Change in fat Distribution?
Is it common for guys to undergo a change in fat distribution after an orchidectomy? I know there can be a tendancy to gain fat, but i was trying to explain the body changes I have had and the once was just totally missing the point.
I weight train reguarly and havent really had any trouble putting the muscle back on, but what i have noticed is a change in fat distribution, for me typically if i was the weight I am now pre surgery, i would have just had a uniform fat distribution, with a chubby face, and legs etc. However now I am about 15 pounds over weight, or at least compared to my usual weight, but I have ripped legs and a chisled jaw, and all the 15 pounds are basically on my gut lol. Ive had my testosterone checked and am awaiting th results any day now. Its not really a life altering issue and if anything I can get away with carrying a few pounds because my face is so thin lol. But i was just curious as to other peoples experiences.
