Katie Prices mum admits had a few set backs in heartbreaking health update

Amy Price admits that she ‘cancelled’ Katie’s boob job operations

Kate Price’s terminally ill mum Amy has issued a heartbreaking health update after undergoing a lung transplant in 2022.

In 2017, Amy was diagnosed with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis [IPF], an incurable lung disease with a life expectancy of three to five years.

Last year, the 71-year-old underwent the crucial surgery but has admitted things are still “up and down” and explained she’s had some “setbacks.”

Amy said: “I’m not too bad. I’m a bit up and down because the weather has an impact on my breathing, it literally takes my breath away so when I go out at the moment I’m wearing a face mask because it’s easier for me to breathe with that than just trying to go along.”

Speaking to the Daily Star, she added: “It’s a slow process and it’s taken a while. I’ve had quite a few setbacks but that’s to be expected but I’m in the right direction.”

Amy also explained how it would be so easy to “sit” because of the breathlessness but it’s so important she exercises.

“I had a single lung transplant but it would cease up so I’ve got to exercise to get it working”, she stated.

Amy underwent the lung transplant without her two daughters Katie, and Sophie, and her son Dan knowing, and once admitted that she believed she briefly died on the operating table after going into cardiac arrest.

Speaking on the Katie Price Show podcast, Amy said: “The next day I went into cardiac arrest and they had to pump me to bring me back.”

Daughter Katie then asked: “How many times did you die, Mum?”

“Only the once,” Amy explained before going on to say she has no recollection of the traumatic experience but was apparently shouting: “I can’t breathe, I can’t breathe.”

She continued: “That’s because I was filling up with blood and fluid. I was dreaming, thinking ‘I’ve got to survive until 5 O’Clock, I’m hot, I’m sweaty, I can’t breathe.”

Amy then explained: “I thought, ‘You know if I go … Sophie’s alright, Kate will sort herself out, Dan’s alright… it’s okay to go’,” she recalled before adding: “I felt everything was falling in place and I could just go.”

Amy has been receiving medical care since her diagnosis in 2017 ever since with Katie explaining in 2021: “My mum’s pretty strong, she’s accepted it but she’s not one of these people who will dwell on it, even though I know it’s on your mind”, reports The Mirror.

While Amy said: “I haven’t given up yet. I’ve got to accept the fact that I know I’m going to deteriorate.”
