Best Answer

I have been taking various forms of chemotherapy for 3 years, and recently at a doctor's appointment found out that I am two inches shorter than I was before chemo. I have some cancer in my spine and have had Back pain the past 6 months, so that may also be a factor. I am 30 years old, by the way.
