take something light
・No exercise and no turning, all told by Harry

Writing this dairy next morning after the surgery, I slept well and feeling no pain. Harry told me today I take total rest, no exercise at all..

Today is post 9 days after the frame removal and had a physio session from Harry for the first time since the operation . My ankle is a little stiff and my knee need to be fixed. He said it gets better from today as he gives me proper physio sessions. He comes once a day for this week and may come twice a day depending on my recovery. 

Yesterday, post 8 days of frame removal, I started biking, twice a day, each takes abt one hour. Back home, I have this kind of exercise bike and this one here is not so working well. The pedal is very heavy. I put a oil last night and got slightly light but still heavy especially for someone who has been on the bed past 4 months. Requesting to take some actions to solve this issue to Harry but so far no measure has been taken.... I have to say I am disappointed.

Hello yuu

you can contact Dr. Harry or Dr. Singari. They will help you to apply for a Visa.

Dr. Singari⇒info@drsringari.in
Dr.Harry⇒91 95608 67721

The whole process takes about 5 months (3 months for lengthening and 2 months for recovery). I don't know what type of Visa you going to apply but all you need is to have about 5 months, thats all. If you can stay about 5 months with a normal visa, that would be just enough. Harry told me.

Today is post tow weeks after the frame removal. Harry comes once a day to give me a physio session, now he spends more time than when I was on frames. He says the recovery is more important than lengthening for the successful LL. He says my both legs and knees are getting more flexible now, in fact my left toe was a little twisted inside but now I notice getting slightly straight. I have another few weeks more here for the safe, quick recover and I'm very happy to stay.

I also biking twice a day ( now working better), each taking for one hour. this exercise is for circulating the blood inside and formatting the bone structure, Harry says.  From next Monday, He said he will come twice a day for the physio and I'm very looking forward, I will update later again, thx

Hello, Glad you brought up this topic.

Dr. Singari is very good doctor. But he is very busy and he does't come to see you often. Simply because he has no time for you. During my stay, he only came a handful times.. He is a orthopedist surgeon and LL is not his main job, he once told me, "I do LL operation because I want to make people happy" He has a lot of other patients to handle. He simply super busy. Dr. Harry ( physio) is his main man and he handles for your basic needs.

Dr. Harry is a physio. He has PhD on orthopedics and has years of experience working with LL patients, he told me, more than 100 patients. He handles for your every day needs and anything you can ask him. He also says he is very busy and sometimes (or most of times ??) he takes a lot more time than I expect but eventually he gets it done. When everything finishes, I will make a overview of my stay here about everything.

Last Friday, for the first time since the frame removal, I stood up with walker, it was a part of physio secession with Harry. My left legs looked still a little twisted and the right one has difficulty touching on the floor because I have "ballerina" But he said "I make you walk, don't worry, you just relax". I have another few weeks more here and he said starting from tomorrow he comes twice a week.  let's see how things develop, of course I will let you know everything.

this is a X ray which was taken about one week before the frame removal. X ray was taken 4 times in total and this X ray was taken from front angle. The past three X ray was all taken from side angle only. this time I was assuming 7.0 cm or something because the 3rd time of X ray which was taken on 14th July showed right 6.0 cm and left 6.3 cm and since then I have only turned 0.05 mm a day so, reaching over 7.5 cm mathematically doesn't make sense. I guess the 3rd time of X ray was not accurate, In fact I was already a lot more than 6.3 cm, so I would say recommendable to take a shot from front angle as well when u take X ray.

Physio on 24th August

Harry came before the noon for first time of session and later at night around 8 pm for the second time of session. The morning session is for everything, fixing ballerina, knee flexibility... first, I lay down on the bed and he moves, press and pulls my legs.. Then, I stand up with walker and he press my knee and pushes my toe.. this time I walked a little. But still very difficult, when I moved my toe forward, I felt a little pain on my knee but anyway I see this as a great step forward for the full recovery.

