Dear sysop, I have not explore that far with dr Guichet on internal tibia. I am open to the idea to do it with dr betz if dr Guichet path does not pan out. Is there any patient who has done ll with both drs ? Aiming for 2016 hopefully. Will see. Don wish to get too old for this sort of things as widely discussed. The earlier u do it, the better it is to a certain extent. Would also like to find out more about precise meanwhile

I know two patients who did femurs with Guichet and tibias with Betz, I will reach out to them and see if I can get them to contact you. Cheers.

What was your starting height adidas?

Hi shortkid, did 7 cm. 165 to 172. Did anyone know that the price of nail removal with Dr Guichet has increased since he shifted to Milan?
It used to be stated in his documents and website with LLC as around 7.3 to 7.5k Euros. Now it is 13-15k Euros! Sad I talked to him and he said there is nothing he can do about it. Has anyone done nail removal with Dr G in Milan and were you charged this amount? will really appreciate your pm or reply here.

13k euros for a nail removal?
Ridiculous price.
Go to another doctor, nail removal is nothing special for an experienced doctor.

Hi Everyone,

I had my nail removal a few days back
The picture is not taken very clearly but basically just a reference for you. There will be some void left by the nail and screws. It should be regenerated in time to come.

Q.Can I remove my nails later than 1.5 years?

A. The average recommended time for nail removal is between 1.5 to 2 years. Mine was around 3.75 years. It is still possible. I was however warned that there is remote chance of corrosion the longer one waits.

Q. What is the timeline like in general?

A. Pay in advance to secure a date.
Arrival; 1st day pre-op check and test
2nd day ops,
In theory, the 3rd day you can check out. I stayed an additional day as a buffer.

Q. Do I need crutches post ops?

A. No. Nobody will stop you from doing so though.

Q. Should I walk a lot post ops?

A. Movement is encouraged but do not over exert yourself. It is still an operation after all. Cycling is possible.

Q What to expect in general?

A. My right leg feels good. Almost the same before removal. Hematoma is minimal. The left is not as good. More hematoma with swollen hip. Pain is managed through pain killers. Your walking gait may or may not be perfect but okay in general. I expect it to get better in time.

Q. Can I walk immediately after ops?

A. In theory you should be able to after the nacosis wears off. For me, it was around 3-4 hours after my ops. My gait was not entirely normal as my left leg was bothering me. My right leg felt good.

hi I was thinking of doing this but I didn't know it would be possible to do so with 2 different surgeons.  Can you ask them to contact me as well if it's not a bother? Thanks.
