Disk size problem, think it's LVM releted (F26)

I've installed Fedora 26 with MATE and loving it to death, I've found that my main SSD on which the OS is installed is unusually small, cut down by about 50%< I suspect it has somthing to do with LVM as it looks like Fedora decided to install it automatically, maybe I just got lazy and did not notice as the installation was really smooth compared to previous versions, been using Fedora since Heisenbug. So I tried to fix it myself but the Graphical program (system-config-lvm) is not available since the closer of Fedora hosted(?) so I cloned it from github, but usually there's a .config, isn't there? simply typing "make" didn't do nothing. I took my legs to the terminal, saw there's an LVM command, but whenever I type "lvm lvextend" this happens:

sudo lvm lvextend '/dev/fedora_userXyz/root' -L 111G Insufficient free space: 15616 extents needed, but only 0 available

I know for a fact I've at least 50G good to use on that drive. Help's appreciated, readers of this comment - have the most wonderful day.

Output of these would help with answering the question:

sudo fdisk -l
sudo lvm vgdisplay
sudo lvm lvdisplay
