As you may recall, NeNe Leakes’ 2013 ended with a nasty blood clot scare and a trip to the hospital. Fortunately, the Real Housewives of Atlanta star is feeling much better now — and she’s doing her part to ensure that other women can spy the symptoms and respond with the appropriate level of urgency.
NeNe Leakes and Dr. Oz — now that’s a match-up you don’t see every day! But given her recent health issues, NeNe was thrilled to have the opportunity to chat with the famous television doctor. She began by describing the frightening experience, explaining, “I just had this pain. It got worse and worse, and finally I said, ‘I have to go to the emergency room.’”
After she arrived at the ER, NeNe learned that she was suffering from multiple blood clots and a partially collapsed lung. According to Dr. Oz, the reality star is lucky to be alive. He told her that death from pulmonary embolism remains unfortunately common and that NeNe was definitely smart to seek help at the emergency room. Although the recovery process took quite some time, things certainly could have been worse had NeNe decided not to pursue medical attention.
Following her appearance on Dr. Oz, NeNe Leakes took to Twitter to express her gratitude. “Love you @DrOz (AKA Smartie Pants)! Had so much fun on the show and learned so much.”
We’re glad that NeNe Leakes is feeling better! Do you think details of the blood clot scare and later recovery will wind up in a future episode of The Real Housewives of Atlanta? Leave a comment and let us know!
