"The fact that she was a match is unbelievable", Gomez said.
However, one day it became too much when Selena couldn't physically open a water bottle. "She lived with me during this interesting time where 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". The list is seven to ten years long.' And it just vomited out of me.
"And finally, there aren't words to describe how I can possibly thank my attractive friend Francia Raisa. I felt okay, I felt really good", Gomez stated.
In an interview that aired Monday morning on the Today Show, the singer and her friend and kidney donor, actress Francia Raísa, sat down with Savannah Guthrie to elaborate. "My teeth - I was grinding - I was freaking out".
They underwent kidney transplant surgery over the summer (17), with Selena only going public with the news in September. Gomez's kidney apparently flipped inside her body, causing enormous pain and an additional surgery. "I'm very grateful that there are people who know what to do in that situation".
The recovery process was tough.
Though the surgeries were successful, the two pals had a long way to go in their recovery as they were only allowed to move around for an hour a day, and it was "hard" for them having to be so reliant on other people.

Her family was also uneasy about her decision to be a donor. And now that more details about Gomez's kidney transplant have come out, the situation and the process that led to the transplant sound even scarier.
"You feel she saved your life?"
Raisa agreed to donate her organ on the spot.
Last month, Selena Gomez shocked fans when she revealed she'd had a kidney transplant after complications from her lupus. "One of the most humbling experiences was needing help to like, put on underwear", Francia said.
"We couldn't take showers by ourselves", Raisa added".
Continuing the story, Francia shared, "My mum didn't wanna be there (in the hospital) until I woke up (after surgery)". "Usually, the process takes like six months, so it was really fast". "I guess I got to the point where it was really kind of life or death", she added.
"As soon as I got the kidney transplant, my arthritis went away".
