  • 6 Years since finishing Chemo

    It's been a while since I last wrote here. A lot has been going on.
    I am a recent father of twins (!) and was able to use my sperm. We had to undergo some treatment so my wife could get pregnant, but because of her. My Sperm was just fine, after 3 years of being useless.
    Have done CT scan last week and bloodwork. Tomorrow appointment with my Urologist. Let's see how it is.
    I'm here because I need to say - never been so afraid of these exames. Now there's so much to lose.
    2 years ago had a little scare because of bloodwork which had to be repeated - it was all good after all. But, now I just don't know.
    With kids, this is so much harder when the time comes to relive the problem (although i am hoping everything is fine).

    Thank U for reading.

    Congratulations!!! Twins is wonderful to hear, and I can't imagine the enjoyment and excitement they bring. Great to hear about the 6 years clear too. The check ups are sure to bring more anxiety, after having kids, but I have full faith they are being done just to confirm what we already know and that is that the chemo worked.

    Well done.

        Congrats on being 6 years out and on twins! That's fantastic!

        I hear you on being a father and having a family adding an entirely new dimension to the anxieties of cancer survivorship. Enjoy each day and have faith!
