Resized droplet but fdisk still show 25gb

Recently got this error “ext4-fs (loop0) error loading journal” and server unable to boot up.
Read here that it might be a disk full issue
At this stage, fdisk show 25GB although I have been paying for 50GB (shown in the DO control panel).
But I wanted a quick fix (DO support was not replying) and so tried resizing to 60GB.
After which, server still did not boot. Console still show the same error.
When I ran fdisk, it still shows 25GB.
What can I do to resize the disk and get this back running?
Please help

I’ve tried the tutorial here on growpart
But it doesn’t work as well.
mkdir: cannot create directory, no space left on device.

What to do now?