The evening session is much more focused on ballerina. I lay down on the bed and he pulls, moves, press my legs. he shows all kinds of his technics. Later I move the edge of the bed and I sit and then he press my knee a kind of hard until my toe touch on the floor, this is painful but I guess it's the pain I have to take if I want to walk normally again. The physio session is pretty intense, he spends a lot more time now.

for the knee flexibility, push your toe on the pillow and hold 10 seconds, a few times you repeat. Also without the pillow, I do this same pushing for easing ballerina.

August 25th

I walked in a shoes using a walker, may be walking is not the word, it's more like dragging my feet, but anyway, I managed to move myself in a short distance. And, the first time my right foot was touching on the floor. I am very pleased..

I remember when I have arrived at Delhi and met Harry, he was definitely taller than myself but now I'm taller than him. It looks like I am more than 170 cm... And he told me I'm not still straight yet, that means I have another a few cm to add myself... I have asked him again the same phrase, you're sure I can walk? and he said "definitely you will"

Around 7:30 pm he came over and gave me exercise, focused more on working on my knees. this is a little painful but the fact that I could touch on the floor this morning looks like has a lot to do with this exercise. Anyway, today outside is very nice, sunny weather and I had a pancake for a breakfast. Pretty soon, I will start a bicycle and morning exercise with Harry starts..

Aug 26th

Day and night Harry came and at both times I walked with a walker. Still very difficult, especially when I step right feet forward, I feel pain on my knee. Nothing dramatic happens one day but a step by step I try things and hopefully gets better day by day.

At night HArry stayed a little longer than usual and we had a dinner together ( Indian chicken, something like curry with chickens) we talked, laughed, watched TV, we had a good time. The day pass very quick with all the exercise and physio secession with Harry,  talk to u later.

Aug 27-28th

Started walking with clutches. Harry is pushing me hard and I'm handling OK. On 27th Harry didn't come in the evening instead he sent his junior. He said he is sick I hope he gets better soon.

Aug 29th.

Today is Indian festival so Harry went back home, that means no physio with him at all all day long. He said he would send me his junior to give the exercises but no walking with clutches allowed. He said he would come back on Sunday evening and give me the exercises.

Also the caretaker boy went back home in the evening yesterday. Here in apartment Harry's junior is staying but he does't make a breakfast and the caretaker boy has not came back yet. He said 10-11 am he would come back. ( already 11: 30 am) I am very hungry..   Last night I was told that his junior would come at 8 pm but came past 9 pm. Why always late?

On 29th August

Harry told me that he would send me his junior TWICE A DAY but his junior came only once in the morning. I was waiting for him in the evening though at night but he never came. He himself said to me in the morning smiling he would come later... May be something happened to him? I don't know but that would have been nice at least if he had called me if he couldn't make it. No call, he just skipped it. HOW POSSIBLE?? WHATS GOING ON HERE??  Very hard to understand for me!!

Hope Harry cut off his holiday early and come this evening. I try to understand that the importance of this Saturday to him but don't let me just lay down on the bed 2 days on straight.......

30th August

Harry didn't come late in the evening. He said he was stuck in the traffic but he sent me his junior so It was no problem for me. I did clutch walking intensively with him and managed to walk more or less OK.

Hello.

No, I can't walk by myself. I'm not well balanced yet and also feel a little scared. Most importantly Harry told me never try without him or his junior being around with me. But I see some improvements on my walking everyday and hopefully I can manage to walk alone when I go back home  :)

31 st August- 1st September

Walked with clutch in the morning. Putting full pressure on my heel with the back on straight. Today made more than 10 rounds in salon ( 20 meters square long) Walking faster and better balanced than yesterday.

