Questioning GP’s diagnosis saved mother’s life

AS Liz Irwin fell sicker and sicker she didn’t dare question the GP’s diagnosis of her illness.
The Oxfordshire teaching assistant lost two-and-a-half stone as she went back and forth several times with worsening stomach complaints.
After pressing for a different verdict in December 2009 she was hit with news which left her chilled.
She had an aggressive form of bowel cancer and would need a life-saving operation.
Now, five years on and fighting fit, the 33-year old has decided to speak out as she feels her life is finally back together.
The Chalgrove mother-of-two said: “It is seen as something of an old person’s disease and I hope that by speaking out after years of silence I can break that misconception.
