SERENA WILLIAMS: The American professional tennis superstar, Serena Williams, has revealed her near-death experience after giving birth to her daughter, Olympia in September. This was contained in an article she wrote for CNN.
The former world’s number one said she got blood clot in her lungs, blocking one or more arteries.
“I almost died after giving birth to my daughter,” Williams wrote.
The 23-time Grand Slam champion Williams said she had to undergo emergency Cesarean section after her heart rate plummeted dramatically during contractions.
“But what followed just 24 hours after giving birth were six days of uncertainty.
“Because of my medical history with this problem I live in fear of this situation,” the American said.
Williams said that while recovering in the hospital, one day after the emergency CS, she felt short of breath and after some convincing on Williams’ part, the hospital staff finally sent for a CT scan and then put her on a life-saving drip.
She started coughing so much from the blood clots that her Cesarean wound popped open.
“I returned to surgery where the doctors found a large hematoma in my abdomen.
“Then I returned to the operating room for a procedure that prevents clots from travelling to my lungs.
“When I finally made it home to my family I had to spend six weeks of motherhood in bed.”
Williams praised the hospital staff saying “if it weren’t for their professional care, I wouldn’t be here today”.
She, however, did not reveal the name of the hospital in the CNN piece.
