Hello guys. I had right leg's frame removed on January 23rd and came back to my country yesterday. Nevertheless I'm still fare away from beeing 100% recoverd. I have problem with balance couse my muscles are week. I'm also worried about my left leg. Still feel some discomfort from a bon. Hard to describe this feeling. I literally feel my bone touching skin/ muscles mostly in a places where wires were inserted even though it's almost 3 weeks  after frame removal. It isn't really painful but very annoying. For a record I don't have this issue with my right leg. They took X-ray and said that everything is fine but I'm worried anyway. Did any of You experience something simillar? When can I expect this problem to disapear?

How much did you lengthen and did you get rods inserted into your tibias?

I forgot to add that this discomfort I mentioned comes from places just below the knee where wires were installed.

It's going to take a good few months for these aches and pains to go away the wires below the knees will likely take time for the bones to fill up and then harden

Ignore my previous post you did 5cms and consolidated in frames. I'm glad you are out of them il bet sleeping is much easier now.

I did 3cms I'm at home in the UK my bones have been consolidated for some time now but because the NHS is slow I'm still awaiting a date for them to come off I can't wait as the frames are so painful. I can walk and things but stretching and sleep are a nightmare due to the fact I can't sleep on my side. The pin sites get irritated very easily as well

For me sleeping wasn't a big deal. I could easily sleep on a side. I just had to put some small pilow below thigh. Maybe You should try.

Ssteiner is right. Sleeping on belly with frames is imposible.

Hi,

I'm really sorry to bother you with a message that isn't relevant to what you've posted.   However, I am new to this site and am trying to figure out how to post/start my own LL diary, and I simply cannot find the button/method that let's me create a new post.   I have even emailed the website, but have received no reply.   If you could please just let me know how one goes about starting a new post/thread, I'd greatly appreciate it.

So everything is geting back to normal very, very slowely. Nevertheless my feet are still swollen, and I'm wondering if it's normal on this stage (1,5 month  after frames removal)? What's even more important, it seems like I gained a bit less than 5 cm, around 4,8 cm. Doctor was always saying that according to x-rays my bones should be 5,2-5,3 cm longer. I read on some other diaries on this forum that in few first months after frames removal there is still some contracture in knees which prevents people from reaching their real height. Is that true?

Hi Qaz, read your diary you mentioned that you turned for 2 months 1mm a day with three days of gap, your doctor is right that your bone should be 5.2 or 5.3, if there is a contracture in knee than also the gap where bone is broken should be the same. How come 4.8.

Hey Romy,
First of all 1 mm turned by device isn't equal with 1mm in a bone gap because of wires bending. Secondly I didn't say that space between two pices of bone wasn't equal 5,2-5,3 cm, what I'm saying is I'm not 5,2-5,3 cm taller than I used to be before surgery it's more like 4,8 cm and I think it's due to contracture in knees.

Hi qaz
How are you doing, how's your knee.  Well the much I know is if the wire tension is accurate than you definitely get the same amount of gap you turned but it's completely subjective.  Keep up the stretching and corrective exercises.  Take care.

Hey hakunamatata,
I'm doing fine. Slowly getting back to normal. From time to time have a problem with right Achilles tendon. I will even visit a doctor in 3 weeks, but I'm pretty sure it's not a big deal just trying to be preventive.
