Inside, my body had been bombarded by radiation, giving me the runs. The chemo made my nose and mouth bleed, and gave me mouth ulcers. Part of my colon has been removed, and I have a bag instead. I had regular throat convulsions in the night for up to five hours. My feet and hands were burning, and sensitive to the cold. My skin was hyper-sensitive to the sun.
