  • From this study (1 month ago):

  • Lost three inches off my height in the two years I took finasteride. Only took a daily 1mg dose. I have no disk material between my L-4 - L5 and between my L5 - S1. I used to be 6'2" and now I am barely 5'11". I was conclusively 6'2" from a doctor wellness exam a little more than 2 years ago and I am having to go in to get spinal surgery within the next month because my lack of disk material is damaging my nerves that go into my legs. I go between being completely numb in my legs to being in complete pain.
