Why my body is a bit longer than my legs

When I was 9 years old, all my leg joints are swollen. I can't even walk. I can't remember the actual cause but I think it is a symptom of acute rheumatic fever. I was taken lots of antibiotic and injections to my hips.


Now, I am 30 years old. I notice that my legs are a bit shorter than my body. I am not sure if this is the side effects of taking too much antibiotic. (But my teeths are big and strong) ..
Is there any way or exercise I can do to extend my legs. Can I take growth hormone.
