Oprah's Recent Health Scare Landed Her in the ER: "I Thought I Had a Cold"

Oprah is back to living her best life after a recent health scare.

During an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Oprah revealed a "very serious" case of pneumonia got her thinking about wellness differently.

"So, here it is. I came back from overseas and I thought I had a cold—but it wasn't a cold. I ended up in the emergency room and they said, 'You have pneumonia.' And I go home, and pneumonia is nothing to play with, y'all. It is very serious. And I was on antibiotics for a week and the antibiotics weren't working. And then I go back for another CT scan and they go, 'It's actually worse. You should see a lung specialist,'" she told DeGeneres.
