- In a recent photo posted to Instagram, Amy Schumer shared that she’s feeling good after having endometriosis surgery and getting liposuction.
- “It’s been a journey thanks for helping me get my strength back,” Schumer captioned the photo.
- The actress previously had a hysterectomy to combat endometriosis, a disease she has been dealing with for some time.
The star first opened up about her medical conditions in 2018, when she suffered from a horrible kidney infection that put her in the hospital for five days, causing her to miss the London opening of her film I Feel Pretty. Then in late 2020, Schumer revealed that she was battling Lyme disease, which may have gone undiagnosed for years.
Now, the comedian is offering up even more insight into her road to wellness. The star posted a photo to Instagram earlier this week, revealing that she underwent surgery for endometriosis and had liposuction. Though we think Schumer doesn’t need to change her body with the weight loss procedure, we’re glad she’s feeling great! In the beach-side swimsuit pic, Schumer wrote: “I feel good. Finally. It’s been a journey thanks for helping me get my strength back @seckinmd (endo) @jordanternermd (lipo).”
For all of the people that might question why she had the procedures, Schumer added: “[I] never thought I would do anything but talk to me after your uterus doesn’t contract for 2.5 years and you turn 40.”

This isn’t the first time Schumer has gone under the knife. The comedian announced in a September Instagram post that she had surgery to remove her appendix and uterus as a result of endometriosis. Endometriosis is a condition that affects 1 in 9 Australian women at some point in their life. It’s categorised by endometrial tissue (tissue that lines the uterus) that grows outside the uterus, often on other organs inside the pelvis or abdominal cavity. During the menstrual cycle, this tissue will break down just as regular endometrium does, but will leave bleeding inside the pelvis. This leads to inflammation, swelling, and scarring of the normal tissue.
Although endometriosis is quite common, it can take a toll on a person’s emotional health. That’s why we’re giving Schumer all the props for her positive outlook and willingness to share her journey. And we’re glad to see she’s finally feeling good after her various procedures.
She even gave a shout-out to her acupuncturist in the post, writing: “@paulvincent22 Vickie Lee (acupuncture) my girl Nicole from the tox my friends and fam, Let’s go!”
Through it all, Schumer doesn’t let her health conditions stop her from living life. While we hope her days of endometriosis pain are behind her, we’re wishing her all the best on her wellness journey and can’t wait to see what realness she shares with fans next.
