Do you have to stay in the clinic during the the whole process?
I am thinking of going to Russia, but they doubled their price real bad.

No you can stay there as long as you want. But staying for the lengthening is common sense.

Really? How much is the price now?

We all wondered the whole time why it is so cheap there. I got 8 cm for 20 000 in total and stayed in the clinic the whole time. I always thought that this was a good deal.

Just tried a little bit of jogging. It works but I want to wait a little more just to be safe.
Then I will make a video...

Getting back to where I was before is impossible if you ask me. That will never happen. If I get back 70 % I would be very happy.

I don't exactly understand how the operation can be done, lengthening can take place, and then you can have the frames removed all within the short time span of 3 months.  European passports are only good for 90 days, did you move around to various countries during lengthening?

What makes it so you won't recover again? 70% isn't a good number.
Did you lengthen too much? Externals?

If I do 1.5 in on both femur and tibs to go from 5'9 to 6'0 will I have these problems?

You got 8CM for 20.000 EURO

Nowadays it is 14500 For External/4000 for LATN (Nails) = LATN = 18500 EURO +1 Month of stay.

If I want to stay for 6 months it'll cost me 1200x5 = 6000+18500 = 24500, and don't forget all the other costs.

What makes me not recover again? Well, I got my legs broken and lenthened everything 8 cm....

Well I think no one can answer if you will have these problems. My opinion: If you get your legs broken, you will never be like before. You will be very likely able to walk and even run. But forget about explosiveness, flexibility, high peak speed, endurance and full strength. This is just my opinion.
I did LL and I feel my legs everyday. I can do normal stuff. But nothing more. I could not even compete with a 8 year old ...hhahahah Smiley

You need to read a lot in here. Then you will understand bit by bit.

My passport was valid for one year. If I needed to stay longer I couldve. The visa will not stop you staying in the country.

I stayed in Russia the whole time.

Still a good price if you ask me. 30 000 for 8-10 cm with a good doctor. I would take it...

Prince2,

Could you make a summary of your total expenses in Russia?

If I am correct => 20k

12,5k for surgery and 3 months of stay
2,5k for nails LATN
5k for stay? 5 months ?


Also do you pay by russian rouble or by euros?

Also forget to ask,

Is it preferable to have good strenght in legs/tibias.
Do you recommend training legs before doing the surgery? Like in a fitness way
Should I be jogging weekly?

No, dont do any training. It is harmful for LL.
Only stretching, stretching, stretching.

Hi, thanks I am fine.

As far as I know he is doing good. Must be finished with lengthening long ago.
He liked it there the last time I talked to him.
I will contact him and ask if I give you his skype-name.

Hi Arch,

thanks I doing great! I feel very good. No problems so far.
Everytime I have to carry something heavy I am a little bit nervous, but did not have any problems.
Doctor said I could try jogging, but I want to still wait. I am worried to dislocate the nails.
But at the end of the year I will try and post a video of it.

I feel much better around people but not much has changed in my life. I am still the same person. Not really much more going on with girls than before. I just feel a lot better around them. Thats it.

I got a job and work a lot. Not many news guys...

How are you doing?

I am still saving up, planned to go with Dr Barinov before 2018.

In percentage of 100% as if you was before the operation, how much are you recovered at the moment?
A honest percentage?

Okay good!

Below is a definition that I made up. According to that I am at 40 %.

100% = being exactly as before
90% = doing what you did before almost as good as before (kneeling on a hard surface, good
           flexibility, lifting heave weights, endurance as before...)
80% = being able to do any kind of sports, almost as fast/explosive but flexibilty/stamina
           /explosiveness is still lacking
70% = you are able to run at a good speed for a short period of time and do sports at a good level but
           flexibilty and stamina is still lacking.
60% = you can walk and also run for a short period of time.
50% = you can go jogging little distances and do light sports for a short period of time.
40% = you can walk and climb stairs like a normal person and also lift light weights (up to 20 kg)
30% = you can walk like a normal person, no pain. No climbing stairs or sports.
20% = you can almost walk like a normal person, no pain when walking but still feel weak.
10% = you can walk, but you are still limping, little pain. Standing, sitting, lying without pain.
0%   = you are disabled, no walking, strong pain.

I have to be honest with you,

40% is terrible for being 2 years post op...

I expected you to be atleast 60% ...

How is your consolidation?

Well, I am very satisfied with the result so far. I wanted to be able to go out, to walk normally and to not have any pain. The rest will come gradually. I have to be patient.

You will see for yourself that LL is not easy. And recovering is hard.
But I hope you will do better, anyway good luck Smiley

I just saw your X-rays, it looks to me that one of them has a little bit of knee bending? it looks a little like mine where the tibia has some bending. not to the side but actually to the front, bending the knee just enough not to be noticed but at least I feel it sometimes.
