Los Angeles, May 05: Actress Lena Dunham is in recovery after being rushed to the hospital with a complication from her endometriosis surgery in April. 
The “Girls” creator was forced to make a quick exit from the Met Gala in New York City on Monday after suffering the medical complications that came with her long-term battle with the disease, in which body tissue found inside the uterus grows outside it, reported People magazine.
Dunham, 30, took to Instagram to share a photograph from her hospital bed and she thanked fans for their love and concern. 
“Although I’m much healthier than I was a year ago, complications arose from my most recent endometriosis surgery. When the healthcare of so many American women, especially our trans sisters, is at-risk- or already nonexistent- I am lucky to be in the position to seek help when I’m in pain. 
“To those in that privileged spot- never forget that we are blessed and can pay it forward by supporting Planned Parenthood and LGBTQ clinics like Callen-Lorde with our money and time. 
“I also want to remind all the women suffering from chronic illness that we aren’t weak- quite the opposite, actually. We do our jobs with skill even when we’re struggling. We care families even when we can hardly care for ourselves. We serve major face on a red carpet when we feel like lying face down would be more appropriate. PTI
