Sweden, your videos look very good. It's not obvious from you proportions that you did LL. It's also hard to see that you have any pain when you move, although you do look a little stiff when doing some kicks. Still, I'm sure you move better than 95% of adult males in the world.

I have to say that some of the pain you have could be because of the rods in your body. Almost everyone I have known who did LL had a marked improvement after there rods were removed, even many years later. Have you found a local orthopedic doctor who knows anything about LL or who might be able to help you?

Nothing really new.

Still have bad X-legs which I'm trying to fight. Still have the nails in my legs.

Can't really run as a person should. Right foot is destroyed since it was broken bc of X-legs. Aches and pain every day, no exceptions. Knees hurt on the inside bc of X-legs and it WILL develop arthritis in time. Ankles ache every morning and there is a enormous stretch in my calfs all the time when I stand up.

I shouldn't have done 7cm. Dr Sarin should have taken my concerns of X-legs more serious.

If I want to do sports I need tramadol. I'm slow as never before and move like an old man. It's embarrassing.

I don't have any muscles on my legs, still, and when I try heavy squats my feet and ankle stops me. Also the biomechanics is all wrong now so I get severe back pain in my lower back when I try it. Just terrible.
All bc of X-legs and short muscles/tendons in my lower legs.

This won't get any better now. This is my life.
The price tag of becoming 179cm.

Sweden I'm sorry to hear all these.
But keep calm my friend.

X legs is something that can be completely fixed. Of course yo should put Ilizarov again but not more that 1-2 months and you'll be ok.
Very short muscles is another problem that can be fixed with a surgery (ATL or gastrocnemius release) but I'm sure that if you work hard your flexibility you are gonna be fine.
I have the exact opposite problem, my tendons feel loose because my doctor lengthened my achilles tendon more than he should and I have to build really big calves to be back to completely normal again. I'm improving and I walk good but I can't run for long and like you, I walk not so fast as other people and also my balance is a bit off.
But I will work my calves more and more and if in about a year I dont have a good result I'm even thinking of a new small tibia lengthening (1,5-2 cm max) to make my tendons-gastrocnemius length normal again.

So don't get dissappointed, every problem you have can be fixed.
You'll never be normal again, nor I nor anyone that did LL (especially after 5cm or people who did femur and tibia LL) but someone doesn't face great complications (bone infections or nerve damage) then everything else can be fixed and of course he could live normal but without the athletic ampilities he had preLL.

Keep strong dude and think wisely, nothing is so bad in your case. Wink

Thanks for the positive words.

I'm having a check up next Tuesday so then I'll see what I need to do.

Everything takes forever here in Sweden.


Yesterday I ran 7km and it ached a lot in my knees. I got a new ache too that scares me a little. Hurts a bit all the time.

Alright. I will push for getting the nails out.


I was just down at the gym, cycling for 20 minutes and cross fit machine for 10 minutes. Left knee is not working anymore. Hurts too much. I tried 200kg in the leg press but after 3 times it was impossible. I had to stop.

The nails are coming out now. Every doctor here in Sweden says that the nails stay in the legs for the rest of your life. Only in rare cases, they remove them.
That's why I kept mine.

I will push for surgery to fix my X-legs and have the nails removed.

Please suggest me some good doctors in India.  I don't want any complications.  I met few last week but not sure from whom I should get this surgery done.
