2 doctors agree

In brief: Yes

If bone age is 10, then yes she has lots to grow.
The grow plates have not fused yet. Keep her on treatment, use a multidisciplinary team of doctors. Very important.

In brief: Puberty

Bone age 10 means she has 4 potential years to grow.
She could start to develop soon and continue growing as puberty progresses.
