  • 'I was freaking out': Selena Gomez reveals she was rushed BACK into surgery after transplant when her new kidney

Now, Gomez says her health has improved tremendously. "I knew that she hadn't been feeling well", Francia said. But she was living with Raisa at the time, and one day, Gomez just broke down and told her everything. She chucked it and she started crying.

She said: "I had to write a will, which was scary because there's no guarantee you'll wake up".

After Gomez shared that she needed a transplant, but the list to get one was years-long, the idea to get tested "just vomited out" Raisa's mouth.

The testing process to determine if someone is a donor match for a patient usually takes about six months, Francia said, but because Selena was in an "emergency situation", it was done in a day. Her illness had progressed "to the point where it was really life or death", and she believes her friend saved her life. "I am incredibly blessed", she added.

The first part of Selena Gomez and Francia Raisa's TODAY interview is finally here!

The singer revealed she had undergone a kidney transplant on social media last month.

"I was freaking out", Gomez said.


"I remember waking up two hours after [the surgery], I saw my mom, I saw my stepdad, and I felt okay". They were on bed rest and were only allowed to walk around for one hour each day. "I didn't want to ask a single person in my life" Gomez said in the same interview.

The limitations were particularly tough for Francia to get used to when it came to bathing and changing. "I'm very grateful that there are people who know what to do in that situation", she added. "I think one of the most humbling experiences was needing help to, like, put on underwear". "She gave me the ultimate gift and sacrifice by donating her kidney to me".

Gomez surprised many with the news of her transplant on September 14 by sharing a photograph of her and Francia in their hospital gowns holding hands to her 128 million Instagram followers.

"My kidneys were just done", the 25-year-old sais on United States breakfast programme The Today Show host on Monday.

Selena revealed in 2015 she has been suffering from the complications of Lupus, an illness that attacks your healthy tissue and your organs. "It was a brutal process".

"I went through heartbreak this year and you left the studio and drove out of your way to come see me and comfort me". My blood pressure is better.

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