왁자지껄

A teenager has been left with the lungs of an 80-year-old lifelong smoker after vaping for just six months in an attempt to give up cigarettes.

Ewan Fisher, 19, from Nottingham, spent weeks in intensive care after his lungs failed the night before he was due to start his GCSE exams.

Aged 16, he needed an artificial lung to survive and spent 10 weeks in hospital as doctors fought to save his life.

He is believed to have suffered an exaggerated immune response to chemicals found in e-cigarette fluid.

Doctors have blamed the issue on his vaping - something the aspiring heavyweight boxer took up to help him stop smoking so he could improve his fitness with the ambition of turning professional.

But that is now a distant dream for the 19-year-old, who gets out of breath walking up stairs and admits his 65-year-old grandfather, who has smoked for 40 years, vape haven if fitter than him.

He has also put on five stone since going into hospital and suffers with mental health issues.

Ewan told FEMAIL: 'They tried telling me that I'd make a full recovery, but it's nearly four years on and I still really struggle.

'They said my lungs would make a full recovery within two years but it's been a lot longer and I wouldn't even say they're at 60 per cent.

'I used to be really healthy.

I used to run every night and I can't do anything anymore. When it's hot it messes with my lungs. I'm on steroids to help them cope.

'I can't run, I really struggle up hills. It's ruined all my joints. My life's changed massively.

'My granddad is fitter than me and he's 65.
When I was in hospital they said I had the lungs of an 80-year-old life-long smoker and I'd only vaped for five or six months.'

Ewan, pictured in hospital, explained: 'They said my lungs would make a full recovery within two years but it's been a lot longer and I wouldn't even say they're at 60 per cent'

Ewan hit the headlines last December when horrifying pictures of him in intensive care surfaced.

Despite being under age, he said 'it was easy' to buy either cigarettes or e-cigarettes in his home city in 2017, and he used to smoke half a pack a day.

In May that year, Ewan was finding it harder and harder to breathe. When his lungs began failing he quickly ended up on life-support in intensive care in Queen's Medical Centre in Nottingham.

He was taken to Leicester and attached to an artificial lung or ECMO (extra-corporeal membrane oxygenation) machine.

Since leaving hospital Ewan has just finished a Level 3 BTEC in business and finance and is hoping to train as an accountant. He also travels around the country talking to school kids about the dangers of vaping

Ewan developed a condition called hypersensitivity pneumonitis - something he was breathing in was setting off his immune system, with catastrophic consequences.
