Good stuff thanks for sharing your experience and information with us.

Happy to help with information other than LL.
I know many LL vets want to explore doing AL for different reasons and I hope my diary has shed some lights on a real experience with an excellent doctor. I'll be always here to help Smiley

Depending on how much one lengthens, AL may necessarily follow. The information you provided is priceless!

Hey x10.

I am 26 and in a similar situation that you were in.  I have one arm (humerus) that is 11cm's shorter than the other.  I am at a stage now where I can get the surgery done (private healthcare will cover it in Australia as I have waited the appropriate period) but I am still hesitant.  I have only found one other case study and it doesn't have a lot of information.  I am wondering if you have a before and after view of your arm where you are able to see the change in length (ie from shoulder to elbow).

My loss of length was caused from Osteomilitis at 8 months of age.  Have you had any problems with your shoulder joint? As a result of having one arm shorter my body has compensated and my shoulder has dropped and my shoulder joint is severely damaged.  I still have full movement, which always baffles the doctors but that is another story.

The part I am worried about is that I am a carpenter and I won't be able to work at all.  So to clarify, you were back to 100% strength 9 months after the original operation?

Thank you for your diary, it is great to read a success story.

If you do Humerus with up to 7 cm gain , you won't experience any ROM issue on your wrist and honestly,  I don't know what would happen if you exceed 7 Cm.

I don't have before and after photos but you'll definitely see the difference and love it  Wink

I do have some very minor limitations on the shoulder ROM from birth. However, they're very unnoticeable.

With regard to recovery time. every person is different but you should know the rule of thumb of "1 months for every 1 cm gained". if you want to resume normal hand usage shortly after lengthening, then I'd recommend that your doctor inserts a normal fracture nail.

Good luck on your surgery

Hi, are your scars very noticable?

If someone plan humerus lengthening for cosmetic reason(because of disproportion) and he ony want to lengthen 2 cm on each upper arm, what do you think how long does it take for hin/her about to be 100 % recovered?

As I said, recovery time varies and depends on many factors. The bone itself can recover in a period of 1 month for every Cm. However, recovery entails regaining normal Range of motion (ROM). So if you go easy on Physical Therapy (PT) , then you would need more time to recover from the surgery.

Final note, I personally think that planing a surgery to gain less than 5 CM does not worth the sufferings. Good luck
