Thank you and I hope to hear from someone soon
The following information should not replace the assessment and advice you have been receiving from your physician (cancer specialist, obstetrician, or any other healthcare provider). It is offered for your information only. Consult your physician.
There is no evidence that cases such as yours have an increased risk of malformations. Some women may experience difficulty with fertility. It is difficult to predict, but a woman who has had normal mentrual cycles may have good chances of success.
