Thank you Robyn! My 15 year old just had his wisdom teeth out last week. I had read your post and decided to try your approach, also wanting to avoid antibiotics and steroids. Unfortunately, I couldn’t get platelet rich fibrin to use from my holistic dentist, but I was able to get Notasan, BCQ, Vit D+K2, Vit C, Oregano oil, and spry rinse. The oral surgeon didn’t prescribe steroids but had wanted an antibiotic dose the night before, which we declined. Amazingly, he did prescribe Arnica capsules and no narcotics, which I thought was great. My son did great (similar video of car ride home-haha!!) with very little pain and swelling and no dry socket. I really want to thank you for providing me with all the resources you came up with and for giving me the courage to try “a different approach” as you put it!
Technically speaking, BALCO is extinct, but Victor Conte is a free man and still running a business called "Scientific Nutrition for Advanced Conditioning" or "SNAC." After serving a four-month prison sentence prior to pleading guilty in 2005, he now sells various supplements and vitamins. Patrick Arnold and Greg Anderson each served a three-month jail sentence after pleading guilty with Anderson serving an additional three-month house arrest sentence. Recently Anderson was incarcerated again after being found in contempt of court for refusing to testify about Barry Bonds and Gary Sheffield’s use of banned steroids.  BALCO is not completely dead however; on the SNAC website, Conte has BALCO apparel for sale. 
Testosterone can be administered parenterally , but it has more irregular prolonged absorption time and greater activity in muscle in enanthate , undecanoate , or cypionate ester form. These derivatives are hydrolyzed to release free testosterone at the site of injection; absorption rate (and thus injection schedule) varies among different esters, but medical injections are normally done anywhere between semi-weekly to once every 12 weeks. A more frequent schedule may be desirable in order to maintain a more constant level of hormone in the system.  Injectable steroids are typically administered into the muscle, not into the vein, to avoid sudden changes in the amount of the drug in the bloodstream. In addition, because estered testosterone is dissolved in oil, intravenous injection has the potential to cause a dangerous embolism (clot) in the bloodstream.
