I would completely agree. Just recently had a patient who recurred in the lymph nodes underwent surgical resection and now will start adjuvant nivolumab. Had to have a very difficult discussion about discontinuation of breast feeding as well as future fertility as she really would like to have more children. Not a conversation that came easily.

I believe in the patients for whom this is applicable this will be an important discussion upfront and included in the pretreatment teaching as with any other expected side effect.

Great question!
