Actually, he's 70 years old, and he's still lengthening - he has about another month left.   He is Betz's oldest patient to date, and Betz told me he is one of his best.  He can walk almost normally (no duck-ass) and he has virtually no pain.  Patients more than half his age can't hold a candle next to him.   He also one of the the nicest people I've met here at Lebach.

I guess the 69 year old never told you guys that he really did not want to be mentioned on any discussion boards. 
BTW BadBoy it was nice meeting you there.  How are your plans coming along?

Hi Topshelf,

It was good meeting you too.  I've been w/ him everyday since I got here, and we regularly discuss information gleaned from this forum all the time.  We've become very close, and I know him very well.  I think his anonymity is safe, but I'll let him know tonight when I see him for dinner that he was mentioned.  I'm sure he'll be ok. 

Plans are proceeding.  I've paid the fee, and will be joining your ranks as a veteran in the very immediate future.

Good luck on your recovery.

Ok, I asked his permission via D a while back and he was quite clear to me.
So you are back in Germany?  Do you have surgery scheduled? 
Of all the people I met there, I think this is really going to change you so much for the better.  BadBoy is a confident, intelligent, good looking guy (no homo) and will be even better with a couple of inches of more height.  You are gonna kick ass, good luck and keep in touch.

No worries.  He is intensely private, but Betz talks about him (especially his age) to every prospective patient. However, I'm not going to divulge any more identifying info about him in this forum.

Wow, thanks very much for the compliments - I really appreciate the encouragement as I'm nervous as hell.  Yes, I'm back in Germany, and I'm locked and loaded for surgery in a couple days.  I took your advice and paid extra for a private hospital room, so I don't have to deal with snorers.

Excellent, I just hope there is a private room available.  Good for you, and good luck again.  It is a long road ahead but I know you have planned well.
How long will you stay?
Yes, Betz is proud of this patient, I thought he was making a mistake operating on him, but obviously he knows better than I.
Don't do that Skin Wave thing, waste of money and time.

Thanks for bringing up the 70 year old LL'er. That's very good inspiration. Although I am 42 and I have never for one second changed my mind about having LL, I find it very inspiring hearing about 70 year olds out there having this surgery. My only regret though is not having this surgery much much sooner..to reap the full benfit of being taller. I am just very grateful I have been aging very well (so far)..and so it's never too late to have LL and the desire to be taller never does go away.

Thanks Topshelf. Betz confirmed a private room for me today, so I guess I lucked out.  I'm planning to stay about a month just like you, and then finish clicking back home. But my return date is open-ended, so I'm not leaving until I can easily click independently.

Yeah, I remember the Skin Wave thing that Betz took us to.  I was skeptical, and I remember it was too painful for D.

Galaxystar, 42 years is not old at all!  There is currently a female patient in her 50s that I'm sure I'll be meeting soon.

I've come to learn that age is not as important a determinant for success as a positive attitude from the start, even if you run into complications.  I met Tasmin, a beautiful young woman, who ran into a lot of rare complications that would faze most patients, but you would never know it if you see her - she is just always so cheerful and happy (search for her postings in this forum).  It has been my privilege to have met some of the most positive people in the planet here that span the entire age range, and they have all been supportive, encouraging and non-judgmental.  I will be drawing on their positive energy as I embark on my own LL journey in two days.

I'm undecided as I think it would be redundant to what has already been written.  I may share specific experiences or insights only if they differ from or haven't been covered in the existing diaries.

badboy, I think I can speak for all future LLers when I say that no diary addition is redundant. Everyone has a unique POV.
Plus, as many veterans have mentioned, it can be quite therapeutic for the person undergoing LL and you can at the same time draw support and cheers from this forum. But of course it's up to you and I wish you the very best!

I'm 19 as well and I would say there's an 80% shot at me getting LL done before I'm 25 :)

22, turning 23 soon.  Currently in the process of applying for jobs, as I am fresh out of college.  Hopefully I can save for an entire year and go ahead with the operation before I turn 24, so I can enjoy the rest of my 20s.
