Nene Leakes treated for blood clots in lungs

NeNe-Leakes Nene Leakes, who ended up in hospital on Monday, is fine and recovering at home.

The Glee actress posted a photo of herself in a hospital bed with intravenous drips in her arm on Twitter two days ago. She also wrote: “I have been very sick for the past couple of days… My arms are hurting wit (with) these Ivs. Blessed to be alive…”

She offered no details of her condition at the time but yesterday Nene opened up about her illness in a post on her website.

On Tuesday she wrote: “Late last week I wasn’t feeling well and was feeling a little short neneof breath. I know my body and I know when I should be concerned so I went to the hospital to get checked out. After some routine tests I was diagnosed with blood clots in my lung.

“I’m told this happened to me because of the constant travelling around the country that I do for my job. I’m thankful to be alive as the doctor advised me that most people don’t recognize the symptoms of blood clots and don’t go to the doctor and that’s when the big problems start happening.”
