Selena Gomez remarked that she feels more confident about her health journey as she showed a scar which was a result of her kidney transplant back in 2017 on social media.

The American pop star became candid about what she went through on Instagram on Friday, September 25 (PH time).

She posted, "When I got my kidney transplant, I remember it being very difficult at first showing my scar. I didn’t want it to be in photos, so I wore things that would cover it up." 


 

 

Selena remarked that she has fully embraced her journey and is proud of who she is today. 

"Now, more than ever, I feel confident in who I am and what I went through...and I’m proud of that," she said.

 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

I’m very aware some of my fans had noticed I was laying low for part of the summer and questioning why I wasn’t promoting my new music, which I was extremely proud of. So I found out I needed to get a kidney transplant due to my Lupus and was recovering. It was what I needed to do for my overall health. I honestly look forward to sharing with you, soon my journey through these past several months as I have always wanted to do with you. Until then I want to publicly thank my family and incredible team of doctors for everything they have done for me prior to and post-surgery. And finally, there aren’t words to describe how I can possibly thank my beautiful friend Francia Raisa. She gave me the ultimate gift and sacrifice by donating her kidney to me. I am incredibly blessed. I love you so much sis. Lupus continues to be very misunderstood but progress is being made.
