Polish translation:Niezle sie ostatnio przerazil. Myslal, ze ma raka.
Explanation:
ewentualnie: Jego zycie bylo ostatnio istnym pieklem.

zastanawiam sie tylko, czy jest do tego jeszcze jakis szerszy kontekst, bo tego zwrotu 'to have a hell of the time' uzywa sie zwykle w sensie pozytywnym: bawi sie jak nigdy dotad, odpuszcza sobie za wszystkie czasy, itd.
