In brief: Certainly YES
Although chemotherapy and radiation can cause infertility in both men & women after treatment for lymphoma, some patients do recover years later and are able to conceive.
Several factors play into chances of regaining fertility - age ( younger the better), type & dose of chemo, amount & site of radiation, etc. Options are now available to try to preserve fertility prior to starting treatments.
