Did he have this to look forward to until he was forty-five or so

You used a magnifying glass and focused the sun on them as they crawled in and out of their hill.
The result was fricasseed formicants. Only these days, when one of his headaches was hatching,
his brain was the anthill and his eyes turned into twin magnifying glasses. He was twenty-one.
Did he have this to look forward to until he was forty-five or so, when
Dr Haskell said they might let up?
Hi.
This is Under the Dome by Stephen King. I'm having a trouble understanding the underlined sentence.
What does this stand for? The migraines?
Context: Junior Renny is suffering from migraines. When he was a kid, he used a magnifying glass and burned up some ants crawling into their hill.
Thanks in advance.

    Yes, the headaches ... did he have this (the experience and pain of the headaches) to look forward to until he was forty-five or so?
