Lena Dunham recovering after emergency surgery

Lena Dunham has had a very eventful week, even by celebrity standards. Last week, she was caught up in a photoshopping misunderstanding, then she was hospitalised over the weekend after suffering from a ruptured ovarian cyst - which must have been incredibly painful.

Dunham, who suffers from endometriosis, was admitted to hospital whereupon her rep Cindi Berger released this statement via ET: "Lena Dunham has been very public with her personal bouts with endometriosis. This morning she suffered from an ovarian cyst rupture and has been taken to the hospital. Lena will be undergoing surgery at an undisclosed hospital. We thank you for your understanding and hope that Lena's privacy will be respected."

Lena has had to cancel a recent press tour for Girls due to her chronic endometriosis. She has since posted the below to her Instagram, with the following message: "Thank you so much for the love. I'm safely out of the hospital and recuperating. Your well wishes mean the world. I can't wait to be up and active, and to show my thanks. always your girl, Lena."


Get well soon, Lena.
