I had my pre op today and there was a passing comment on becoming taller after I've had the fusion and discs replaced. I'm sure he said 75mm and it wasn't until relaying the conversation that my son said thats about 3 inches!!! Surely I won't gain 3"????

I'm just about 6 foot already (tall for a lady) and don't need anymore. But then, maybe I've shrunk as the DDD set in, so I'll only end up where I started. I need to measure myself and see if I am 6'. Son says I'm not (he's 6'5") so I'll do a before and after measurement.

Has anyone grown??? :?
