Lena Dunham Released From Hospital Following Ruptured Ovarian Cyst
We are all glad to hear that actress Lena Dunham is back in good health after being rushed to a hospital two days ago. The Girls television star has been open about her battle with endometriosis, a disorder in which tissue that normally lines the uterus grows outside the uterus. Doctors only treat endometriosis with surgery as a last resort. Over the weekend she had to cancel press appearances to promote the fifth season of Girls due to a ruptured cyst on one of her ovaries. Dunham had to go under go surgery, which was a success. She was released from the hospital earlier today sending an Instagram message of a “good vibes bunny” with the caption “safely out of the hospital and recuperating.”
Back in February, Dunham wrote a letter of Facebook explaining her condition to fans.
“Hey Beloved Pals,
I just wanted to let you know that, while I am so excited for Girls to return on Feb 21, I won’t be out and about doing press for the new season. As many of you know I have endometriosis, a chronic condition that affects approximately 1 in 10 women’s reproductive health. I am currently going through a rough patch with the illness and my body (along with my amazing doctors) let me know, in no uncertain terms, that it’s time to rest. That’s a hard thing to do, but I’m trying, because all I want is to make season 6 of Girls the best one yet. I’m lucky enough to have support and backup from Jenni, Judd and the whole Girls gang. So many women with this disease literally don’t have the option of time off and I won’t take it for granted. Wishing you all health & happiness, in whatever form suits you.
We wish her a speedy recovery.
