Stephen Sutton is known around the world for his philanthropic efforts since being diagnosed with cancer.
The 19-year-old has now made news in another way with this post on his facebook:
"Amongst frantic hand pointing and panicking I felt like I was like suffocating. Then I forced out an oval red stained solid object through my mouth.
My breathing and airway straight away felt clearer, but I spent the next hour violently coughing and choking, but then eventually my breathing once again stabilised.
Since then, my breathing has dramatically improved. I’m really stuck for the words of how to describe it. Throughout the night my throat was pretty sore but my 02 and other saturation levels are great. This morning I am relying on NO external oxygen to breath at all and I’m feeling bloody fantastic!!"
