A man from South Yorkshire who underwent a double-lung transplant has
thanked medical staff six months on.

Luke Palfreyman, 23, from Barnsley, has cystic fibrosis – an inherited
condition which causes sticky mucus to build up in the lungs and digestive
system – and had a double lung transplant.

Since the operation at Royal Papworth Hospital in Cambridge. Luke says he
has been going to the gym and is back riding horses “which is the biggest
thing I could have wished for”.

He says he can now blow 95% on a lung function test, and the last time he
was able to do that was 10 years ago.

“The team at Papworth and my surgeon are amazing and I can’t thank the
cystic fibrosis team at Leeds enough,” he says.

“They kept me alive before the transplant, they got me just right, they kept
me going. They all believed that it was going to come, and it did.”
