The kidney transplant from Selena Gomez did not only have physical consequences for her and donor Francia Raisa. The two have also had a hard time after the operations.


Raisa tells Thursday to magazine Self that she had already been warned by a social worker before the transplant for an emotionally difficult time.

“She said:” It will be difficult, the recipient will recover much faster than the donor, because she will get something she needs and you will lose something that you do not have to get rid of. “And it was also difficult,” says the donor. . Yet it was not only for herself. “Selena and I both went through a depression afterwards, which we did not expect.”

Meanwhile, Francia Raisa is wearing the scars she was holding on to the operation with pride. “Scars are part of your life story, it is the part of your story that makes you different and special.”
