It's been more than six months since Selena Gomez had a kidney transplant that nearly took her life due to an emergency complication. While Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber have reportedly separated, Francia Raisa has unveiled new information awful in an interview with W Magazine: "After the operation, during which time I had given him a kidney, an artery disposed obliging surgeons to reconstruct an artery with a vein from his leg". A few hours after our surgery, I woke up and had a text from her that said, 'I'm really scared.' My kidney was very active, and when it turned I broke an artery.
In a recent interview with W Magazine, Raisa gave more details than she ever has and said the recovery process was hard for both of them.
However, Francia has now admitted that her friend almost died during the surgery after an artery broke. "From my side, I could not eat or drink".
She explained that she chose to donate after Gomez broke down while they lived together: "She was asking me about my day and she grabbed a water bottle out of the fridge and tried to open it and couldn't".
"So she's up and at it immediately and I had a hard time". "Selena did have a complications too".
The 25-year-old singer underwent the operation last year after it was discovered that her battle with Lupus - where the body's immune system attacks healthy tissue and organs - had left her in desperate need of a new kidney. She volunteered and did it. She chucked it and she started crying. The fact that she was a match, I mean that's unbelievable.
"I'm very aware some of my fans had noticed I was laying low for part of the summer and questioning why I wasn't promoting my new music, which I was extremely proud of", Gomez said.
Raisa revealed in an interview with W Magazine this week that just hours after the transplant was completed - Gomez could have died. We kind of just wanted to be normal and not have that attention on us.
Francia added that she even kept her operation when she was auditioning for her role on Grown-ish. "It was laparoscopic. Those mothers out there who had C-sections, I feel you". I've never had anything personal come out about me before.
