Should I second guess my surgeon?

I was recently diagnosed with testicular cancer and will be having surgery next week to remove the testicle with the tumor. Should I be thinking about preserving sperm yet?

When I asked my surgeon she said that that would be something to worry about later, when we know what exactly my chemo regimen is going to look like. We dont know because with this kind of thing biopses come after its been removed, not before. I've been reading that the timeline between surgery and chemo can be extremely short which makes me think that getting a deposit in before surgery might be a good idea.
Does anyone have experience with this kind of thing? Is there some other place I can look? I guess I'm looking for reassurance that I'm not jumping the gun before calling the fertility clinic.
