I will stay out of the t-level/testestrome part of this conversation. Way over my head, and no nothing about it. Just don't underestimate how damaging radiation can be. Between both of your treatments, you have hit or gone over 100 gys. And what a lot of people don't relaize, that you can get the big post radiation physical crash months and months after the treatments are over. I have been through this twice, as you know, in just the past 10 years, and I am speaking first hand. The crash I had in 2000, was unexpected by me, and when it hit, didn't know what I was going through. That's when I had to go into cancer rehab, for six months, and then it was extended six more months. I was also 10 years younger and working a busy career at the time. This time, it hit me early, and here, some 8 months after treatments have ended, still have that daily wall of fatigue to fight, along with the pains associated with the collateral damage from the radiation. Both things, people are told, rarely happen. In my case, not very convincing.
I think you should follow through with what you are suggesting, no problems on my end, and let us know how it goes or at least what you find out along the way. Just glad you are thinking outside the "normal" box, and thinking ahead in your journey.
And like you, glad Bro. Zufus has his unique angle on things PC.
