Selena Gomez details kidney transplant in emotional 'Today' interview

Selena Gomez Opens Up About

Raisa was sharing a house with Gomez when she realized how sick her friend was becoming.

Selena Gomez has opened up about her kidney transplant for the first time since posting about the serious operation to her Instagram followers back in September.

"I got to the point where it was really kind of life or death".

Seeing her friend in such a a hard situation and knowing that it could take seven to ten years for Selena to become eligible for a kidney transplant led Francia to make a truly selfless decision.

She told fans that her lupus diagnosis was the one that had sent her kidneys into failure, and spoke out for the first time on the secret procedure she underwent. She chucked it and just started crying and I said, 'What's wrong?' And that's when she told me.

"One day she came home, and she was emotional", Raisa said.

'I'm thankful there are people that know what to do in that situation'. "I was like, 'Of course I'll get tested'".

'There aren't words to describe how I can possibly thank my handsome friend Francia Raisa. I love you so much sis, ' she praised her pal. "My mentality was to keep going", she said. "My teeth were like grinding, I was freaking out", Selena said.

'Until then I want to publicly thank my family and incredible team of doctors for everything they have done for me prior to and post-surgery.




"Apparently one of the arteries had flipped", she added.

The friends weren't just up and running around afterward-it was a tough recovery process.

"As soon as I got the kidney transplant, my arthritis went away", Selena said.

She also noted that girls were unable to shower. "I am beyond grateful that God would trust me with something that not only saved a life, but changed mine in the process", she said. I think one of the most humbling experiences was needing help to put on underwear'.

Raisa even had to write a will before donating a kidney.

Continuing the story, Francia shared, "My mum didn't wanna be there (in the hospital) until I woke up (after surgery)".

Selena Gomez, who attended the Third Annual "InStyle Awards" presented by InStyle at The Getty Center on October 23, 2017 in Los Angeles, opened up about her kidney transplant in a new interview. They also couldn't dress themselves or take a shower. My lupus -there's about a 3-5 percent chance it'll ever come back. "That's not real", Gomez added. My blood pressure is better. "So I actually got a space for us to be in together".

"I just hope that this inspires people to feel good".
