So I just read an article about how doctors don’t really know anything about long term cancer survivors and how their treatments affect their health many years after the fact. I kind of already knew that (from being a cancer survivor and dealing with doctors), but still. Awesome.
I was actually going to link to a site listing the long term side affects of the drugs I was given 20+ years ago, but lo and behold… such a site doesn’t seem to actually exist. The information out there refers to side effects while in treatment, not what happens after. So what does that mean?? (Honest question. I really don’t know.)
First of all, let me point out that without treatment, I don’t really know where I’d be today. Or if I’d be today. And let me also point out that one of the long term side affects I could find listed was infertility.
I present to you the evidence of my post chemo fertility:
