Hey guys!
I know this topic has been beaten to death already, but what are your thoughts about recovering/lengthening times Betz vs. Guichet?

I had a consultation with Guichet last week. I met three patients - all of them are at ~5 cm after around 5 week post-op which seems pretty impressive. But pretty much all of them stopping lengthening around 5 or 5.5cm because they can't take the pain any more. All of them agree Guichet is excellent doctor but also very pushy and not empathetic if you don't follow his instructions. Also, none of them seem to get more 2-3 hours sleep per night. The seem almost at the breaking point mentally. They all agree he is an amazing doctor and has a solution to every issue you might encounter while lengthening, but they feel like he treats them as 'robots' and not as humans with pain/feelings etc.

I asked Dr. Guichet about it. According to him, they are not following the PT regiment everyday as he recommended; therefore the are likely to stop lengthening earlier. He wants them to do what he tells them to do without questions if they want to achieve results.

I know Guichet's patients begin/finish lengthening faster, but does it come with a price (mental exhaustion, increased pain as you are clicking more)

And, yes when I met Guichet, he is exactly like how everyone here described him - not the most friendly or warm and fuzzy guy you'll meet, but he knows what exactly what he is talking about and very precise with answers.

Any veterans here would like to add their thoughts? Much appreciated!
