Brief Answer:
Yes.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Welcome to Healthcare Magic!

It is good to know that you are better and are recovering. Although you haven't had your periods for the last ten years, you are still young and have many more years of reproductive life. It is possible for your menses to return when you gain weight and your body heals. Once menses return, it would be possible for you to conceive. Please do not worry about the future. Just concentrate on getting healthier and stronger, taking things one day at a time.

Let me know if I can you help you further.

Best wishes.
