After care and advice

I have been very disappointed in the lack of information I was given following my op. I was very positive right from the start, but have become increasingly low about the healing of my breast. I would have liked to be told about support groups in my area so that I could have talked to someone in the same situation, but all inquiries I have made have led nowhere.

Hi Ayejaye,

Sorry you are feeling low and it sounds like you are feeling a little isolated.
Have you spoke to you BCN about support groups? Sometimes groups advertise in hospital waiting rooms, there was a group advertised in the waiting room in both oncology and radiotherapy waiting rooms.
I think there are some groups on facebook aswell, I don’t do facebook myself but I have seen others mention it.

Hope you can find something that will help.
