Any ways to increase my height and become tall


Q: I'm 16 and 5 foot 4 inches tall.I'm really worried about my height as I've not grown even an inch from last year. I'm an Indian.I consulted a orthopaedic doctor 2 weeks ago who told me that if my growth plates are fused, the only remedy would be HGH or limb lengthening surgery .I'm afraid of the operation or growth Hormone injection as they may cause fatal problems leading to my death. Is hormone supplement & limb lengthening surgery safe? Which is better?what are safe hormone supplements which you would prescribe me as safe supplements?Are hormone injection and Hormone supplements or stimulants different? What are the success rates of these ? Does surgery or hormone or its supplements cause any fatal problems leading to death? Will hormone injection help me even if my growth plates are fused? How tall can i grow by limb lengthening surgery? Do you know any safe hormone stimulants for my height? Is there any other remedy other than exercise and natural habits? What about hypnotism for height gain? Do you know any hypnotist in Bangalore India who could help me? If I chose surgery or hormone injection would my life span decline? My doctor told me to take an x-ray report on whether my growth plates are fused, but I fear of the report as it might decline my interest in gaining my height or make me feel dejected. What might be the cost of surgery or Hormone injection or HGH stimulants ?
