Amy Schumer revealed she had her uterus and appendix removed because of the toll endometriosis has taken on her body.
The “I Feel Pretty” star shared a video filmed by her husband, Chris Fischer, on Saturday that showed her recovering in a hospital bed while detailing her surgery.
“So, it’s the morning after my surgery for endometriosis and my uterus is out,” she told the camera. “The doctor found 30 spots of endometriosis that he removed. He removed my appendix because the endometriosis had attacked it.
“There was a lot, a lot of blood in my uterus and I’m, you know, sore and I have some, like, gas pains,” Schumer added.
Schumer, 40, also shared a mirror selfie of herself in her hospital gown.
“If you have really painful periods you may have #endometriosis,” she captioned the post.
The former “Inside Amy Schumer” star also posted the selfie on her Instagram Story to thank her doctors.
“Peace out endometriosis! Thanks Dr. Seckin and Dr. Brill,” she wrote over the photo.
Schumer’s friends, including model Olivia Culpo who also has dealt with endometriosis complications, took to the comments to share their support.
Culpo commented with three heart emojis.
“Thank you so much for sharing your endo story. Over 200 million women worldwide suffer with this. Hope you feel better soon! @endofound,” wrote Padma Lakshmi, who founded the Endometriosis Foundation of America.
“Oh my goodness, 30?! So happy they are gone and you won’t have that pain anymore. Heal well Am!” Debra Messing wrote.
The “Trainwreck” star has been candid about how her endometriosis has affected her fertility. In August 2020, Schumer decided she couldn’t “be pregnant ever again” after welcoming now-2-year-old son Gene.
“We did IVF and IVF was really tough on me,” she said. “I don’t think I could ever do IVF again.
“I decided that I can’t be pregnant ever again,” she continued. “We thought about a surrogate, but I think we’re going to hold off for right now.”
