Mr. Placebo,

Since you have direct contact with Dr.Barinov, do you mind asking him a question I am curious about?

In Beijing, Dr. Xia gives his LATN/LON patients custom leg braces when the fixators are removed and are told to wear them for one to two months to help support the legs until muscle mass returns. I'm curious why he doesn't recommend the same type of support?

Devil, I did talk to Dr. Barinov. Basically, he said he doesn't see any point in doing that unless you have weak regeneration. It's better that you start walking on crutches right away which would facilitate quicker muscle recovery. Any sort of bracing would actually impede the process. They do things differently in China where many patients spend most of their time in bed whereas here you are encouraged to walk as much as possible which doesn't lead to severe muscle atrophy.

Mr. Placebo,

How is recovery going for you? Are you all done with your procedure and back home now?

I gained about 3 cm according to this first x-ray. Btw, you can get free x-rays at any Russian hospital if you have a note from your doctor. The only downside is that you have to come next day to pick up your x-rays and waiting takes a few hours. There is another hospital down the road where you can get the x-rays done without having to wait. You pay 1,600 rubles ($25) and you are out the door in 10 mins. Usually Tonya accompanies your to and from the hospital helping you to register and check in.
                   

When was this first x-ray taken? Right after your surgery? If so, then wow, did you automatically get a 3 cm headstart?

He arrived in Russia but didn't begin his diary until August. So this X-ray was around 2 months post op
