Serena Gomez nearly died after an artery broke during her kidney transplant - Francia Raisa reveals

It's been revealed that Selena Gomez who survived a kidney transplant last year, nearly lost her life during the surgery after an artery broke.  The 25-year-old singer underwent a secret kidney transplant,  made necessary by her battle with lupus, last May. Her best friend Francia Raisa donated the life-saving kidney. Francia has now admitted that her friend nearly died during the surgery after an artery broke.

 The 29-year-old actress who stars on TV series Grown-ish told W that:

Selena did have a complication, too. A few hours after our surgery, I woke up and had a text from her that said, “I’m really scared.” My kidney was very active, and when it turned I broke an artery. ‘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. She could have died.
 The surgery, which usually lasts two to three hours, ended up lasting six hours due to the ‘flipped’ kidney.
 Francia recalled why she volunteered to donate her kidney to Selena. She said:

‘She was asking me about my day and she grabbed a water bottle out of the fridge and tried to open it and couldn’t. Then she threw it on the floor, and she fell to the floor and started crying. I was like, “What is wrong with you?” ‘She said, “I need a new kidney. I don’t know what I’m going to do, the waitlist is seven to 10 years.” And it just came out of me, and I said, “I’ll get tested.” I called her assistant behind her back to get the information, and that’s how the process started.
Francia admits that the recovery from the transplant was difficult, and said she was in a lot of pain when she went to audition for the role of Ana in Grown-ish two weeks after the op – a role she won.  The two friends are now fully recovered and doing better.
