I am looking for information on women who have had children after breast cancer. I am 34 years old and am looking to still have children. Questions: How long before the chemo is out of my system? I had an estrogen positive tumor. Limp nodes were clear. Radiation was not necessary for me. The tumor was only three and a half cm long. They wanted me to take the chemo for precautionary measures. They now want me to take tomoxiphen also for precautionary measures. I am very concerned about the condition of fertility since I am still planning to have children. I understand the dangers involved and would like more information before I make some big decisions that will impact my life.