In the evening used a walker. Walking with a walker is easier than using clutch for me. Harry tell me don't think just try to walk like normal. well, I'm trying... So far I'm happy with my progress. :D

PS: Hope this week Harry take me to X-ray. ( He says he needs a permission of Dr. Singari.. )

2nd September

Harry came around 11:15 am and this time I walked with a walker. Harry always tell me look up and put more pressure on the heel with your back straight, try to walk normal. I did a lot of walking as usual. 

Harry told me tomorrow I have a X-ray and he will take me somewhere outside  :D

Looking good G., how is your ballerina? How much is it in centimetres?

Your balance is going to come back, just give it a little bit more time. I had the same thing post lengthening when started to walk(and it was my brain obviously confused).

Good to hear things are getting better and that physio is going good. If you don't feel confident on crutches use walker instead. You need to be careful cause your bones are still prone to fractures.

I bet you can't wait to go outside :) haha, It's like Christmas when you finally can go out post lengthening :)

Sep 3rd

Hello,

Yes, my ballerina is getting better, the left ankle is no ballerina, the right one is a little tight ( a few mm off the floor) but, if I put 80 to 90% of my weight then touch on the floor.

This morning I had a X ray and Harry told me my callus is very good. I saw the X ray and the gap is almost covered by callus, white particles. I'm very happy now  :D

Today I waled a lot outside using a walker. Yes I feel a lot morel balanced and comfortable with walker than using clutch. I walked really a lot but very carefully and slowly. When I walk I still feel some pains around my knees. I wish I could walk a lot faster in coming few days.
Outside was super hot!   Next time I need to wear glasses.

PM 4 September

Harry came late in the evening and spent much more time than as usual for compensating the skipped morning sessions. As usual, I made couples of rounds with walker and clutches. I was walking a little faster as Harry told me to do so. And also for some time I walked not using walker nor clutches but by grabbing Harry's shoulder for a couple of rounds and later by holding Harry's hand. This means I was putting almost full pressure on my both legs. Harry told me I could because my callus was pretty good. But still when I make a step putting a full pressure on either of legs, I feel the pain around the knee, something like holding or pressing, that makes me a little difficult to walk normally but Harry told me that I did all right for today and tomorrow we try again  :D

Seems like people here always comes late. Never make it on time. Not saying 5 minutes, 10 minutes or 15 minutes of being late, I mean they come really really late!! One hour, one and hour hours, sometimes just skip it all, hard to believe from my country's perspective. ???

The caretaker boy out of city today for his personal reasons, somebody should be coming bringing with my dinner. It's already 10 past 9 and not sure when I can have my dinner.. Did u tell me you would come at 8. ???

Again Harry didn't come this evening. He just keep sending his junior. Have to tell me tomorrow come 2 a day as initially agreed.

7 September

Looks like my left legs are badly twisted in this picture. I have asked about this to Harry and he said yes my left ankle is a little twisted but only a little, not more and moreover, he said that the more I walk the more straight it gets. He said the nail is straight so it's impossible to have my legs twisted, it takes some time but eventually it gets straight. I think in this picture I was putting a lot of pressure on the left leg and at this time my left ankle was still tight so it looked like that. That pics was taken some days ago and I will try to update the latest one.

Right now I am walking with walker only as a support, putting a full pressure on the both legs. I am taller than Harry and now happy with my height. However It looks like impossible to go back home with clutch free but harry told me that I will be able to walk in a few weeks time. In the past few days I have been walking quite a lot outside with the assistance of Harry, walking faster but in the stairs it is still difficult.

Hello guys

It's been busy days for sorting things out, getting things back to normal. The fact is I'm already back home. Now is the time for a little bit of update. The current my condition is that I am walking with elbow clutches. On the daily basis, I am doing the self-exercises twice a day following a piece of paper Harry has gave to me which describes all the exercises I need do by myself. The next week or so I will stick with these ex and Harry told me that he will send me the new paper later on.

