I'm nearly two years on since finishing chemo and a year since the end of herceptin.
It's great to read about everyone's experience with fertility after treatment. I've just turned 38, and have no children. I would really like to try for a baby. I didn't have any egg freezing or anything and for me, i'd be of the mind that if it happens naturally, great, if not, if wasn't to be.
i'm constantly back and forth with moving forward and living my life as i want to, and back to 'oh what if' and should i just accept my lot and forget about my dreams of a child or any major commitments incase something bad happens. I know that no one hasa magic crystal ball, and anything can happen, but i'm just scared.
I have spoken to my GP, and she is very pro me trying, but my oncologist isn't the most approachable and i generally leave his office more scared than when i went in. I'm in a country where have a great public health system, we don't have a choice of oncologist, so i'm not sure if i want a meeting with him to be honest.
My cancer was her2 + and hr negative, decisions, decisions. I'm not sure what my question is, just sharing, as i'm sure there are others in this predicament.
lots of love and hope to all
