I am 28 years old and since June 2009 have been battling Acute Myeloid Leukemia. In August 2010, I had an unrelated stem cell transplant, and am about to celebrate my 1 year transplant anniversary!!
I still on a lot of medications (32 pills a day... but no chemo/radiation anymore). My oncologist has told my DH and I that I could skip my Depo shot now and try to resume having a family (I was 7 weeks pregnant when diagnosed and had to terminate my pregnancy). I am really nervous about this (still in that stage of a headache must = a brain tumor) but I'd love to stop taking my shot and let it get out of my system, and hopefully still be fertile... I have about a 20% chance that the transplant didn't make me infertile.
Does anyone have suggestions or thoughts on this? It's exciting and scary at the same time... My DH and I prayed so hard for a baby, and we've fought so long these last few years. Hopefully this is the appropriate board for me! If it isn't, please direct me to a more appropriate board
Nice to meet everyone!
