Serena Williams Opens Up About Health Scare

Serena Williams is going through serious trauma!

She still has blood clots in her lung after suffering from a pulmonary embolism — which she called the “scariest moment in [her] life.”

Serena says it all started with swelling:

"I had a lot of swelling in my leg, which really is a telltale sign of an embolism, and I could not breathe. That's when they found several blood clots. They told me that they had to check me in immediately or else… it wasn't going to be a good result."

After being cooped up in her house for eight months Serena decided that she needed to get out, so she went to some Oscar parties.

"I had been through so much in the past eight months. Just really kind of low on energy, but I was like, 'I've got to do something, kind of just to get my spirits up.'"

We’re so relieved to hear that she’s finally getting through all of this! So scary!
