Selena Gomez has opened up about the kidney transplant she had during the summer. 

The singer who suffered from lupus, revealed the news of the transplant on her Instagram earlier this year. 

In a new interview with The Today Show, Selena revealed that the surgery whilst successful did have complications.

She explained that shortly after the surgery, she started hyperventilating and that one of her kidneys had flipped inside her body. 

This led to a six hour surgery when the standard kidney transplant is only two hours long. 

That surgery was a success with Gomez saying "as soon as I got the kidney transplant, my arthritis went away, my lupus there's about a three to five percent chance it will ever come back, my blood pressure is better, my energy, my life has been better."
