Selena Gomez has opened up about her kidney transplant in 2017.
The 27-year-old Look At Her Now singer spoke with WSJ on her diagnosis of lupus and the shocking discovery that she required a kidney transplant.
She said, “The lupus was a huge thing that happened to me, then the kidney thing happened, and that was the scariest because, yeah, you could actually die. The moment I came out [from surgery] I remember starting to shake and my mom screaming and then being put back under.
That’s what makes you go, ‘You know what, I’m just happy to be alive.'” — she was in surgery for over 7-hours, due to complications, with kidney transplant surgery usually taking 2 hours.
In the upcoming magazine, out on Saturday, January 18, Gomez also talks about mental illness, saying, “I feel like I was supposed to go through everything I’ve gone through. I had low self-esteem, and that’s something I work on continuously. But I feel so empowered because I’ve gained so much knowledge about what was going on mentally. My highs were really high, and my lows would take me out for weeks at a time.
I found out I do suffer from mental health issues. And, honestly, that was such a relief. I realised there was a way to get help and to find people that you trust. I got on the right medication, and my life has been completely changed.”
Earlier last month, unCrazed told you how to get a date with the singer, but she has made it clear, right now she needs “time by myself,” — she told WSJ, “I love going to my room at the end of the day. Just me and my dog. I got the full granny panties situation, stretched out in my bed. I’ve been single for over two years now. I’m OK with that.”
