"The fact that she was a match, I mean, that's unbelievable", Gomez said. She gave me the ultimate gift and sacrifice by donating her kidney to me.

In the first preview the Today show aired, Selena was crying while talking about her life-saving kidney transplant. 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. The list is seven to 10 years long, ' and it just vomited out of me.

Fortunately for the 25-year-old singer was able to find a willing donor in her best friend Francia Raisa, after doctors found that she was the ideal match. In Gomez's case, she had Raisa to serve as her live donor, which Dr. Montgomery said is a "great advantage" because "live donor transplants last twice as long, on average, as deceased donor kidneys".

Selena Gomez had to go back under the knife after her kidney transplant when the new organ "flipped" inside her body. "In the middle of that process, I started hyperventilating, and my teeth were grinding".

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 Grown-ish actress said.

"You're on bed rest, you're allowed to walk an hour a day", Gomez said".

Gomez explained in a joint interview on Today: "I wanted us to feel good".

The limitations were particularly tough for Francia to get used to when it came to bathing and changing.

Raisa, who was living with Gomez at the time, found out about the state of Selena's health when she was too weak to open a water bottle. Raisa's surgery was first and when the removal of the kidney was successful, it was Gomez's turn.

Raisa agreed to donate her organ on the spot.

Continuing the story, Francia shared, "My mum didn't wanna be there (in the hospital) until I woke up (after surgery)". "I think one of the most humbling experiences was needing help to, like, put on underwear".

"My kidneys were just done", the 25-year-old sais on U.S. breakfast programme The Today Show host on Monday.

"She saved my life. It was a really brutal process". Her lupus has only a 3% to 5% chance of coming back, she said. "I guess I got to the point where it was really kind of life or death", she added. I don't think what we went through is easy. My blood pressure is better.
