Get Well: Robin Roberts Reveals She “Felt Like She Was Dying” Following Bone Marrow Transplant

- By Bossip Staff


It has been a tough fight for Robin Roberts getting back to healthy, but we had no idea that it got this bad.

Via People reports:

In an exclusive interview, Good Morning America’s Robin Roberts reveals for the first time that there was a point after her September bone marrow transplant, “where I felt like I was dying.”

It was a few days after Roberts, 52, underwent the transplant for a rare blood and bone marrow disorder called myelodysplastic syndrome. “I couldn’t eat or drink,” she says. “I couldn’t even get out of bed.”

Fading in and out of consciousness, Roberts recalls, “I was in a coma-like state. I truly felt I was slipping away … then I kept hearing my name.”

Five months later, Roberts, a breast cancer survivor, says she’s finally beginning to feel like her old self again: “It’s an amazing feeling, each day feeling stronger.”

She will return to GMA on Feb. 20 and will be featured on a special edition of 20/20, airing Feb. 22.

We are so glad she’s been feeling better and pray that she stays healthy!!! Congrats on returning to work Robin!
