Selena Gomez Gets Emotional In This New Video About Her Life-Saving Surgery

Emotional tale Selena Gomez was rushed back into surgery after she awoke from her life-saving kidney transplant earlier this year

'I started to attempt to fall asleep, and in the middle of that process, I started hyperventilating and there was so much pain, ' said Gomez. That's when she immediately volunteered to get tested to donate. She was weeks away from dialysis and unable to find a match in her family when Raisa, 29, volunteered to get tested.

"The fact that she was a match, I mean, that's unbelievable", Gomez said.

When Raisa realized that her friend was becoming weak, she shared a home with Gomez. "And I asked what's wrong", Raisa said.

Raisa insisted and went through the blood and urine tests as well as psychological and physical evaluations to make sure she was a fit candidate. "She chucked it and she started crying".

Francia described the day she found out just how sick Selena really was. And before they went to the hospital, a friend came over and braided their hair. However, the fear was there. "I had to write a will, which is scary because there's no guarantee you'll wake up".

She learned that the kidney had turned around in her body and that she needed to go back into surgery. "My teeth - I was grinding - I was freaking out".

The DLC features a new set of campaign missions set after the conclusion of the Destiny 2 story. This comes as a disappointment to most Guardians due to how expansions released for Destiny 1.

She added, "Apparently one of the arteries had flipped". "I waited for the right time to talk about it because I am in a great place, and I'm very healthy", she told Billboard in 2016.

The recovery process was "humbling" and "brutal".

"You feel she saved your life?" They also remained on bed rest, walking for only one hour each day.

'There aren't words to describe how I can possibly thank my lovely friend Francia Raisa.

Even though Gomez managed to keep her operation under wraps until she was ready to share it herself in September, it sounds like the issues that led to the transplant had been happening for some time. Later that day, the ex-flames, 23- year-old Bieber and 25-year-old Gomez were spotted chilling at a mansion in the city that "Sorry" star rents.

After the complications were corrected, Gomez and Raisa were on strict bedrest for awhile, but they stayed together while they recovered.

Federal Court Blocks Trump's Transgender Military Ban
A federal judge on Monday partially blocked President Trump's ban on transgender recruits to the military . Transgender individuals were to be allowed to enlist in the military effective January 1, 2018.

Gomez says she hopes their story will inspire others to follow in their footsteps.

'She gave me the ultimate gift and sacrifice by donating her kidney to me. I am incredibly blessed.

Gomez has been open about her battle with lupus for several years, and first revealed in 2015 that she'd undergone chemotherapy to treat the disease.

In the case of lupus nephritis, which is lupus that affects the kidneys, the drugs used to prevent the body from rejecting the kidney are the same or similar as those used to treat lupus, and it is uncommon for lupus to return in the new kidney, according to the National Kidney Foundation.

While her illness was at a "life or death" point before the transplant, Gomez's health has now been transformed.
