Not likely...: If very tall people are in your family, and especially if they grew late into adolescence, I guess it might still happen but otherwise, it's not likely for that much additional growth. Other medical issues may matter too, so talk w/ your doctor about your case. You might gain a bit more and I hope you can feel satisified. Best!
