  Now is time to get back to the usual routine of walking and stretching....By the way, I did some drinking and didn't feel any weird pain nor infection so i guess as long as is not in excess you should be alright.

Here is a stretch that I do all the time. I also push my knees down to get a better stretch, you'll feel the muscles on back of your legs getting stretched.

You can do whatever lengthening you want, as long as you're doing good, I'm doing great so I did 9cm. . . . Also depends on what your body can handle.  I was thinking of going for 10cm but last week I got a nerve pain on my left leg and I couldn't walk for two days.  So I took that as I sign that I should stop. .  good luck on your goal, 5cm shouldn't be hard to reach :)

hi jmoney,
I should be in Volgograd in three weeks.  Can I ask you why you decided not to do the LON?
thanks,

  I was happy to be back at clinic and see the guys and some of the girls that were doing correction.  Like Rgkey said, it really helps to be surrounded by good people when you are going through this surgery and I couldn't agree more.  The staff at the clinic is really nice and you can see the doctors pretty much everyday, which is a very good thing.  As far as the girls, I wasn't lucky to get any beautiful ones but I had some really cool ones and at least one of them spoke english.  The clinic is small but good enough for what you need to do, I will try to post pictures or you can visit Mr.  placebo's diary where he has some good shots of the place.  The food is a million times better than the hospital but I still don't like a lot of it, I just force myself to eat it. 
  All I did at the clinic was sleep, eat and work; by work I mean walk and stretch.  I did talk to everyone and had tea with the girls blah blah blah but my main priority was always my legs and avoiding contractions.  By this stage I really couldn't sleep much, so nights sucked and went by really slow and I would get up around 6:30 Am to get my day started. 
  I would come out my room around 7AM and sometimes have tea with the girls, if they were up, if not go for a walk for about one and a half hour or two.  After the walk, i would have a protein shake and do some stretching in my room for about one hour and then eat breakfast.  After breakfast, I would do another walk for about two hours and then more stretching in my room.  At this time I would try to rest, pretty much just lay in bed with my foot holders on and close my eyes for about one hour.  Then, I would eat lunch and after lunch do another walk and then stretch in my room and maybe sneak in a small rest.  Then I would eat dinner and after dinner go for my last walk of the day and drink a protein shake and try to sleep, which was impossible.  This was routine in the clinic all the way till now, where I have reached 9cm without any big complications.  Of course some days maybe something would change but i would try to stick to it as close as possible.          

. . . what is the difference between clinic and hospital? location, people, costs.  Do we decide where to stay?

what did the dictor think of your extreme lengthening goal, given the recomended amount is 5-7cm, didn't he try to stop you?

what is your final tibia and femur length, is your tibia as long as your femur, originally my femur was 9cm longer than my tibia.

i said a while back 5cm was my goal but may upgrade it to 6 if everything goes okay, i think 6 is about the average/typical gain for tibs, id say 5cm is below average gain.

Hi jmoney, nice diary, thanks for the read.

I noticed there are lots of correction patients with Dr Barinov.  This is correction of bow-legs, right? I have bow-legged calves myself.  I'm 179cm which is average height, but I was considering getting the correction and also lengthening 5cm at the same time.  Two birds, one stone.  Do you know anyone who has done this with Dr Barinov?

Take care and good luck with the rest of the lengthening.

hi guys, sorry for not updating sooner. It has been a month and two weeks after my nail surgery and I'm feeling great. Also, I've been home for two weeks now; the height feels really good. No pain on legs and still walking with crutches until Dr. Barinov clears me to drop the crutches. Legs get stronger everyday after you get the nail and, of course, walking gets better also.
  I'm glad I went to this clinic, even though is not the perfect place but for the price and the treatment you get I think it's worth it. Dr. Barinov is a good doctor and will make sure you get good results. So having said that, I would recommend this clinic to future LL patients.

@marcelo, Good luck on your journey, you will be fine and wish we could have met.
  I didn't do LON because I didn't know anything about it, plus I had never read a diary on it. I had read about LATN and fully external procedures and also when I got to Volgograd I saw Prince2 get the nail and recover fine; also my roommate got the nail and turned out great. So I felt really confortable and I honestly don't think that having a nail inside your leg with all the muscles and whatever else stretching, is a good idea because it is not fixed and it can move. There may also be a limit to how much you can lengthen but these are my theories, you would have to do some research to be sure.   
  So this is why I went with LATN, which I think is the way to go if you don't have the money to do the internal procedure.
