My husband and I are ready for another baby. Seems simple enough, right? Oh to have the days back when a decision like this would be simple and cancer played no part in the process! I finished treatment in June, only radiation no chemo. I had a clean MRI and chest x-ray. So far every thing looks good. I visited my OBGYN today and she gave me the green light to start trying to get pregnant buttoldme to check with my oncologist just tobbe sure that pregnancy hormones wouldn't increase my risk for a recurrence. I'm still waiting to hear back from m Onco,but my guess is he'll say that he can't answer that question because my cancer is rare. Most of what I find on the Internet is related to women being diagnosed with breast cancer during pregnancy. There just isn't a ton of info on pregnancy after H&N cancer. I know this is a long shot, but does anyone have any info on this subject or has anyone been in a similar situation? I'm ready to move on with life but don't want to be irresponsible by making a decision based on emotion alone. Thanks for any feedback friends!
