It is being reported that Sarah Hyland is 'doing really well,' after recently revealing she had a secret second kidney transplant after her first one failed.
Reportedly the 28-year-old Modern Family actress originally underwent a kidney transplant after her father donated part of his organ to her in 2012, but after her body began to reject the organ, she had a second operation in May 2017, when her younger brother Ian was found to be a match.
Sarah Hyland was recently trolled by fans who called her 'pregnant', the actress responded in a dignified manner by informing them that it was holiday weight.
It is being reported that two years on, Sarah says she's feeling much better and can now enjoy her life, including vacations to Mexico with her boyfriend of over a year, Bachelor in Paradise's Wells Adams.
'The good thing about being stable, health-wise, and having an amazing significant other is that now I'm able to travel more...The last time I took a vacation before this year I was 24. I just turned 28, so I've just been either working on my health or working nonstop, so it's really good to be able to do something like that now.'
Hyland's comments come after sources previously claimed she was 'doing great' as she focuses on learning to manage her physical and mental health, after she admitted that her battle with her body had left her 'contemplating suicide.'
A source said: 'She still has her hard days. [But] she's not healthy when it comes to her kidneys. She's doing well, and her levels are all good. But she is taking immunosuppressant drugs that make her very vulnerable to germs and disease so she has to be so cautious.'
Not only has all of this been physically demanding, but the emotional and mental demands have been just as challenging for the native New Yorker.
'She has a chronic illness and she will have to deal with it for the rest of her life. She's still working through it all.'
