Hi ladies first time posting on this group but I have an almost 20 month old which I am sure most of ypu do. He will be on the 7th of Novemver. I am 23 years old and they found cysts on my ovaries. My mother was 26 when she had ovarian cancer. I have another appointment to talk about my options my doctor wants me to get a hysterectomy. I always wanted 6 kids and now my not be able to have any more. Just a few months ago my fiance and I were talking about trying for another. We are considering adoption but that cost a lot.
Also with chemotherapy I am feeling like I will be to tired to handle my son. Just feeling overwhelmed.
I tried talking to my mother who by the time she was 31 had breast cancer twice and ovarian cancer. Chemo all three times. Two masectomys, and a hysterectomy. She said I didn't need to have anymore kids. Like really that isn't the only thing I am worried about. I was young and I seen how exhausted my mom was. How she missed important things in my life. I don't want that for my son.
I know people probably say this all the time but I am only 23, I am to young to have cancer. I feel like my sons childhood is being taken away from me. Sorry for the depressing woe me I just need someone who is supportive.
