Selena Gomez Reveals Her Kidney "Flipped" and Other Dramatic Transplant Details

Bieber dressed in a white hoodie and Gomez in a sweatshirt gave the paps clicks of the day

In mid-September, Selena Gomez revealed she'd undergone a kidney transplant in an Instagram post that promised more details to come.

"I was freaking out".

She added, "Apparently one of the arteries had flipped".

"I hope this inspires people to feel good, to know that there is really good people in the world", Gomez said. After the successful operation, the best friends healed together. Gomez also said that they were on bed rest and only allowed to walk for an hour each day. "You can't do any stairs or anything insane".

It was hard because you constantly need to ask for help. The night before the surgery, the friends braided their hair and shared an extravagant meal. 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.

Selena says that her kidneys began to fail before she was told she needed a transplant. She teased the discussion with a clip where she talks about Francia's incredible kidney donation. So her best friend, actress Francia Raisa, donated one of her kidneys. I hadn't asked anything. "That's not real", she said. "(But) she loves Selena, and so she was torn".

After the incident, the two unidentified SEALs were flown out of Mali and placed on administrative leave, the Times reports. Melgar's death, the New York Times reported citing unnamed military officials, may have been caused by strangulation.

Because Raisa was agreeing to serious surgery, she had to write a will, in case the outcome of the procedure wasn't as planned. "I don't think what we went through was easy". The list is seven to 10 years long. "I'm not trying to be loud about it: It was time to use my platform to help". I was like, "Of course I'll get tested"'.

As we reported earlier, Gomez and Bieber were spotted hanging out at Gomez's home last weekend and again this weekend, grabbing breakfast and attending church together in Westlake Village, Calif.

The statement included: "So I found out I needed to get a kidney transplant due to my Lupus and was recovering". But there was help in her future, thanks to her generous friend.

'There aren't words to describe how I can possibly thank my handsome friend Francia Raisa. "She gave me the ultimate gift and sacrifice by donating her kidney to me". I am incredibly blessed. "I didn't realize how much of it was affecting my body".

Her announcement triggered a wave of donations to The Lupus Research Alliance: $500,000 was raised in response to it, the highest amount it has ever received.

The Weeknd previously dated Bella Hadid for a year before they split in November 2016, and Gomez dated Bieber for three years, from 2011 to 2014.
