in bromley/kent area?


Anyone in the kent area that would like to chat about what your going through while dealing with breast cancer? I was diagnosed in January this year with G3 IDC medullary phenotype high grade DCIS tn. Would be nice to chat to someone going through the same thing.
I have had lympectomey, chemo and second op friday just gone as the margin had 1mm of pre cancerous cells. Now just waiting radiotherapy.


Bumping up for Loulabelle

Hi there I live 15 mins from bromley. I grew up in Bickley. Where are you being treated? Im was at lewisham hosp but now being treated at guys hosp…I was diagnosed with 5 areas of DCIS in my right breast so told i needed a mastectomy. Due to family history I opted for a double mastectomy and got home yesterday after the op. Feeling ok just sore. Cant wait til I have more mobility. The more you look around the more you see people being diagnosed with breast cancer at a young age. When I was having biopsies part of me thought I couldnt have it at this age. So surreal to think a few months ago I was reading about angelina jolie and her mastectomy journey and fast forward a few months and thats me aswell! I certainly didnt see it coming. Feeling relieved the op is over now though just uncertain about the next steps.

Hi laura
I’m being treated at The Royal Marsden, London.
I was diagnosed in January this year, I have had lumpectomy in feb , chemo (x3 fec x3 tax) last one was completed 1 July, second op about a week ago as the margin had pre cancerous cells. Given all clear Friday just gone so no further ops thank god. Just radio to go.
I was diagnosd with TN (although genetic result was negative) no family history, grade 3 IDC 14mm with medullary phenotype and high grade DCIS to total of 24mm, lymphnodes neg.
Yes it is such a shock isn’t it. Even now I can’t believe it. Its is scary that more people are being diagnosed at a young age.
What are your next steps once you have recovered? How old are you? I was 32 when diagnosed.

Hi Im from Bromley Kent, you?

Hi I’m 54 from Bromley was diagnosed 2 yrs ago this july with IDC on tamoxifen but may have to change after a polyp on cervix

Hi, just wanted to let you know about we meet up once a month in Purley. May be able to help if you just want to chat or ask questions - someone else might have been through same as you… Good luck with the rest of your treatment xx

Hi , just joined . I’m in tonbridge but know
Bromley well and have friends there. I’ve
Had lumpectomy and node removal end of
March and thought I would be given radiotherapy only . I’m now having to take the
Chemo course even though nodes were clear . Very daunting as I’ve obviously left it as long as possible to agree . Thinking if doing the cold cap as my worst fear is the hair loss etc .
How did you get in ?
Hope to hear
