Amy Schumer has revealed that she has had her uterus and appendix removed because of her endometriosis.

Endometriosis is a condition where tissue that normally grows in the uterus starts to grow outside the uterus, leading to pelvic pain.

Schumer updated her fans on how she has been doing on an Instagram video posted to her page on Sunday.

“So, it’s the morning after my surgery for endometriosis and my uterus is out,” she said. “The doctor found 30 spots of endometriosis that he removed. He removed my appendix because the endometriosis had attacked it.”

Schumer received comments from fans and other celebrities wishing her well.

“Thank you so much for sharing your endo story. Over 200 million women worldwide suffer with this. Hope you feel better soon!” Padma Lakshmi commented.

“Oh my goodness, 30?! So happy they are gone and you won’t have that pain anymore. Heal well Am!” Debra Messing wrote.

In January, Schumer revealed that she was undergoing IVF treatments, and asked her followers for advice.

“I’m a week into IVF and feeling really run down and emotional. If anyone went through it and if you have any advice or wouldn’t mind sharing your experience with me please do,” Schumer wrote. “My number is in my bio. We are freezing my eggs and figuring out what to do to give Gene a sibling.”
