Lena Dunham has full hysterectomy

Lena Dunham has full hysterectomy

Dunham's total hysterectomy will only be a cure if none is found elsewhere in her abdomen or bowel. Requiring a two-week hospital stay, numerous preoperative measures, and almost as many psychological evaluations to ensure she understands the implications of the irreversible decision, it's a victory of sorts-but not one without cost.

Dunham, who recently split from boyfriend Jack Antonoff after five years together, can no longer carry a child, but she is now keen to explore her options for motherhood.

Lena Dunham underwent a major surgery to relieve herself of pain. And while it is hard to know exactly how many of those cases are due to endometriosis, a 2011 study found the number of women with endometriosis in the USA could well exceed previous estimates of 5 million.

Worldwide, about 176 million women suffer from endometriosis, according to the Endometriosis Foundation.

CNN reported Dunham's essay is titled "The Painful Truth". "My uterus is worse than anyone could have imagined", she wrote.

After the procedure, Lena learned just how badly she needed the procedure. Afterward, Lena declared she was endometriosis-free. If women are referred to a gynaecologist and diagnosed, they may still not get specialist treatment for a condition which is still not well understood. The most reliable way of diagnosing endometriosis is to see the womb lining sitting outside of the womb within the pelvis, which can be achieved through keyhole surgery. The pain and frustration were too much to bear. The condition results in chronic inflammation and pain.

"Symptoms of endometriosis can be quite vague", says Dr Rodgers.

During her hysterectomy, Dunham wrote, surgeons discovered more medical problems. Last April, she said she was "endometriosis-free" after undergoing surgery to move her ovaries away from her rectal wall. Doctors do not always recognise it, assuming it is period pain. Action in any form can help.

"In addition to endometrial disease, an odd hump-like protrusion and a septum running down the middle, I have retrograde bleeding, a.k.a.my period running in reverse so that my stomach is full of blood", Dunham wrote of her added struggles at the time.

According to Dunham's endometriosis specialist, NY gynecological surgeon Dr.

PARTIAL HYSTERECTOMY: Removes two-thirds of the uterus. So many women with this disease literally don't have the option of time off and I won't take it for granted.
