    My left leg is 2.5cm longer than right and this leads to feet problems behind my knee as well as back pain since February 2009! I am seeing a surgeon on the 14th to see if I may need an op! Does anyone know anything about this? Is it a good thing to do? And just general advice and anything? And I'm only 14 years old! My podiatrist (foot doctor) said I have like a 3 year gap to have an operation if need to! Thank you

    Had the same thing but I had a 7 and a half centimetre difference. Had 2 Ilizarov procedures at the Nuffield clinic in Oxford and fixed it all up. I had the first when I was 13 and second at 16. Nothing to it buddy.
