Lena Dunham has cancelled her Lenny Tour speaking engagement due to pain following a surgery for her endometriosis. Lena posted a statement on her website explaining that she is “in the greatest amount of physical pain that I have ever experienced.
“After being told I was endometriosis-free after my last procedure, more disease was found in deeper spots that required immediate surgery and now physical therapy. This disease is wily and unrelenting, and I’m really blessed to have a community, both online and IRL, who let me express how hard that is.”
Lena was hospitalized shortly after appearing at the Met Gala. She went on to explain that the tickets would be refunded and that the tour would be rescheduled once “my uterus has taken a chill pill.”
“My body, which I’ve worked through all kinds of pain for many years, just doesn’t have what it takes to do this tour. Lenny is about giving 100 percent of ourselves, 100 percent of the time, and I couldn’t bear to limp through this.”
