Recent studies have found from doctors that you can grow taller after puberty  with the stretching of the spine, what do u doctors think?

Improved posture : Working on posture can make someone look taller, but it can't actually make someone anatomically taller. Growth has to happen for height to increase. Growth plates in bone are fused by late teens by pubertal hormones which is when growth stops. Any effect from spine stretching would be postural.

Someone i know has glioblastoma multiforme, and it has spread to both their face and their spine. Is there anything else the doctors can do tohelphim?

That's an answer: only his doctors know. Glioblastoma multiforme, as I am sure you are aware from surfing the net, is pretty aggressive. Any prognosis would be entirely patient/case-specific. If the patient is at an interdisciplinary brain tumor center, he's got access to experts in their fields. As a friend/family member, you are just as important as the pros, to be there for him.
