Serena Williams health: Blood clots 'could have killed me' – tennis pro tells all


Share post:

Serena learned, later on, that she had blood clots in her lungs – “lots that, had they not been caught in time, could have killed me”.

Recalling the “excruciating pain” she felt, and the inability to move “at all”, Serena “began to cough” during the ordeal.

“The nurses warned me that coughing might burst my stitches, but I couldn’t help it,” she recalled.

“The coughs became racking, full-body ordeals. Every time I coughed, sharp pains shot through my wound.”
