The star was then given the option to try a stem cell transplant and an “aggressive” course of chemo to restart her immune system. However, Selma admitted she was worried about the risks.
“I had no intention of doing it, I was like, I’m not ruining my body, what’s left of it. Why would I put this horrible drug, chemotherapy, in me? I don’t have cancer,” she said. “But I was kind of out of options and I was looking.”
Selma was given a “microdose” of chemo, which immediately gave her some relief and prompted her decision to progress with a larger dose.
“I was warned,” she continued. “You kind of make your plans for death, [and] I told my son I was doing this and he said he wanted me cremated. I had more chemo than they usually do for cancer patients, because they almost kill you. And it’s the stem cell that allows you to live with that amount of chemo. The chemo is the MS cure, if it does in fact happen.”
While Selma is currently I recovery, she is cautious about her future.
“I haven’t talked about it much yet because I wanted to show everyone that the proof is in the pudding, but my pudding is still kind of scrambled. I don’t want to scare people away,” she said.
Selma first revealed she had been diagnosed with MS – a condition that attachs the central nervous system - back in October 2018.
In July of this year, the American star debuted her shaved head after revealing she was undergoing chemo.
“Today is a banner day,” Blair wrote alongside a photo where she is standing tall with her Alinker bike (a walk assist bike). "I am being discharged from the care of an incredible team of nurses and techs and a visionary Dr. who believes in my healing as much as I do. This has been a process. And will continue to be one.
I am immunocompromised for next three months at least. So no kisses please. I wanted to make sure all complications here were my private space. And we got through brilliantly.”
