Anyone in Dorset/East Devon IBC?

I have just been dx with IBC and wondered if there is anyone local to me also going through this…

Not sure about Dorset. I’m in North Devon, and there are quite a few ladies in the Bristol area.

Hi Claire, I am in Poole. Diagnosed with DCIS in June and had a bilat mx.

Hi Claire, I am in East Devon. Dx February Had WLE x 2 and SNB.Then radiotherapy and now on Tamoxifen for five years.

Thanks for your replies. I live in Bridport and was only diagnosed with IBC three weeks ago. Treatment has now started and am just beginning to come to terms with it all.
Are there any meet-ups or groups that anyone goes to? Just feeling a bit isolated sometimes!
