I have been diagnosed with ovarian cancer stage 2b after suffering a miscarriage. My left ovary has been removed but the cancer has spread to the right ovary. Cannot do IVF as the right ovary is very damaged. I am struggling to deal with the fact that I cannot have children and for me the cancer has always been secondary. The treatment suggested is a complete hysterectomy and chemo after.
Has anyone found themselves in this situation, I do not know if I should have the complete hysterectomy or leave my womb, which no one knows if there is cancer in that area. If I leave it will egg donor be viable?
My indecision is based on the fact that I really want children?
Please help with any advice!
