In response to actor Amy Schumer’s Instagram post revealing that she underwent a major surgery, a few Hollywood celebs rushed to wish the comedian a speedy recovery.
In a video from her hospital bed, the “Trainwreck” actor told fans she had surgery to remove her uterus and appendix due to endometriosis. “It’s the morning after my surgery for endometriosis and my uterus is out,” said Schumer in her hospital gown. “The doctor found 30 spots of endometriosis that he removed. He removed my appendix because the endometriosis had attacked it.” The actor added that “there was a lot, a lot of blood in my uterus and I’m, you know, sore,” before the video cut out. Schumer captioned the video: “If you have really painful periods, you may have #endometriosis.”
Actor Debra Messing entered Schumer’s comment section, writing how she was “so happy” the actor “won’t have that pain anymore,” and “Top Chef” star Padma Lakshmi commended the actor for sharing her story, adding, “Over 200 million women worldwide suffer with this. Hope you feel better soon!”
