In brief: No
Once you're done growing, that's all she wrote for bone growth.
However, muscle growth can continue with proper workouts and resistance training.

you don't know that you are done with puberty at age 17 (male), and may continue growing until 19

In brief: No
Taking unnecessary testosterone will cause acne, atherosclerotic heart disease and potential emotional issues but will not change your bony build.
