In brief: DHEA

For men dhea will not be strong enough to replace testosterone deficiency.
However, you are likely low on dhea so taking it will likely benefit you anyways. Based upon your history, i would recommend that you be evaluated by anti-aging specialist who could shed light on the testosterone controversy as well as talk to you about heart/stroke prevention because it gets a lot more complex.
