I had my tumour removed after my radiotherapy treatment. You’re fast-tracked through the treatment, so there’s not much time to process at each stage.
As Jeremy Hunt is Minister for Health, I named my tumour after him. Jeremy has been cut from my body and donated to science. I can think of no better tribute to the Rt Hon member for South West Surrey.
It took 8 days before I could eat again, and 10 days before I was discharged. Hospital food isn’t the most appealing, but the first taste of dry white bread and marmalade was sensational. My digestion has changed hugely since – to begin with, I couldn’t tolerate high fibre. I avoid rich food even now.
