In brief: No
The standard surgery for endometrial cancer will remove both ovaries and your uterus and therefore you will not be able to have children after your surgery.

In brief: Endometrial cancer
If fertility sparing conservative management is successful, then yes.
After done having kids, we recommend having your uterus, tubes, and ovaries out before you develop another endometrial cancer.

In brief: No
A hysterectomy, meaning removal of your uterus, is a necessary part of treatment for invasive endometrial cancer.
That means you could not become pregnant or carry a pregnancy. However, eggs from your ovaries could be combined with your husband's sperm for in vitro fertilization and the embryo could be implanted in a surrogate.