Here is the overview of my LL in India

The lengthening achieved
7.9 cm
Current condition
・Walking with elbow clutches
・Slightly having ballerina on the right foot (will be eased down soon according to Harry)
The duration of stay
5 months
The total amount spent (the personal expense not included )
17.000 USD 

From my experience in my opinion in terms of the surgery and physio treatment this place is a top class but in terms of the service and hospitality there are some room for improvements. I can not say every thing was easy and smooth. However with the lengthening target I have achieved and the cost I have spent as well as the current my condition considered, overall I am very happy with the decision I have made that I have traveled to India for LL. 

Of course It's still too early to conclude that I had successful LL, I have still a lot of work to do. Remember, I CAN'T STILL WALK WITHOUT CLUTCHES. I am only walking WITH CLUTCHES. I will update time to time how things would get improved. But I am confident by following the Harry's description the day I can walk normally wont be far away, in fact I am expecting in a few weeks or so I am working normally and properly.

Here is the pics taken a few days ago, about the claim of twisted left ankle, Harry told me the the nail is straight ( you can see that in X ray) so the feet being twisted is impossible. The problem is the ankle, because the ankle is a little tight the feet looks twisted but the more walk and exercise I do, the ankle will be tender and the feet will be more straight, according to HArry.

looking good !! I hope everything getting better.  You finally home and relax in your own comfort home :).  Not only that, u must be tired of Indian foods.  You can get all those Yakiniku and udon haha.  I just wondering how much your weight before surgery and how much you weight now because your leg look really skinny now.


Title: Re: Dr. Sringari at Jane hospital in India in April 2015 -Gakinotukai
Post by: Gakinotukai on September 21, 2015, 04:05:35 AM

Still continue walking with clutches but the pace is getting faster and more smooth. It has been about 10 days after coming back home. Once tried walking without clutches and manages to make a few steps but lasted only a few steps... Will ask Harry soon if I should try not to use clutches and to walk alone instead.

No wonder I have lost some weight. In fact I am 7 kg less now before the LL when I was 8.0 shorter... Trying to eat well balanced foods everyday and get some more weight.

Hey brother,
It's me from the guest house.  I started lengthening myself now.  I just wanted to say your doing awesome and recovering so well and fast for having done 8 cm.  that's the result of you working hard on your PT and listening to Harry. 


Title: Re: Dr. Sringari at Jane hospital in India in April 2015 -Gakinotukai
Post by: Gakinotukai on September 29, 2015, 02:21:22 PM

Good to hear from you bro. I assume you're already about 5 mm taller by now. :D Like everybody says LL is a mental journey and It may be a little difficult being alone in guesthouse but you'll be just fine as me and other patient who with me before and we keep in touch in whatsapp.

Update:
Still walking with clutches and also doing all the exercises Harry told me to. It's been about 3 weeks after coming back and I supposed to be receiving new assigned exercises. Already told Harry to send me one and he said he will but still have not.. Hope to receive a new task and make a swift recovery...

In the picture, it looks like your right knee (the one on the left in the picture) is higher up than the other knee. Is that actually the case?

Post by: Ike on September 30, 2015, 03:08:26 AM
You can tell by looking at it and the fact his standing straight that's not the case. The reason it might seem like that to you is because one of his legs maintain more muscle mass then the other which is common in LL because usually the side of your body you use more tends to be stronger.


Title: Re: Dr. Sringari at Jane hospital in India in April 2015 -Gakinotukai
Post by: MiracleGrow on September 30, 2015, 02:13:21 PM
One can stand straight even with uneven leg lengths. But the kneecaps do look like they're different heights in the picture.  Maybe it's because of the camera angles or the muscle contraction, but I just wanted to ask about it.

Thank you for sharing your brief, very descriptive diary and entertaining diary. 

Do you have any regrets or concerns about lengthening 7. 9 cm?

How would you overall rate the physical therapy you received? Scale 1-10

I will be doing my femurs with Dr.  Betz but as you already know it is very expensive.  I was wondering if I could actually go to India just to do my physical therapy.  Since its a bargain compared to Germany. 

