Struggling with lyphodema

Hi, I live in Somerset and recently I have been diagnosed with Lymphoma? 

I am struggling with so much with the lymphoma issues? 

Is there any support groups in taunton? 

  • Welcome to the forum Quantockroad24. although I'm sorry to hear you have been diagnosed with lymphoma and are struggling with lymphoedema.

    Hopefully some of our members will share their experiences and advice with you soon, but if you'd like to discuss any of this with one of our cancer nurses, you can give them a call on 0808 800 4040, Monday - Friday between 9a.m - 5p.m. They are very supportive, and insightful, and will do all they can to help.

    In regards to support groups in your local area, I can see the Somerset NHS Foundation Trust offer a range of support services to anyone diagnosed with cancer, but if you are specifically looking for a lymphoma support group then the charity Lymphoma Action may be able to help, as well as your GP.

    I hope this helps Quantockroad24 and you're able to get the help and support you're seeking soon.

    Kind regards,
