It’s not an easy question to confront, but for Dr Liz O’Riordan, it wasn’t optional. Having experienced breast cancer from both sides of the operating table, and been robbed of the personal and professional future she had dedicated her whole life to creating, Liz was not only left rebuilding her physical, mental & emotional wellbeing but also her very life purpose.
Liz’s new mission is changing the landscape of cancer care by discussing the things other people don’t. This episode is no exception!
ABOUT MY GUEST: DR LIZ O'RIORDAN
Dr Liz O’Riordan is an author, broadcaster and international speaker. In 2015 she was diagnosed with Stage 3 breast cancer whilst working as a consultant breast surgeon. She returned to work after chemotherapy, surgery and radiotherapy but in 2018 she had a locoregional recurrence on her chest wall. Side effects of treatment meant that she could no longer operate. She co-wrote The Complete Guide to Breast Cancer with Professor Trisha Greenhalgh and is a powerful patient advocate and is passionate about educating health care professionals about what life is really like after a cancer diagnosis. She has just launched a podcast called Don’t Ignore The Elephant where she talks about the things no-one else talks about with patients, like sex, exercise and death.
