Amy Schumer is in recovery mode after undergoing surgery to address endometriosis.
The actress took to Instagram on Sunday to share a positive update with fans.
“I’m feeling stronger and thrilled about life,” began Schumer, who had both her uterus and appendix removed during the procedure.
The “Trainwreck” star continued, “I am already a changed person. I am busting with joy for the new energy I have to be with my son.”
Schumer also called for greater research into the painful condition, which affects millions of women around the world.
“Anyone wondering if this is connected to my difficult pregnancy and hyperemesis I say f**k yes,” she wrote. “I can’t answer medically because there is no research on this s**t because they only happen TO WOMEN and there is no time to study them because all resources need to be funnelled into researching ERECTILE DISFUNCTION. THERE IS BARELY ANY RESEARCH ON ENDOMETRIOSIS WHICH OVER 10 percent of women have. ALL FUNDING SEEMS TO GO TO DICKMEREGENCIES.”
Schumer shared more details about the surgery while posting from her hospital room on Sept. 18.
“So, it’s the morning after my surgery for endometriosis and my uterus is out,” she said in a video taken by husband Chris Fischer.
“The doctor found 30 spots of endometriosis that he removed,” she continued. “He removed my appendix because the endometriosis had attacked it,” she continued.
“There was a lot, a lot of blood in my uterus and I’m, you know, sore and I have some, like, gas pains.”
In the caption, she shared a warning for women, cautioning, “If you have really painful periods you may have #endometriosis.”
A number of celebs responded to her post, offering their support, including Debra Messing, Padma Lakshmi, Elle King, Carrie Ann Inaba and more.
