Sounds like a dig against management, and therefore not a genuine medical question.


On the off chance that it is a serious question...   loss of testicles is not in and of itself a disqualification from holding a medical cert.  And receiving testicular prostestics is also not a disqualification.


However the AME will probably disqualify you for 6 months while observing how the hormonal changes affect you since the testes account for ~ 95% of the testosterone production in your body.


There are approved testosterone replacement regimens, however they will also require your AME to observe for any negative impacts before returning you to flight duty.


 


Of course with your testicles gone now, it's a prime time to make that transition that you've been secretly dreaming about.
