I am curious if Eric Shanteau is on hormone replacement therapy afer his surgery. Its common for people who have testicular cancer. I'm not saying this to insinaute he is cheating, but I am wondering if he is getting to use steroids legally? I know there were reports awhile back about Lance Armstrong's doctor giving him far more than was necessary to bring back "normal levels" but when you have a use exemption for it, whose to know? just thought it interesting

I could be way off base on this, but I don't think taking hormone replacement therapy is the same as taking anabolic steroids.

And in Lance's case I don't think it was steroids; I think he was given EPO as part of his cancer treatment.
