As you may recall, NeNe Leakes experienced quite the health scare a few weeks back. Fortunately, the Real Housewives Of Atlanta star is now healthy, happy and out of the hospital. She shared all the terrifying details from the ordeal on Live With Kelly And Michael, including the official cause of the blood clot emergency.
NeNe Leakes was a little bit late for her appearance on Live With Kelly And Michael. Make that several weeks late! But the reality star had a really good excuse for going MIA: she wound up in the hospital due to a very dangerous blood clot!
Although the issue had been some time in the making, NeNe first noticed that there was a problem on a seemingly ordinary evening. ”I started feeling a pain under my breast and in my back, and then it moved to my shoulder.” According to NeNe, hubby Gregg Leakes initially mistook the pain for a simple case of gas. NeNe’s response? “I do not have gas. Not in my shoulder and under my breast.”
The pain soon increased, convincing the reality star that a hospital visit might be worth her while. “I went to the emergency room, and I have pulmonary embolisms, which are blood clots on your lungs.” Apparently, this condition can be spurred by frequent plane trips, which, given NeNe’s lifestyle, is a bit of a necessity. But for now, the celeb is taking it easy, or at least, easy for NeNe Leakes! She still has a birthday celebration and plenty of holiday festivities in the works, although these might be a bit more low key than in years past.
We’re glad NeNe Leakes is okay! Were you surprised by her blood clot scare? Sound off in the comments section below!
