I'm not sure how to create my own thread but I am wondering two things
1.  If you have chronic muscles tightness issues that are fairly hard, would that make you a bad candidate for LL

also

2.  Has anyone ever considered a 1-3 inch prosthesis that is like a skin colored heel cup? seems like if that was around it might be a viable thing.

SysOp, I'm a tibia LON veteran, had the surgery with Muharrem Inan and I have a really serious problem.  My fixator is removed but there is a 1 cm discrepancy between my legs.  My right leg is lengthened 1 cm more compared to the left.  I'm really angry because of this unprofessional mistake.

 Could please open me a diary so that I can share my experiences and get some help about my problems.

I've opened a new thread so you can talk about it.

My height is 177-76 (in the morning) 175-74,5 at night after 6 cm on tibias.
My wingspan is 166.

I know my wingspan is very short compared to my height but looks completely normal.

The LL procedure tooks me 20 months.  Left leg I've lengthen 9. 5 and right leg 8. 2 cm.
I think that some milimeters went to the fixator not to the bones.
20 months is long period of time but now I don't have any problem with walking without cruthes.
I dont't have any complications.  I can walk upstairs and downstairs naturally.  It looks normal and natural when I'm walking.
I will wait some tme until I will try to run because I'm careful.

The world belongs to the courageous ;-)

I live in EU, 900 km from Frankfurt.  When dr.  Salameh was in Frankfurt I came to the Germany
to visit him by car.  A half way I was driving and a half way my colleague was driving. 
So it's not a problem to drive a car with fixators.

My lengthening phase took 9 months, from april 2016 to 20 december 2016.  I did 8. 2 cm.
I was lengthening slow and streching a lot so I have very litle BF and KB.
In the 23 january 2017 I visited dr.  Salameh in Frankfurt and he noticed that my
left leg is shorther than right leg. 
It was shorther from the begining but I didn't know about it.
So he recommend me to lengthen left leg additional 1 cm.
I have started to lengthen left leg again (only left leg).  I was lengthening very very slow,
only 0. 2 mm per day because my calves was very hard.  During the lengthening left leg
additional 1 cm little BF and KB was developing again.
I was streching a lot so I could walk on flat shoes.  I was using only 1 crutch.

In the begining of march 2017 I noticed that my left foot had internal rotation.
I visited dr.  Salameh in Frankfurt and he told me that this is because of left fibula bone preconsolidation.
I need additional surgery to cut left fibula again and correct this rotation.
When I came back to home I had leg length equal and I started the consolidation phase.
I was streching a lot and my muscles was more flexible.

In the begining of june 2017 I've sent dr.  Salameh my new X-Rays and he decided
to remove bottom parts of my fixators.

In october 2017 dr.  Schmidt removed 4 screws from my bomes because my bones was good.

And today (3 january 2018) dr.  Schmids removed all my screws and fixators from my leg.

I'm a very happry person now and more self-confident.

I have a lot photos but there is a problem to paste a links to this photos.

Hi hakunamatata55,

Wow.  That's only a fraction of the cost of what doctors in America would charge.  Have a safe journey and keep us all posted.  Happy New Year.
