Wow...I have just spend 4 hours reading this thread from beginning and I am speechless...
There is an excitement of hope, human triumph and true bonding....all in one...

MMT and Mysterman thank you a million times for the detail that is included in this thread...MMT you are gifted writer and like others have said you made us experience the journey with you...

I am looking into getting LL as I am 30 years old and 5'7...I want to to be 5'10"...I have contacted the German institute for some info on femur lengthening...and cost is my biggest obstacle...

After reading your post...I am really curious about the Chinese option and I will be firing an email off to see what their responses are and how busy their schedules are in terms of surgeries and pre-op preparations...

Thanks again

Hey MMT, are the pictures of your scars pre or post having them surgically minimized, assuming you ever had them minimized?

I never had them minimised - scars are of no concern to me.

Hi MMT,

I've read your diary and I would like to ask you a few qs:

1) When did you get back your full range of motion for your ankle?

2) When did you manage to squat?

3) Is there any downtime for removal of your internal rods?

Thank you.

Hi MM. I am still in the sage of planning my limb lengthening.

I work as a police officer and I stand at around 171 cm in length. I am hoping to get seven centimetres done in femurs. Judging from other member's posts, it seems the tibia might be a better idea, so I am still deliberating on that front. 

I was planning vacation leave, and then unpaid leave for a year after the operation to get back to full recovery, and then get back to work.

I was wondering -

1) How much athletic and physical ability do you get back after 1 year (removal of frame etc)? I do a lot of kickboxing - it's hard to imagine after such a surgery that I can ever return to it  Tongue.
2) Did you ever regain 100% of your athletic ability?
3) Relating to the actual time spent during operation - does having strong quadriceps, hamstrings, and calf muscles  as well as good flexibility help with your recovery?
4) And lastly, I have a lot of upper body lean muscle mass. Is that going to negatively affect my walking during recovery? I work out a lot with weights and run frequently every week.

I appreciate the time you spend to answer these questions. I am very admiring of the people who have the strength to do this type of surgery!

Hi MM. I am still in the sage of planning my limb lengthening.

Hi!

See my post-LL experiences in the 'Life after LL' section - you should return to 100% athletic ability, depending on how much LL you do. If you do less than 7.6cm, then there should be no problem.

Flexibility is the key, not bulk. You'll lose a lot of muscle and it will take some time to get back to your current physique, but it shouldn't impede you. People who are 'squat' and muscular sometimes have a harder time lengthening because the muscles resist stretching, but it should be fine.

Hope that helps,

MMT

Thanks! That helps a lot!

I'm still youngun so I am saving up and researching all the best places and different methods used. Hopefully if I can get this done by the time I am 23 I can convince everyone that it was a late growth spurt thing (still tough to imagine!)  Wink

Good luck - once you're taller, you won't really care what people think!

No, bowing correction is part of the procedure where I had my treatment Smiley

Hi MMT I've read your stories and your surgery diaries. You are really a wonderful guy, a determined and a confident guy who knows what he is going to do and knows exactly how to do it. Keep working on this and hope you will only get better and better!

Actually I've heard about the surgery 9 years ago when the technology wasn't so advanced and their clinic was still very small but the thing is there's little information available at that time and it's pretty expensive for me to consider that because I was a high school student at that time.

8 years ago when I was in college I read something on the newspaper telling stories about the surgery in Dr Xia's clinic but their comments are not good and lots of critics around. But I still planed to gather more information about the surgery and hope eventually one day I can do that because I know that there's no OTHER way to be taller unless you deceive yourself. I wished you were around at that time and provide us so much useful information like today.

Now I am getting older and living outside of China but I can't bear being short any more. I can totally understand your motivation to do this surgery. I am in Australia at the moment and all the guys here seem to be taller than 177cm which makes me like a student of Grade 5.

I think your recovery diary and your tips will be particular helpful because not so many people underwent the surgery in recent years or they just don't want to share their experiences. If one can recover to normal in one year or two this surgery will definitely be worthwhile.

BTW, your stories with your stunning GFs are really attractive, I wish I can be as successful as you one day  Grin
