Encouraging words from the man who survived double lung transplant and two battles with COVID-19 – “There is light at the end of the tunnel”

According to reports, the man reportedly survived a double lung transplant and two battles with COVID-19. The man needed a wheelchair to move and was confined to his home, taking 40 pills a day. But now, he’s walking and working. Kuhns is very optimistic, despite the fact he contracted COVID a second time just this month and was hospitalized for two days.

The man from Illinois, Brian Kuhns, returned home from Northwestern Memorial Hospital in 2020 after contracting COVID and surviving a double lung transplant. Kuhns reportedly said that he needed a wheelchair to move and was confined to his home, taking 40 pills a day.

Brian Kuhns reportedly said:

“I’m working a little bit, just answering the phones, because I’m pretty weak still. I can’t do what I used to do.”

Kuhns is very optimistic, despite the fact he contracted COVID a second time just this month and was hospitalized for two days.

The doctors gave him a warning after his lung transplant in 2020:

Brian Kuhns reportedly said:

“If I got COVID again, I’d probably die. So, I was scared. So, I didn’t go anywhere, you know what I mean?” 

But, after recovering from COVID-19 for a second time, he was hospitalized with an infection related to his lung transplant.

But, the brave man is still pushing forward and says that others should, too.

According to reports, Brian Kuhns said:

“Hang in there. Just keep going. Just try to get through it. There is light at the end of the tunnel. 

Try to create a plan, weekly and monthly, of what types of activities they will engage in, what types of normalcy can they create, so, they don’t have to make a decision every single time, like almost reinventing the wheel every time. They can follow their guideline of what they feel safe doing.

Rely on friends and family for support. If it wasn’t for them, I wouldn’t be here because they helped me through it all, got me back up on my feet. They did everything.”
