In brief: Yes

It's common to have low energy with any cancer, especially after treatment.
Men with testicular cancer usually have one or both testicles removed, which can lower testosterone levels, causing low energy. Other causes can include anemia, depression, and low thryoid hormone. Low energy should gradually improve over time after treatment is finished.

In brief: Depends

Everyone responds differently to the various cancer treatments.
Surgery, radiation therapy and chemotherapy can all cause fatigue (to varying degrees.) typically, cancer related fatigue is temporary and resolves a few weeks to months after treatment.
