6 days ago i was that 26 years old who was about to receive a double lung transplant. Now i'm a whole new person, i got tubes up my chest, my skin feels like rice krispies but at least i can finally breathe, and live. AMA!
My name is Alex Danis, i'm 26 years old, from Montreal, Canada, and last thursday you might have seen My AMA about receiving a lung transplant the very same night
The surgery went exceptionally well and i am recovering faster than expected. even though i have four 8 inches tubes stuffed up my chest, a "bad ass mother***** scar", and possibly some nerve damage in my right hand, doctors are impressed by my recovery so far.
What's important is i feel like a whole new person. Although i've never believed in the concept of post-surgery, or post-accident "illuminations", i legitimately believed who i was died on that operating table and i woke up a whole new individual. Life is in front of me, and i can finally make the best of it.
The feedback i've been getting from reddit has been overwhelming and most importantly heartwearing. I have been asked to do a post-surgery AMA by a few of you so here i am!
Alright, so ask me anything!
