If your doctor is not keen on you taking the risk I would listen, and consider a surrogate
(if biological children are really important to you and Karma) or adoption... it is possible to adopt a newborn (though I believe the waiting list is quite long and there can be severe disappointments if the birth mother changes her mind). I would also suggest you consider fostering... it can be heartbreaking when they return to their parents, but you will have made a positive change to a child's life, and shared your love with those who really need it.
Personally... I think I would opt for fostering, while in the queue to adopt...
I actually like the idea of a surrogate too. But that's not really in a man's power.
I think if my partner/s were ok with that, I'd love to take that road though. It's almost like adopting your own children.
