Francia Raisa Reveals Selena Gomez Faced Life-Threatening Complication After Kidney Transplant

That's exactly what the former Secret Life Of An American Teenager star did for her bestie Selena Gomez when doctors hit her with the bad news that she needed a transplant, but the wait list was seven to ten years long.

Speaking to W magazine, Francia said: "I didn't want to eat, I didn't want to drink anything".

Selena Gomez had a near-fatal complication after receiving a kidney transplant from her dear friend Francia Raisa.

Raise said she recalled waking up from her donor surgery a few hours later to find a text from Gomez that said, "I'm really scared".

'They had to take her into emergency surgery and get a vein from her leg and build a new artery to keep my kidney in place.

Raisa donated her kidney to Gomez over the summer, but the singer first made the news public via an Instagram post in September showing the two of them side-by-side in hospital beds. "She could have died", Francia revealed.

"Recovery was hard", the 29-year-old confessed.

In the same interview, the Grown-ish actress recalled the moment she chose to donate a kidney to her best friend.

Francia also claimed that Selena "felt bad" asking her pal to undergo surgery to save her life, but the actress insisted she was happy to help.

The grownish star says that while "recovery was hard", for her, it was almost fatal for the "Wolves" singer.

Explaining that a normal kidney transplant surgery lasts for about two hours, Selena in an interview reportedly said, "I'm very grateful that there are people who know what to do in that situation". "I couldn't open the door". "Her grandparents are my grandparents now and so I have this extension of a family and it's been really awesome".

'2018 I am just enjoying, ' she continued. The 25-year-old singer told the Today show that she began hyperventilating and "freaking out" because of the pain she started experiencing after undergoing the transplant. Then Gomez fell to the floor and started crying. I was like, 'What is wrong with you?' She said, 'I need a new kidney. I love you so much sis. "We all have our moments, so I just let her do her thing, I didn't ask questions". And it just came out of me, and I said, "I'll get tested".
