Dear Masto

I would suggest that you sort the gastric cancer problem out first before attempting to conceive. However should you be going through intensive radio and chemotherapy it would be recommended that some form of egg preservation or ovarian tissue preservation be considered first so as to ensure that you have a source or supply of eggs once recovery has occurred.
