I'm not so sure - I've had lots and lots about this via my MIL and SIL who both had hysterectomies (MIL post-menopausal, SIL very young), and there has never, ever been any discussion of prescribing testosterone, merely oestrogen and / or oestrogen precursors.

Not sure why the Doc was so indiferrent to prescribing the T.
Maybe the idea of having / maintaining an active sex life is just something the doctor doesn't consider as a "normal" request, compared with (say) managing menopausal symptoms? Who can say. However, I suspect that had your wife not mentioned testosterone therapy, the doctor wouldn't have brought it up.

Was the doctor as forthright about the risks associated with oestrogen replacement, as she was with testosterone?

Yes the doc was specific about risks and side effects for all 3 - oestrogen, progesterone, and testosterone.
All low risk for my W.

And tonight - while we skipped intercourse - she clearly felt desire. And the long, slow back massage, back scratch she gave me as a warmup sure was joyful.

It felt great to be connected.
