Apparently he wants to stop growing, I was wondering what the major health issues would be for someone that is this tall. I would seem to me, that it would be very hard on the heart.

Wow. Imagine that.
I guess he suffers from Gigantism? I looked a bit and it seems some compliations of it are diabetes and problems with glucose, hormonal disruption (irregular menstruation, delayed onset of puberty)...

I wonder what the brain operation was for in the first place..

That giant from the movie was from Romainia.
He was only 7' 7"

the guy from the movie "my giant" was george muresan (something to that name) he was an nba player for about 2-3 years. I believe it was the washington bullets...

well, being very tall can lead to many physical problems, heart, spine... Tall people have it easy though.

I saw a discovery channel thing on this. What happens is that the petuitary is all messed up. The person never stops growing. A giant would be weak.
When the petuirtary swells it hi ts the optic nerve aventually making the giant go blind. It also makes thier head a lot more sensitive.

THat is an explanation for the david and golaith story. if you hit a modern "giant" on the head in the right place with a rock (prepositions
) th e"giant" would fall down dead.
