In July 2015, I was diagnosed with Stage 3 breast cancer at the age of 40. I'd been working as consultant breast surgeon for just 2 years, and could not get my head around the fact that I had been diagnosed with the one illness I had spent my life learning how to treat. I was a fit, healthy triathlete. How on earth could I have breast cancer?

The only way I could cope with what was happening to me was to write a blog. The following pages take you with me, from diagnosis all the way through to moving on when my treatment finished.

This is who I am

1 March 2018

Almost a year ago, I wrote my last cancer-related blog - '
Who am I?'. After finishing my treatment and planning how to get back to work, whilst training for a half-ironman triathlon, I didn't have the time, energy or focus to continue blogging.
