Serena Williams spoke to TODAY's Matt Lauer, explaining in detail her recent health state, her pulmonary embolism condition, from the moment she first got hospitalized on February 18. It was an emergency situation because of blood clots in her lungs (her symptoms were a swelling in her leg and breathing problems).
Serena later felt better and the following weekend she had an Oscar appearance, only to end up in hospital the very next day. She had to have a surgery for a grapefruit-size hematoma in her stomach.
Good news is that Serena's career will not be affected, as all the problems were addressed in time. Click on the image to watch the entire interview or click here.
