My fiance is 29 and was diagnosed with extragonadal mediastinal germ cell tumor (yolk sac) 4 weeks ago. He is on a vent because it has blocked his airway and collapsed his left lung. After 4 weeks of chemo it has not shrunk any. They said his tumor is the size of a grapefruit. If anyone has any experience with this?
Another question... we were wanting kids, does anyone know if chemo affects fertility and how long will it take to regain fertility if he survives (when he survives I believe he will survive).
