I can’t believe it’s been seven years since my second leg lengthening. 🤩 I still have the monkey, can’t say the same for the glasses though (they’re around somewhere) and the legs are longer. So I guess happy 7 year LEG-iversary to my third? pair of legs 🥳
Dr. Standard told once me he’ll never forget this day – it was a LONG day in OR 19. The difference between this lengthening from my first (and arm lengthening), was that I had the NuVasive PRECICE nails in my femurs. My tibias still needed a some correction which is why I had Taylor-Spatial Frames. However, if I were to ever (and that’s a big ‘IF’) do it again, I would be able to have all internal 😏
For me, this lengthening is the one that made the biggest impact. The one that made me realize the importance of face-to-face communication and the riveting feeling it is to buy jeans off the rack and wear leggings that don’t need to be cut or bunched at the bottom.
