  • conceiving after tc

    my husband and i have been married for almost 2 years and have tried conceiving for a year and a half. my husband had an undescended testicle when he was very young and then when he was 24 (he's 30 now) he had tc, had his left testicle removed and had the cancer spread to a lung, taking a small portion of his lung... with that said, he's now cancer free and has been in remission for 5 years... with all that information, does anyone have any advice on conceiving or what our chances are...?

    Hello Tllgood,

    You will find my recent post on the "Chemo and Fertility" thread, mentioning that I had a baby girl after my orchitectomy and chemo and now am expecting another. So, anything is possible.

    Did he have chemo? Radiation?

    I don't have any info on the chances, etc. but of course maybe he needs to do what he would do if he hadn't had cancer, which is to get a semen analysis and see how things look.

    Right side orchiectomy, March 2001, 4.5 cm tumor with probable vascular invasion. Chose surveillance.

    9.5 cm groinal lymph node tumor found in Dec. 2001

    Finished chemo (cisplatin/etopicide) in March 2002.

    Two healthy daughters born naturally after chemo, one in January 2004, another in November 2006.

    Continued remission to present
