I am 21 and from just down the road (Bridgend) I have had a right mstectomy with full removal of lyph nodes and am still waiting on a reconstruction since i've just finished Chemo on the 6th of march. I know how you feel with no friends popping around, I was diagonised in august last year and no one came to see me and most of them acted as if i was infectious. Although my dad and his family was supportive i live with my mother and she leaves me in my room all day and doesn't bother with me most days, If you ever need to chat just let me know, i know what it feels like to be alone through this.
Hi, I am also 34 and from Brynhyfryd (just down the road from you) I had a left mastectomy & reconstruction 2 weeks ago, also lymph node clearance under my armpit. Went today to have my drains removed, still awaiting my results. I also had my dressings removed today, so it was the first time I saw my new breast, I had to have the nipple removed, so it looked so strange and I got quite upset. Are you having treatment at Breast Clinic in Singleton? Who is your Breast Care Sister?
Hiya, sorry to hear about your diagnosis. It's really cr@ppy, this breast cancer isn't it? 😞
There should be quite a few ladies along to chat with you here and I bet you get as much support as you need here. This forum was a lifeline for me when I was diagnosed in 2010, aged 36. I have recently set up a Facebook group for young women (pre screening age) with a breast cancer diagnosis to chat together in private. There are over 200 of us already, and you would be most welcome to join us, but don't feel obliged to!
There's a thread on here explaining it which I shall bump up for you, but if you search for Younger Breast Cancer Network (uk) on Facebook, you should find us, and just send us a private message on the page and explain who you are, your name, age, confirm you've personally had a bc diagnosis and where you heard about us, and then we can send you a friend request.
Be kind to yourself, your life's been derailed by a ten ton truck and it takes a bit of getting used to before you can come out the other side
