Just diagnosed with cancer-testicular cancer

I have just been recently diagnosed with cancer and have been on the fence on keeping my SO in my life. We have always dreamed on having a family and with her already having trouble with having kids due to her moms side of the family having fertility issues, we knew it would be a struggle in the beginning. Now that I recently got diagnosed with testicular cancer, I feel as if we won’t have that opportunity and that if she stays around or with me that I’ll rob her of her dreams in having kids in the future. In all honesty, it’s a lot of overwhelming ideas that are flying in my head right now and other family issues that I just don’t think it’s a good idea to keep her around. I don’t know what to do anymore.

Hi Jesseth. Sorry to hear of your diagnosis. Try to get as much information about the effects of your cancer on fertility. It’s always such an anxious time at the start of this journey .  Don’t make any major decisions while you’re emotional and still in the early stages.  Hope you’ve got lots of good medical people around you.
