My Intestines Got Sucked Out In A Swimming Pool | TRULY

Salma: I’m basically in pain 24/7. Salma: I had an accident happen at a swimming pool. Salma: It was so traumatic. Salma: My mom actually thought it was
like my bathing suit or something. Salma: There was a doctor there and
he’s like, “Those are intestines.” Salma: It was horrible. Salma: Yeah Ray and Jay – Ray and Jay are coming. Mother: She will stay here? Salma: Not a sleepover, no. Mother: Just short visit today? Salma: Yeah, we are going to see each other and stuff. Mother: Okay. Salma: My name is Salma and I am 16 years old. Salma: I live in Pittsburgh. Salma: With my mom and my two brothers. Mother: Salma, she’s amazing girl in the whole world. Mother: Salma, she’s a fighter. She is a miracle. Salma: Yeah, having it for 10 years. Salma: All the nutrition I get is my TPN, so I don’t technically need to eat. Salma: TPN is Total Parental Nutrition. Salma: It is a bag full of fluids. Salma: It has all the nutrition you
need to survive basically. Salma: But yet somehow, I get the
sensation that I’m hungry. Salma: Maybe it’s a brain thing, maybe
it’s a mind thing, I have no idea. Salma: So I still get the taste of the food. Salma: Honestly, I don’t even remember
what it’s like to swallow the food. Salma: I mean it would be awesome
to, you know, swallow the food again. Salma: I can’t really do much
whenever I’m hooked up. Salma: Because I have to carry
it around in a backpack. Salma: Especially when it’s first
hooked up, it’s so heavy. Salma: I need to stay hooked up to
the TPN for 20 hours a day. Mother: When she was five years old, she had a tragic accident. Mother: It was vacation. Mother: We have an apartment in Alexandria and Egypt. Mother: That day, she went to the swimming pool. Mother: I asked her to please stay in front of me. Mother: Please, she is like “No, no,
no mom it’s for kids.” Mother: “It’s very little for babies.
I’m going. I’m going”. Mother: She went one time and she came back. Mother: She went another time. Mother: The third time she went and she didn’t come back. Salma: You know, if you actually
let me go somewhere. Salma: Which you probably will never let me go anywhere. Mother: That’s Salma. Salma: Controlling mother. Salma: There was a suction in it. Salma: It was actually pulling. Salma: So I was just swimming and all of a sudden, like I just sat on it by accident. Salma: I know the lifeguard tried to pull me out and he couldn’t, because the suction was so much. Salma: I could see what was going
on but I couldn’t even breathe. Salma: I could remember the pain.
I remember everybody panicking. Salma: Everybody getting out of the pool. Salma: I know a couple people finally
were able to get me out. Mother: I stand up and ran to her. Mother: I found someone carrying her and all her, like intestines, came out from her body. Mother: I couldn’t believe this is intestines. Mother: I thought at the beginning, I
thought it’s hair swimming through. Mother: Literally like my whole
stomach was just – it was horrible. Mother: But the good thing is it was so bad that I
basically blacked out after a little while. Salma: I think I was in the
hospital for maybe like two months. Salma: That was back in Egypt. Salma: Okay I’m in, I’m in. Salma: It is so cold. Salma: They said that I have
about two weeks to live, if I don’t get this transplant. Salma: And they told us that Pittsburgh
is the best place to go. Mother: Egypt – we don’t have
any treatment for Salma right now. Mother: We don’t – even her TPN, we don’t have it in Egypt. Mother: We have to come to America.
To do a transplant. Salma: Since we’re not citizens,
we can’t have insurance. Salma: And we were on the transplant
waiting list for 18 months. Salma: And then I did receive my
small intestinal transplant. Salma: After two weeks of me receiving my
transplant, I had my first rejection. Salma: After another month or so, another one. I had
a total of about five or six rejections. Salma: And it was so bad that they opened me up to remove that one organ which was only small intestines. Salma: And they found out that
the rejection had spread. Salma: So they actually had to remove my small
intestines which I got transplanted. Salma: And my large intestines. Salma: My bladder was ruptured in the process. Salma: And yeah, whenever they took everything
out since the infection was so bad, they unfortunately could not close me back up. Salma: So it’s healing slowly. Salma: But, now it’s literally – it’s
not healing any more. Salma: They removed my transplant, they said that we couldn’t have another one. Last time was just one organ. Salma: This is five organs. Salma: They also – money,
need money for admissions. Salma: Money for complications, for home care, pre-op evaluation. Salma: They need the money for everything. Mother: Here, everything is like cost. Mother: Everything’s cost. Mother: Every admission, every visit,
every clinic, every labs. Mother: Only, her lab is like a thousand
dollars every week. Mother: She still smiles. Mother: She is still a fighter. Mother: She’s still challenged with her
situation. She’s doing very, very good things for her. Salma: My two friends – their
names are JC and Reagan. Salma: Basically we met at transplant camp. Salma: Honestly, since camp we
have not stopped talking. Salma: We just understand each other so much because, JC actually had a small intestine transplant and it failed. Salma: And then she got a multi-visceral transplant
which is the same thing I need right now. Salma: Hey. Salma: Hey Zeda. Salma: Hi guys. Salma: Dude, we always have
300 people watching you. Girl: 90 Salma: I build my viewers up and I work for it. Mother: This is the dream to
give her – like give her another chance. Mother: Like her friend and she’s good now. Mother: And when she saw her, she gets hope. Mother: She says I wish, Mother: I wish I can get another one
and I live like normal. Mother: I said, just make pray. We keep praying. Mother: It’s impossible. Salma: But, we shall be
back after I’m done filming. Salma: So I love you guys. Peace out. Ray and Jay : Bye. Salma: Bye. Mother: Makeup artist. Mother: She’s good. She’s good. Mother: She’s good, but she’s mad at me,
because I refused to do makeup. Mother: She want to do my makeup. I said
no, I don’t like makeup. Salma: I love doing my
eyes, like eye shadow. Salma: I barely do neutral looks. I always do
crazy bold colors, which I love that. Salma: I have a makeup page that I do lives on. And I just like to go and do my makeup for fun. Salma: That’s what I love to do for fun. Mother: I’m trying to help her. I’m trying to do anything to make her stay alive and feel she’s a normal person. Mother: I wish I can do her dream and make her wish to do another transplant.
