Patient :Hi, I'm 12 years old, and i've recently hit puberty. My doctor told me that once you hit puberty, you don't grow much anymore, and that i'm not going to grow anymore. I'm 4'11, and it scares me that i'll be this height for the rest of my life. Is it true that your body is completely done growing after puberty?
