Selena Gomez Confesses That Francia Raisa Saved Her Life With The Transplant

Selena Gomez's BFF Francia Raisa Reveals Why She Decided to Give Her a Kidney

"I just really hope that we can help somebody", Gomez said tearfully.

"I knew that she hadn't been feeling well", said Raisa, who was Gomez's roommate at the time. As it happened, her new kidney was turning around inside her body, a complication that required a second six-hour surgery - four more hours than the initial two-hour procedure. Gomez's kidney apparently flipped inside her body, causing enormous pain and an additional surgery. She was scared about it all, but knew she wanted to do this for Gomez. 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.

"You're on bed rest, you're allowed to walk an hour a day", Gomez said".

'You can't do any stairs or play anything insane'.

In September, the Bad Liar singer took to her Instagram to share that she received a kidney from Francia - after learning that her organs failed as a result of her Lupus. I think one of the most humbling experiences was needing help to put on underwear'. The night before their surgeries, the duo weren't supposed to eat past midnight, so they stuffed their faces with "way too much food" up until then.

And right before the surgery, the two girls gave one another a peace sign before being wheeled off to the operating room.

Raisa immediately volunteered to get tested and found out she was a match, which Gomez believes is no coincidence.

Selena told Savannah her arthritis and lupus are gone, and says there's just a 3- to 5-percent chance her autoimmune disease will ever return. "I'm very grateful that there are people who know what to do in that situation", she added.

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

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

Raisa saved her life, Gomez said. "She couldn't open a water bottle one day and she chucked it and just started crying". I hadn't asked anything.

Raisa agreed to donate her organ on the spot. "I was freaking out", she said.

'And it just vomited out of me. I got to see you [Francia] and tell you I love you.

Selena Gomez is opening up about her kidney transplant over the summer, and it was even scarier than she first let on.

The statement included: "So I found out I needed to get a kidney transplant due to my Lupus and was recovering".
