In brief: Depends

Your continued growth is dependent on your genetics, your gender, your health, your substance use profile, and your nutrition.
Check with your doctor to see what is your best approach to this problem.

In brief: Possibly

Growth is dependent on the growth plates at the end of long bones.
For most, growth plates fuse at the age of 17-19, which would mean that growth in those bones is no longer possible. An x-ray can determine if fusion has occurred or not.
