16 year old in need of advice

Hi Im 16 year old male and hav a few questions.

I've had 3 major open heart surgeries since I was 3months old
After the 3rd in 2006 I had ascites in my stomach. The ascites is still on my stomach. I was also put on a diet for 6months where i was only allowed 5g of fat a day.

I take alot of different tablets.

My question is:

I'm 5ft exactly (the same size I was in 2006) and 5st 11lb (but I eat like a horse), if it wasnt for my big belly (due to fluid) you could mistake me for being anorexic. I havent gone through puberty. No hairs, High Voice ect...
I am tired of people treating me like a 12 year old. Especially as I am moving into adults and no longer peadiatric. Is it normal for people like me to be "late bloomers"?
