Stay strong the pair of you at Volgograd, I cant belive that incompetant idiot.
No way in hell that Im seting my foot in that place, Ill do my LL in kurgan instead.
Thanks for sharing your experience with us good look to the both of you. . .

Please donít get the wrong ideas 177cm.

Volgograd is definitely not a bad or unsuited place to go through a LL-experience, it just needs sometimes improvements in practical terms.
Regardless about the incompetence of Dr. Tsarkov sometimes has, Dr. Barinov is still an expert in his field and very professional.
 
And thank you for yours words, I really appreciate it.  Smiley

Did you know that on the Kurgan website http://www.ilizarovheightincrease.com/procedure.html there is a pic of a female LL patient who they state did a total of 14 cm (tibs, then femurs) via Ilizarov method?   Truth is she is a Betz patient who did a total of 20 cm (femurs, then tibs) via internal method.   

Also on that website is a pic of the guy smiling with his leg on the table.  Interestingly that exact pic can be found on Dr Rozbruch's (of New York) website. 

Something to think about...

The third picture of a 35 year old man who lengthened by 5cm is Volgograd patient. I've seen his picture with his face uncovered in Volgograd portfolio.

Kamui,

My Goodness, how are you? I am soooo glad to hear from you. Please update us with your progress. Will you be coming back to Volgograd for frame removal? Can you walk without crutches? You can private message me if you like.  Smiley

Thank you for sharing Legs7. Many future patients will find these infos very helpful. I am glad that you are already done with LL. Congratulations and God bless!

Thank you too for your support. Overall this experience was not too bad. I just wish they prescribed me stronger painkillers like tramadol or similar to that and wish they've employed more experienced and tactful assistants. But thank God, I am done with LL now and can't wait to go back to my husband who's been so supportive throughout my journey and whom I love lots and lots.

That guy does have a strange way with words.

I hope you are happy with the results and feel good about what you see in the mirror, cause at the end of the day that is all that matters. 

Hi Craig, yes I am happy with the result. I just wanted to say to you big THANK YOU for pointing out that my legs were X shape. I was at the hospital when I started my leg correction under Dr.Tsarkov's care. For some reason he's got an impression that I wanted an X-leg and told a lie to Dr.Barinov that I insisted on turning more in order to achieve X legs. It is a total and utter lie. The only thing I wanted my legs to be straight. I never ever said to him I wanted my legs to be X and he never mentioned that they became X or that I've overcorrected. Dr.Barinov confirmed that my legs are X after you pointed it out to me and agreed to correct them. Now, I believe, my legs are straight.

This is how my legs are looking now

That doctors assistant there in Volograd is really off his rocker if you ask me.

Well you are most certainly welcome.  I knew right away that it was off like 5 degrees.  Your legs look good now.  This is a good lesson to all, sometimes the doctor is not right.  Not everything can be judged by the x-ray.  Sometimes one needs to step back and look at the overall dynamics of the legs.  Your X-legs were caught at a good time as you were able to correct it still.  When all the swelling goes down, your legs will look even better. 

I am still very cautious about this place, that he wasn't able to pick up the X-Legs without you pointing it out to him.  And I still do wonder of other patients esp the girl in pink jacket.  Either way, your legs look good and you got what you wanted so it all worked out.

That assistant sounds like a total arrogant pain in ass.  Even then though, for clarification, it would only take 1 min for the doctor to ask you , "you want your legs like an X?"  Rather than not bring it up.

Thank you, Dookieman. Sometimes I think I should have lengthened a bit more, but 6 pin breaks, my weak condition, ineffective painkillers took its toll on me. I've lost so much weight and was completely exhausted.
Nevertheless, I grew a bit taller. Starting height was 166,5 and now I am 171 when measured in my frames. So, I am kind of happy that I was able to achieve even these few cms.

6 pin breaks?  WTF? 

On the pain killers, you are totally in the right.  Doctors and nurses tend to have no idea how painful LL is, I mean most doctors in orthopedics have never even had a broken bone let alone know what it is like to do LL.  Through the real pain, strong pain killers are virtually the only way to survive. 

To date, I think LB was the only person to basically go through the entire first week without painkillers and he talks about it like it was hell.

If you measured 171cm with frames on, chances are that when your frames are off and you can put your legs together, combined with a good rest, your actual height might be more, maybe like 172cm. 

6 pin breaks is not acceptable.  The entire design of the lizarov is that it has suspension, pins should not be breaking all the time.

Unfortunately, she has not. I would not dare to show the world our 'amazing water bucket'. It is too embarrasing.  Undecided

You are a great person. I, Feleck and other girls felt really sorry when you left Volgograd but we all are happy you trusted your gut instincts and made your vital decision.
