NeNe Leakes stopped by Good Morning America where she opened up a bit about her health scare from earlier this year.

She told us what exactly went down before she took herself to the hospital:

I was at work. And I started feeling a pain under my right breast that kind of went around to my side and in my back. And then, the next morning, the pain was in those places and on my right shoulder. It was really different.

And I wasn’t sick as in a cold. I was feeling like — I didn’t feel like something was wrong. My husband, on the other hand, kept saying, you have gas. I’m like, really? This is not gas for a pain to be on my shoulder. I decided to go to the hospital. And once I was there, they tested me. They did a lot of bloodwork. And then, they did an x-ray. And then, a c. T. Scan. And they discovered the clots all over my right lung and some in my left lung. I felt it for two days. The second day I went to the hospital.

She says that they’re still doing some testing, but she’s doing much better:

They’re doing photo testing for me, to see if it’s genetic or not. Right now, I’m currently on blood thinners, which is helping my blood to be a lot thinner, so the blood clots can go away.

We’re glad to hear that NeNe’s on the road to recovery! Check out the clip below.
