So, I had my mastectomy 3 weeks ago now and I'm desperately trying to find younger women (I'm 32) who live in my area or a group who I can meet up with for a coffee/chat, or people who fancy going for a walk or know of any good post op exercise classes or even fancy a glass of wine! Anything really, it'd just be lovely to meet people who have been through or are going through this that aren't 60 plus!
I want to talk about guys, work, family, living situations, sex - all the stuff that runs through your head as a younger woman recovering with breast cancer.
I've searched online loads, been to numerous websites etc but all I can find is groups that seem to have lots of older ladies in it, or that operates miles away.
I live in Balham, so if anyone is in the area or not too far away please get in touch, maybe we could start our own group?

I've recently been diagnosied with Pagets, I'm 32years old - you're right there's not much out there, especially for younger women. I've started writing about my experience so far as I've found it really helps to get all those crazy thoghts out of your head, and maybe it'll help others one day too - http://adventuresofzomersetgirl.wordpress.com/
I'm going in for a skin sparing masectomy on Friday, I'm terrified but know it needs to be done and the most important thing of all is that y doing this I'm getting the cancer out and potentially saving my life. I'm sure that your friend appreciates all the wonderful support you are giving her, help her to stay strong and laugh as much as possible - it helps!