Thank you in advance for your service

Hello Devil,
Was informed by Harry that I have received a new post and it's good to have been said that my diary helping you. No, no regret at all. Of course I was a little scared for that much lengthening when I knew I did, but I'm happy with my height now and most importantly I'm walking, well not still normally but this is about two and half months post frame removal and I think my condition is not that bad.

Harry is a good physio. He's got skill and well experienced too. I trusted in him and now I'm happy with my recovery. He spent more time with me after frame removal and gave good physio. But sometimes he didn't come for me, sometimes not even telling me in advance. When that happened I was upset. Anyway, you should contact to Harry and discuss your issue and make sure what kinds of physio treatment you can receive.

Yes there must be. I mean I still can't walk normally. I have to watch out every steps I make. And also my right ankle is still a little tight so difficult to walk. Well, What I meant is I am going up and down in stairs, I mean a simple walk in stairs. Harry told me thats good exercises. thanks

Hey.. How are you Gaki.. ?? Hope recovery is going well.. But am really concerned about the long run effects of LL. Say, from the age of 35..when bones very slowly starts to weaken..and by 40 or 45.. When bones starts to weaken shows its pain and effects. Hope u getting my point.. Also there is no such diary of any patient in this regard that i can trace in this forum.

What you say only applies if you don't take care of your bones and also most people will have their bones completely healed before reaching that age so the affects of age will affect your bones just the same as someone who has never done ll. Bone is bone after all is not like LL bones are different.

Hello,

This is how I walk right now. The pace is faster and I think I am walking a lot better than the last time of clip. But looking at this video I noticed that the right leg looks a little twisted inward. Hope this goes away eventually. Actually am still feeling a little discomfort on the right leg. This one also hope to be away soon. Am walking twice a day each for about an hour and also cycling. Will update more sometime soon.

Your walking has improve a lot. I'm just worry about the about your right leg.Hopefully, it get better soon. You should contact Harry or local doctor to see what's the problems is. Maybe someone in this forum can provide some assistance if you have a current update of your leg's X-ray.

Your diary has been a huge inspiration to me, mate! I am considering Dr.  Sringari for my Limb Lengthening sometime next year!

He seems to be a good surgeon and takers good care of his patients! I am planning to o 5. 1 centimetres in the tibia. 

How's your recovery going?

Hi.. One more thing noteceable from the video is that it seems like ur left foot is bended.. And also i dont know y but if u noticed or not..  ur legs inside the jeans are just ur legs but it looks like something with sharp edges is there around ur legs which makes the jeans sharp from outside also..
Also please upload a video in which u r not practising to walk but walking like normal person as in this video ur hands are straight like someone does a parade.. So put in a video walking normally..
Thanks in advance.

Hello guys

Let me do the quick update. About the twisted leg, I will try to take the video and update it sometime soon. I think it says it all. Let me say one thing though that the leg cant be twisted. I have taken X ray and all of it showed the straight bone. I have seen it in X ray! May be it looks twisted because of some other issues like the muscle or tight ankle (getting better though) I don't know.. Harry told me before as I walk more It gets all normal but it takes some time. Anyway Important things is that I am very happy now to be 8 cm up.  ;)

aspergersguy
Good to know you considering India. I'm sure my friend Harry will good take care of you. Clearly you can't expect 5 stars hotel services with the amount you pay but you'll get taller with no complications that's almost for sure. (of course you have a lot of work to do though)

thanks

Hello, Attached, this is how I walk right now.

Sent this video beforehand to Harry and he said my walking is getting more natural and it is only matter of time for me to be walking perfectly normal.  Finally with this video this would be my final update here and my big appreciation goes to Harry, Doctor, two of other LL  guys and everybody who supported me in India. I'm very happy man ;)

Hi Gaki,

Great videos and xray looks very good.   When I made me decision and contacted dr.  sringari on Sep2015 I was reading your journey.   It gave me a very clear picture.   No matter how many times you read past diaries, you always need a current ongoing diaries to have a final push to yourself.   At least I needed a current one. 

