One Year Later: Egg Harvesting, Struggling Mental Health

Hey guys,

At 21 I was diagnosed with a grade 2 astrocytoma in my left frontal lobe. May 2016 I had surgery and then a month later I was told I needed radiation and chemo. I was told if I did chemo I could become infertal and that was the one thing in life that I really really feared. I had to make a heartbreaking choice in 24 hours to have my eggs harvested or not to. I made the choice to freeze my eggs and a year later I still really struggling with what has happened. I get choked up when I bring it up, I think about it all the time. I feel alone knowing that I will probably not be able to have kids the natural way. Does anyone out there feel the same way?
