I think he finished recently. Dr. M just put up X-rays on his Facebook page of a femur patient who had completed 5cm with great bone regeneration. I'm not sure if it's him or not...

sorry, my bad. I was looking at the pictures of this guy doing femur one at a time.

why do the x-rays have yellow stickers saying 29.march 2013?

I don't know. I didn't even notice that. It may not be him then.

hi a1_z1.  being in the wheelchair is actually not that bad.  i just watch some tv and read during the day.  i transfer to the bed to do some stretching and the lengthening is three times daily, which breaks up the day.  the worst part is at night when i'm just laying flat trying to sleep.  my legs feel very tight and heavy and it's very uncomfortable. 

Hi Nanog, I hope you are doing well? As we have not had any update from you?

Hi everyone.  Iím terribly sorry about not keeping up with my posts.  Dr.  M had even said that some people were asking him to remind me to update.  I want to assure everyone that nothing bad happened.  As the lengthening progressed, everyday was just so busy because I had a routine involving PT, biking at least two hours a day, stretching before and after lengthening, etc.  And add in time to eat and bathe and sleep and there really wasnít time to do much else.  Also, it was very uncomfortable for me to sit in the wheelchair so I wasnít able to use my computer during the lengthening.  I have also been super busy with school/work since the consolidation so thatís why I was so bad about keeping up.  I apologize if I worried anyone unnecessarily. 

Just to summarize my case, I had surgery on Jan 31, started lengthening on post-op day 6, lengthened about 5cm, and started consolidation at the very end of March.  Dr.  M cleared me to weight bear on only my left leg after 4 weeks, and then 2 weeks later he cleared me for full weight bearing on both sides.  I used 2 crutches for the two weeks that I was only allowed to weight bear on the left side, and then I used a walker and a cane for about 3 weeks once I could fully weight bear on both sides.  I stopped the cane and have been walking unassisted for about 3 weeks now.  My gait is not normal because I think my hip muscles are weak from the immobility, but every week there is improvement and I am still continuing PT right now, which is helping.  I have a small limp/wobble right now and my tendency is to spread my legs apart and wide.  I have to really concentrate to walk with my legs together.  My legs are also still kind of stiff, but they have definitely loosened up since the lengthening.  Stretching is still necessary and helps somewhat.  During the lengthening, I also experienced some nerve pain and tingling and numbness in both calves.  I started Neurontin for that, which probably helped a little.  Once I could weight bear, the nerve problems improved a lot.  There is still some numbness but the pain and tingling have mostly disappeared.  Iím off the Neurontin now too and everything is fine.  I am confident that with enough time this will improve and I am not worried about it. 

I have an appointment to see Dr.  M tomorrow.  Overall, I am very pleased with the result and have no regrets about doing the procedure.  It has changed my life for the better.  Even though I still have a lot of work to do now in terms of PT so that I can walk normally again, I am happy to do it and optimistic about my recovery.  Once again, I'm very sorry for not keeping up with the entries and will try my best to answer questions.  Thanks.

Great. that is good to know ,.... see you are doing school work as well, so I guess you can concentrate on other activities as well. It was not that bad, good to know. When do you think you will be able to walk to the supermarket and in the park an assisted ?

A1_z1, I can walk without any help now and can go to the store, gym, etc on my own. The gait is not completely normal yet but Dr. M said Iíll continue to recover with more PT and things will be back to normal eventually. He also said I could start running now based on the most recent xrays last week.

Thank you for sharing your experience.  I am currently in the lengthening process, and I am having nerve numbness on left calf. I was given Gabapentin.  Did your nerve issues go away and leg return to normal?
