Not much has been seen of the actor since she donated her kidney, but she has recently posted an image of herself back in the gym on her social media.

Francia Raisa, Selena Gomez's best friend who donated a kidney to the singer, is hitting the gym again after the kidney transplant.

Sebuah kiriman dibagikan oleh Francia RaĆ­sa (@franciaraisa) pada Sep 21, 2017 pada 11:46 PDT Selena revealed earlier this month that she underwent a secret surgery to receive a kidney transplant from her friend Francia over the summer.

A National Kidney Foundation spokeswoman called the reveal "huge" for the 123,000 Americans now on the waiting list for a lifesaving organ transplant, 101,000 of whom need a kidney. She thanked her friend Francia, "And finally, there aren't words to describe how I can possibly thank my lovely friend Francia Raisa".

"Happy to be back", wrote Raisa.

The Hands to Myself artist included a shot of herself and Raisa holding hands in adjacent hospital beds amid the surgery to combat Selena's battle with Lupus, which she first publicly spoke of in 2015. I am incredibly blessed. In the post, Raisa is seen wearing only a sports bra and workout trousers, which reveals her midriff and her post-op scars.

Raisa and Gomez became friends in 2008 when they met at a charity event sponsored by Disney and its network, ABC. She also showed her scar from the kidney transplant. I'm very proud of both of them.

Lupus is a disease that causes a person's immune system to attack his or her organs and body tissue. "She says I'm her mom", Almendarez told the Spanish-language broadcaster of her daughter and Gomez.
