I had a laparotomy six weeks ago to remove my Stage I ovarian cancer. I had my right ovary and tube removed, but they were able to leave everything else. They did extensive staging, and everything else came back just fine. Because they caught it so early I do not need to have any further treatment right now.
My husband and I were trying to get pregnant when the cancer was discovered, and my doctor has encouraged me to try to get pregnant as soon as possible, since the chance of reoccurance in the other ovary is pretty high. There may be some scar tissue, which could make getting pregnant a little tricky.
Have any of you gotten pregnant after your cancer treatment? I'm just looking for any bit of hope I can find! Thanks!
