Leg Lengthening Blog

A 29 year old woman kept a blog about her leg lengthening procedure for right leg. 

Why did she do such a thing?  Well, like myself, she has one leg that is longer than the other, and it caused her sever back and pelvis pain.  She explains herself more in her second entry.

Lots of interesting pictures, and  here are a few facts she noted:

First surgery date: May 30th, 2007
Time spent in the hospital: 3 days, 2 nights
Begin date of lengthening: June 4, 2007
Duration of lengthening period: 24 days
Amount lengthened: one angry inch (2.54 centimeters)
Amount of work missed: 5 weeks
Duration of consolidation period before weight transfer: 76 days
Length of Vicodin withdrawal: 7 weeks
Second surgery date: October 24, 2007
Total duration of fixation: 148 days
