Selena's friend and kidney donor says singer

While Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber have reportedly separated, Francia Raisa has unveiled new information bad in an interview with W Magazine: "After the operation, during which time I had given him a kidney, an artery disposed obliging surgeons to reconstruct an artery with a vein from his leg".

Francia and Selena waited weeks before telling anyone about the transplant because, according to FR, "Recovery was very hard for us, and we went through a depression at the time". "From my side, I could not eat or drink".

Speaking to W, the 29-year-old said: 'Selena did have a complication, too.

Hours after what they both had thought was a successful surgery, Francia woke up to a text from Selena telling her she was "really scared".

Raisa said doctors had to immediately take a vein from Gomez's leg and build a new artery to keep Gomez's new kidney stable. "She could have died". She chucked it and she started crying.

"My kidney was very active, and when it turned I broke an artery", Raisa quoted Gomez. The public only learned about it when Gomez revealed in a social media post that she had a kidney transplant. And she goes, 'I don't know what to do. Sel eventually broke the news to her fans in an emotional Instagram post on September 14, 2017.

The Secret Life of the American Teenager alum said she kept the news of the transplant private because she knew how hard recovery had been for Selena, 25.

Gomez had just had her tests done when she came home looking serious.

Grown-ish actress Francia has now explained how life-threatening the complication was in a new interview with W magazine.

'There was so much pain there, ' she recalled on the Today show. Raisa previously shared Gomez's second surgery took six-hours. "It was laparoscopic. Those mothers out there who had C-sections, I feel you".
