Well, we knew from the beginning that the shots may not work. The younger you start them on someone the better chance of them working is... I was like 17 and it was a pretty low chance that they would work anyways.. I saw no results.
All of those tests that your son went through, I went through as well. They said that my growth plates weren't closed yet. That gave me hope. But they said all this when I was like 17-18 and I haven't had tests done since (money issues).
I don't think they ever mentioned Turner's Syndrome. I went to a lot of child specialists as a kid so I would 'assume' (which I know you are never to do) that they are specialists and would know what to look for.... I'll read over that info though
I think I have come to a point in my life that I just accept myself. I always hear the line "Oh you look like your 12" But I'm actually 22
So I get used to it... for awhile it really really hurt me and I would cry daily because of it- but now it's just me!
My friends have nicknamed me Umpa Lumpa (charlie and the chocolate factory)
If you ever want to talk more about this, feel free to pm me
I don't bite.... (well not hard!)

Basically once the growth plates close they will not help you grow. But even later in life we out put smaller amounts of these hormones.
One more question were you ever tested for Turner Syndrome? Turner Syndrome only effects females and could explain the lack of a menstrual cycle.
Here is some info on Turner Syndrome: http://turnersyndrome.org/resource/faq.html
Hopefully I did not step on any toes.
