Did you go to the gym or anything like that prior? Did you notice (besides being weaker, of course) unnatural strains or other that you had never felt prior-- did it go away?

Also, would you be able to post a picture of the scarring that has since taken place?

I wasn't so disciplined about going to the gym prior to the surgery. From watching other ppl, I came to a conclusion that if I build some muscles I'll look shorter. However, I was allowed to go to the gym 9 months after the initial surgery date. Usually, add two months after removal of fixator.

From my experience and also Dr.Paley's observation, you need 1month for each 1cm you lengthen. Thus, you can go fast by lengthening 1 mm a day or go slow to 0.7 mm a day but you in general need 1 mo for each 1 cm. Thus, go slow and don't' rush your body. By going slow, mostly I wasn't feeling pain nor strain afterward. Some area in stretching my arm is still little bit tight and that's normal. Just keep stretching. Finally, my Arm is not weak by all means. I'm doing same normal things as before surgery. The muscles definition looks amazing at the moment with stretched muscles.  

Scars 14 moths later ( with almost daily oil therapy care)

Wow your scar looks like it was from a minor cut! I have worse scars from getting hit with a paintball at point blank! (It was on my butt lol)

Do you think it would be too much to get a zoomed OUT view of your arm? You could easily keep your identity hidden. I just want to see the whole of your arm and how this surgery has affected it. Thank you so much, your diary is great!

@Arche

The scars are very noticeable however, the appearance has improved and will improve with time.  The is the best shot I can provide. I hope it helps.

Hey man thanks anyways.

But here's the thing: would you ever get arm surgery voluntarily? For example, if you lengthened your legs too much from surgery would you get your arms lengthened to compensate? There are a lot of people on this forum now getting 10+ cm of total lengthening, and I just wanted to know your view on this. Also, is your arm back to normal strength? Can you do this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qEwKCR5JCog

Thank you for helping out.

Well, I'd do it if the surgery is absolutely necessary due to proportion issue. The only things that would make the decision a difficult one are two things: 1. who is the surgeon 2.  living with two external fixators. However, I think in the near future, AL would be a very easy job with internal nails. This step would make a huge difference for people to consider. I also think it can be done nowadays but many surgeons are not interested or challenged enough to tap into this area of cosmetic surgeries. 

with regard to arm strength, I'm 100% back to pre-surgery strength. nothing lost in the process  Wink

Just to add some perspectives.

I wasn't boxing prior to the surgery nor doing any bodybuilding stuff. Thus, I answered based on my own feeling and judgment to where i stand after lengthening less than 8 cm. Dr. Paley told me that he can clear me to start bodybuilding 2-months after removing the fixator. Remember that the fixator stayed for almost 7-months attached to my arm. The longer you lengthen, the longer the period needed for full consolidation. Dr. Paley rule of thumb is 1-month for each 1cm you lengthen.

To be more specific on the 100 % strength claim; 10 push ups before the surgery == 10 push ups after recovery.
