I had LIMB LENGTHENING. AMA about my extra foot.
I have the most common form of dwarfism, achondroplasia. When I was 16 years old I had an operation to straighten and LENGTHEN both of my legs. Before my surgery I was at my full-grown height: 3'10" a little over three months later I was just over 4'5." TODAY, I now stand at 4'11" after lengthening my legs again. In between my leg lengthenings, I also lengthened my arms. The surgery I had is pretty controversial in the dwarfism community. I can now do things I struggled with before - driving a car, buying clothes off the rack and not having to alter them, have face-to-face conversations, etc. You can see before and after photos of me on my gallery: chandlercrews.com/gallery
AMA about me and my procedure(s).
