NeNe Leakes spoke with Dr. Oz on Jan. 27 about her blood clot scare that sent her to the hospital last month. Leakes is feeling much better now, and she’s doing her part to ensure that other women can detect symptoms early enough for treatment.

However, given her recent health issues, the Real Housewives of Atlanta star 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’,” NeNe said.

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.

There’s no word if NeNe’s condition will be in a future episode of The Real Housewives of Atlanta.
