hello

Well, today i started talking about LL with my parents, and they agreed on me haveing one when im 20, cause at this moment im still growing, im 174CM right now, and probably will grow to 176/177.

So i know there might be a possibility of me not getting a LL at 176CM, but still i will try to, please dont hate me because i want a LL at this height, but its just something i have wanted all my life, ive always been the shortest, and i soooo wanna be above 180CM.

So now i did some measureing, because i probably wanna do tibia lengthening only.

My measurements are:

Length: 174CM
Tibia length(from ground to top knee, when leg is bent): 57CM
Tibia lengthened: 66CM

Is this a normal length, or are they already long/short for my height ?.

Greetings Thomas

You can only measure your tibia and femur length on an X-ray - there is no other way to do it accurately.
