This sounds so difficult!
Selena Gomez‘s BFF Francia Raisa went through hell during a recovery process that saw her slowly nurse back to health after giving up a kidney to Selena last year.
The Grown-ish actress revealed how her recovery process really went down during an interview with Harry Connick Jr., for an upcoming appearance on his daytime talk show Harry, according to media reports that gained access to the interview beforehand.
In the interview, Raisa revealed that she basically didn’t move for two straight months after the operation, saying (below):
“I couldn’t do anything active. All I could do was walk. That was very hard for me, and I have a dog. Every day the thing I look forward to is drinking my coffee, and walking, and I couldn’t do that. It was really, really hard.”
Of course, the end result is something great: Selena is healthy, Francia has recovered from the surgery, and all’s well that ends well, perhaps.
But that’s a long few months of recovery immediately after the operation, and definitely a difficult thing for both girls to go through at the time — and live through again, looking back now.
