Hey guys

Ronne just emailed me back yesterday and it's a go for the surgery.

I've scheduled it for this coming Friday


@luffy: I still have some ballerina after I wake up but a minute of standing or two seems to be enough stretching. Though whenever I sit down for prolonged times (like a 2 hour car ride for example), it tends to come back. Nothing big. You just can't stand and walk normally immediately. What I do is I stand and act like I'm stretching my back lol

@deus ex: nope my bone hasn't fully consolidated yet but the screw needs to be removed. The blood markers i kept on getting were very "inconsistent" (doc's words). It would show signs bordering on infection but it wasn't really infected, etc.

Regarding the surgery itself, my doc and Ronne mentioned something about the lone screw being able to support the weight since my bone has consolidted enough (lucky for me yay) so the removal of the affected one shouldn't be a problem. In other words, no replacement; just the old "simple cut in and remove irritant screw" routine


@earl25: hey earl. Personally, given my timeframe there (I was just out of college), I would've stayed there till my bone had fully consolidated. No rods no nothing; just old school frames and then after the lengthening, wait it out. Why? The frames are much, much stronger than the rods and with them still on, you can do any kind of correction you would want done as opposed to the rods; when they go in, that's that.

Hey that's "my" 2 cents. I know not a lot of people can afford (talking about time, not money) to stay that long


Will update this after suegery and shiz

But if you stay the whole time in Beijing wouldn't the cost add and then Beijing would cost the same as Betz or dr m in the USA?

Thanks Ilike8cm

I really haven't done the math but probably, though you forget, in china you're surrounded by doctors and nurses 24/7, not to mention the support group of other patients.

You lie in bed the whole day, doing your own stuff while chefs and maid's bring your food, wash your clothes, handle your groceries, etc.

Now it's really up to you but I'm just saying, in my case, would've rather stayed.

Cheers People of the Bone

Thanks tall4all



Again in a hurry so short and sweet


Surgery done and i feel okay.

To cut it short, I now have my right lower screw missing (I have an X-ray but it's such a pain posting photos here. Wish you could just upload stuff and not have to link it to some photo sharing site haha)

I'll "maybe" post it when I don't feel so lazy though truth be told, just imagine the usual X-rays you see with rods minus the screw

Still some pain but that's cause of the wound. Feels awesome that the screw is out. Doc said when he opened me up, the scar tissues that developed around the screw site started hitting the nerves- that was the cause of the pain and swelling / inflammation.

there ya go, just a quick update. Now I have to do my own stuff. Back to the real world people

Cheers!

Hi Roc,

Thanks for the great diary! I have a question:

Did you get calf hypertrophy with LL? Do you know if it is permanent? My calves are much thinner than my thighs and so I would appreciate the extra muscle in the calves.

Thanks!

Hi Roc,

Thanks!

I'm not sure where the idea comes from that LL on tibias can cause calf hypertrophy.   You are more likely to get the opposite.   First, humans lose a huge amount of muscle mass in a short period of time; even being bedridden for as little as seven days can cause significant muscle atrophy, so you can imagine what six months of lying in a bed 23 hours a day can do for you.   Second, during lengthening your calves are of course being stretched lengthwise so they will (all things being equal) reduce in diameter.
In my own experience, since my LL my calves have returned to probably 80% of their former size.   It's difficult to say, because it's difficult to remember.

AHAHAHAHAHAHAAHA.  i got to say this journal is very interesting like how roc introduces new characters like the kid with the PS3.  Roc did u happen to play COD with your friends at beijing? great time killer wouldn't it be.  And thanks everyone for telling me how it is getting leg lengthening.  I know it is a excruciating process but from what i've read all you guys seem like awesome people and it makes me feel that i won't be journeying alone if i decide to do LL  :-X . 
O yea one question.  if i do LL will i be able to lift weights afterwards because i want to get an awesome body.

Hi guys, long time no check in. It's been some time since my experience and to answer just a few questions:

I've heard of calf hypertrophy but personally haven't experienced it. I have chicken legs now so that's sad.

Regarding lifting weights, yeah of course. Avoid putting undue stress to your legs though; I think I slightly bowed my legs by simply walking too soon.

Lastly, I'm going to visit back soon. I cant seem to reach Ronne though, anybody have her number?

Cheers guys and to everybody in Beijing right now, ill see you soon!

No - give us a real update!!

Can you run, jump? Stretch problems? Ballerina? Pain? Ache? Fully flexible as one should or do you even care?

How much can you pull your feet up?

At what percentage do you believe your back at as you were before?

Chill man, don't get your panties up in a bunch hahaha.

Im provably around 70%

I could be wrong but I have this fear that running might bow my legs. Don't know if my bones have fully healed yet. really need ronne's number here.... after my check up then ill update!

Been busy guys. After this, life just goes on. I think my friends know something but hey, aside from a trusted few, let them think eh? I'm using my phone to update. It's really tiresome. Im also working so not in the mood.  Grin

As a final note for now to those curious, of course I'm happy with my new height

Eric, I too messaged Dr.  Xia and received no response.   Frustrating. . . as he is the only doctor on the recommended list with an affordable price.

Crazy man. I still try not to put pressure on my rods, so I don't even jog, let alone play basketball and all that haha. Glad to hear you're doing well.

I hope I can take my rods out soon. Will take an X-ray soon Smiley
