In brief: Possibly.

If one or both of your ovaries are functioning sufficiently to continue ovulating, then theoretically conception is possible.
However, you should consider seeing an obstetrician, a gynecologist, and a fertility specialist to discuss the risks of becoming pregnant while dealing with ovarian cancer, both for your health and future fetal health as well.

In brief: Rarely

Unless most of your reproductive organs where left intact, it is unlikely.

In brief: How was the stage

Determined in this case.
Stage ic ovarian cancer can only be determined through surgery which most of the time will involve total hysterectomy, removal of both ovaries and tubes, pelvic and para aortic lymph node biopsies, omentectomy, and peritoneal biopsies. There are few rare ovarian cancers that the uterus and remaining ovary can be left in place. In those situations it's possible.
