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

Now, Gomez says her health has improved tremendously. The new kidney was turning around inside her body because one of the arteries had flipped.

"She lived with me during this interesting time when my kidneys were just done". She chucked it and started crying. That was the day I came home - when I found out and she did it. Selena credits her 29-year-old best friend for saving her life. She was scared about it all, but knew she wanted to do this for Gomez.

"Of course I'll get tested", Raisa had told Gomez.

Gomez believes she would have died had it not been for Raisa, who volunteered to give one of her kidneys up when Selena's went into failure in May.

Raisa recalled she "did everything in, like, a day", even though the process usually takes six months, because her and Selena's situation was an "emergency situation". Her illness had progressed "to the point where it was really life or death", and she believes her friend saved her life. Gomez also couldn't imagine asking her friends and family to make such a sacrifice.

The two pals recently sat down for a candid interview with US breakfast show Today, which aired on Monday (30Oct17), and during the chat, Francia revealed her mother wasn't completely on board with her decision to go through such serious surgery. And I said, 'What's wrong?' and that's when she told me.

"My teeth were like grinding, I was freaking out", Gomez explained.

The friends also detailed their lengthy recovery process, which left the two with little to do but sit or lay around as their bodies healed from the surgery. "I knew she hadn't been feeling well", the actress said.

"You're on bed rest, you're allowed to walk an hour a day", Gomez said". She added, "I am very thankful that there are people that know what to do in that situation".

Now, just a few months later, Gomez and Raisa are opening up about the experience in their first TV interview since the procedure. "When you told your mum, she was like, 'What are you doing?'"

"We couldn't take showers by ourselves", Raisa added".

Selena revealed in 2015 she has been suffering from the complications of Lupus, an illness that attacks your healthy tissue and your organs. "It was a really brutal process", Raisa said. My lupus -there's about a 3-5 percent chance it'll ever come back.

"As soon as I got the kidney transplant, my arthritis went away".
