Patient Authors – Stephen Henstridge

In the early hours of Thursday, September 26th 2019, Stephen Henstridge underwent a bilateral double lung transplant – in other words both of his lungs were replaced. This book is the story of what Stephen remembers of the extraordinary journey to his recovery. It is also a story of one man’s determination to recover and the support he received from his family, friends and his medical team. Once you start this book, you will not be able to put it down.

I first met Stephen a couple of months ago as he was recovering from treatment for Head and Neck cancer. This was related to the HPV virus which was present (undetected) in his new lungs. I suspect a new book about this episode in his life will follow.