I got operated and currently in the next room to yuu.  . 

Thank you!

Hi Gaki,

Post 12 days after initial surgery how your legs felt? My right leg is ok (I feel lighter and move it freely).  But my left leg is tighter.

Thanks

Hello guys

It's been long time since my final update and this one most likely to be the last. I was advised that me updating the latest video may help those who considering for LL with Dr. Sringari and of course why not. OK, I stop talking and loom at the video.

(http://i304.photobucket.com/albums/nn171/lenox39/th_002_zpszsto9eqe.mp4) (http://i304.photobucket.com/albums/nn171/lenox39/002_zpszsto9eqe.mp4)

this is about post 11 months after the surgery and I would be extremely happy if I knew back then that I would be walking this much at this time (seriously) Yes,I have still some stiffness or discomfort on the left leg but only a little, not much. And Harry is with me still and I am following his advice on the exercises.

The LL already became the past story and my life is well under way already. Just updating on this, a lot of memory came back when I was updating in India and also when I was doing all the research back home with all the excitement and fear mixed. Again, I would be really  happy if my diary would help those who considering this.

Let me add one more thing, I have to say this. I may be saying too much like I'm happy and for some it may sound it was a easy ride but it wasn't. it wasn't at all (you can see my past pages am already wrote it) my diary is all the fact based believe me. Okay I'm done.

Oh and forgot to ask, do you feel like you have ever done LL?

Good to see that you are doing well Gakinotukai!  ;D
would love to see some videos.
i am considering LL with Dr. SRINGARI in coming 6 months. 

i would like to ask you a couple of questions-

1)How much time prior to the surgery date will i have to book with Dr. Sringari?

2)Is there an option to stay in a Hotel room/ Private room? or do we only have the option to stay in a shared room in the guesthouse?

3) your LL journey seems to be a successful one.  What percentage of Sringari's patients do you think have had a successful journey ?(meaning reasonably timely recovery,no major complications and no additional operations required)

would really appreciate your feedback,
fightforit

Check this out. Now Harry will take more control on the whole process of LL.
He said he will improve the quality of service. I'm impressed..

Hello,

I don't know if people still reading my diary but anyway I have some news to tell.

I was informed by Harry himself a few days ago the following:

・Harry left Dr. Sringari, so from now on, If somebody consider for LL with the assistance of Harry should contact to Harry directly.
Harry will introduce you a new doctor ( well-experienced one in the area of LL)
・The payment should be done to Harry,not to a doctor. Then, Harry to handle EVERYTHING about LL (surgery, accommodation, food, physio, etc)
・The whole price used to be $14,000, but now Harry is considering the price to be lowered to $13,000.

I had the surgery in the spring of 2015. Now I'm perfectly walking normal. (the detail of my LL experience read the diary)

Any questions, ask to Harry (+91 95608 67721) whatsapp also available.
thanks for all.

Hi Gakinotukai, how are you?
i am following MMT from last 4year and made my mind to go for it, but now i am confused about the doctor.  As you write that Harry is not working with Dr. Sringari who used to take care about most of stuffs of the patients as you mentioned him in your dairy and there is no new update of any patient of Dr.  sringari.  Whom should i consider because i wanted to do this as early as possible.

Hello, just quick update. I took a CT scan and that showed the full recovery of broken legs. Actually the bone ( callus) was fully connected a long before and I knew it but the reason I took the X ray is that I wanted to remove the nail. that's why I took it. But, with not much data collected, I could not go for the removal surgery this time... May be I ask more to Dr. Sringari or I go to India to remove the nail.. I don't know yet and no rush.

Anyway, My life is back to normal, even a lot better with decent job, girlfriends, etc....   thx to all.
