Leg lengthening surgery is also one of the modern medical interventions that many healthy individuals seek in hopes that it will increase their height. In essence, the procedure involves breaking through the tibia and fibula (the bones in your lower legs) and inserting a telescopic rod between them. The inserted rod sits outside the leg framework and need to be adjusted several times a day. When adjusted, the rod pulls both bones in the hopes that new tissue will fill the gap. The telescopic rods pull the bones about 1mm a day, but the whole process can last up to 6 months followed by 3 to 6 more months of physically-demanding therapy.
I suffer with chronic pain. Im 52 year old female. I had 2 back surgeries in 2014. I’m always in some sort of pain. Recently my rheumatologist said he thinks I have rheumatoid arthritis. I’m always tired and my joints hurt and swell sometimes. I take pain pills daily which messes with my gut. Always constipated and lately with the heat where I live I have no appetite. I’m going through menopause and it’s draining me also. I’ve tried taking magnesium supplements but for some reason they made me itch. Since reading this article I think I might try the water and maybe the magnesium drops. I get depressed from the pain sometimes. To be honest I usually just don’t have the energy to do anything. I have custody of a 7 year old little girl and I want to be able to do fun things with her. I smoke and I want to quit but it’s so hard. I want to get motivated to change my life and get in shape and pain free but I really don’t know how. Please give me some advice or inspiration I just need something to get me going and to get rI’d of some of the pain so I can have quality of life not just quantity. Any information would be appreciated.
