low testosterone

Hello,

I've recently been to the urologist who ran a blood test and ultrasound of the testicles because I've been suffering from a sharp decrease in libido lately and ED.
I'm 40 yrs old and have been on fairly high amounts of MS-Contin (morphine ) lately because of chronic pain from 2 recent back surgeries. The pain has also made me quite depressed.
The testosterone in my body was 3.5 and he told me that the normal values are around 35. That means I have a tenth of what normal is. Needless to say, I'm scared to death about this. I don't want to start this Andriol therapy he's recommended just yet. I want to see if decreasing the morphine will staighten out my low testosterone. Does anyone know if long term use of morphine can bring down the testosterone THAT MUCH??
Also, the ultrasound showed a 3 cm epididymal cyst. Can THIS cause low testosterone?? Is it a good idea to have this cyst removed surgically??
Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
