It's been 15 years since I've had chemo/radiation/surgery [abdominal cancer]. The last year and a half I've had onset of HEAT/SUN INTOLERANCE. Can't find any info out there regarding how to treat this, if it's from chemo, or what. I can be in direct sunlight less than 5 minutes in very mild temperatures and just began to wilt quickly........then done for the day. Anyone else out there had this long term issue come up. Help! Any ideas greatly appreciated. Regards, Hal

I am just about 9 years out from my first treatment of head and neck cancer and I have a lot of side effects. Mostly I am always cold, I love the heat when it is about 80 or 85 degree, I have no problems being in the sun. So I guess I am just the opposite of what you are, rad & chemo effects us all in different ways.
