The “I Feel Pretty” actress, who has been open about her struggles with infertility, revealed she had her uterus and appendix removed as a result of endometriosis, a condition in which tissue typically found in the uterus starts to grow in other parts of the body, leading to uncomfortable long-term pelvic pain during and between periods.
“So, it’s the morning after my surgery for endometriosis and my uterus is out,” Schumer explained in an Instagram video Sunday from her hospital bed, filmed by her husband, Chris Fischer. “The doctor found 30 spots of endometriosis that he removed. He removed my appendix because the endometriosis had attacked it.”
She added, “There was a lot, a lot of blood in my uterus, and I’m, you know, sore and I have some, like, gas pains.”
