@Mrs. Harmony: I’m sure theres the option to freeze sperm before any treatment is to take place.  I’m so sorry about the bad news though.  I wish him a speedy and healthy recovery.  Stay strong!

Wow I am just utterly shocked. I read your rant the other day and this completely threw me for a loop. Good for him for going to get it checked out so quickly. I’m sorry about the bad news, but the good news is that it’s been detected and diagnosed, and now it can get treated. 


A happy story for you:

a couple of newlyweds in my town got the devastating news that the husband (only 23) had a vicious form of melanoma, and a giant tumor in his lung. In his interviews, he said he was likely going to die. But he beat it. Somehow, he beat it. Literally against all odds. He no longer needs treatments, and they are expecting their first baby next month, something that they thought the treatment would have ruined for them.


Wishing you all the very best!

*hugs* Don’t feel badly about venting about what is important to you. It’s ok to have multiple priorities- you’re just ready for the next steps in life. True, this diagnosis puts into perspective what is truly #1 and that is your SO in your life. He can beat this. You’ll get through it together. I pray for him a speedy recovery and kicking cancer’s ass!

I’m sorry – thats really hard. Cancer sucks, no ifs ands or buts about it.  He’s very lucky that he found it and got diagnosed right away.

BUT – sperm banking is absolutely an option, and the majority of men regain fertility if there are no additional complications. 

best wishes to both of you.

I’m so sorry, and don’t feel guilty or like a bad person for venting – we all need to vent sometimes, and wanting to move forward with a timeline is normal. But you’re right that something like this definitely puts everything into perspective and the focus on what is really important. Best of luck to the two of you, I hope it is contained to one area and easily removable – please keep us updated!
