I had Hodgkins... I was so very lucky to have found it early... I was stage one. The only place I had affected nodes was in my neck. I did 4 chemo treatments and 21 days of radiation. My oncologist told me she really didn't feel I'd have much trouble conceiving because the chemo drugs they use for Hodgkins Lymphoma are not extremely damaging to fertility/eggs. She was right, apparently, because I got pregnant twice now since then (one miscarriage) so I guess I'm still very fertile. I feel very, very lucky!
