Low Testosterone Levels?

Hi, I'm a 31 year old that was treated for embryonal cell carcinoma 5 years ago. I have been healthy since but have slowly gained weight over that time despite keeping relatively active and I definitely have a pot belly and fatigue. I know sometimes low testosterone levels can be associated with these symptoms. Has anyone else experienced this and tried testosterone replacement therapy with any success?

went through same diagnosis and had lost 50 lbs to become underweight during chemo's. 1.5 years later gained all back plus 10 more lbs.

After exxperiencing this weight swing I had my oncologist test testosterone. And yes levels were not found to be low as in a serious problem, but definitely barely in the normal level. Was referred to a specialist (endocrinologist) and have an appointmtent in a week.

I am actually eating less than before I was challenged with cancer fight. There appears to be some pattern here....
