Some of you may have seen my posts from my Husbands journey and how worried we were about fertility post surgery and chemo. I'm sharing this for other younger people who may have similar worries.
In Oct 2020 he had LAR surgery to remove a rectal tumour and it was found he had lymph node involvement and would need Chemo. He had 3 months of CAPOX, ending March 2021.
We were advised to wait 6 months before trying for a baby, which we were planning to, however a higher power intervened and 5.5months after his chemo ended we found out we are pregnant with out first baby!
We had banked sperm just in case, the oncologist even said she had never known anyone become infertile after CAPOX But she wouldn't put her life on it. It was such a relief to not need any intervention and for things to just happen.
We had our 12wk scan yesterday, baby is growing perfectly and all looks as it should. We feel truly blessed
