LENA DUNHAM SHARES BRUTAL PHOTO AFTER SURGERY TO REMOVE OVARY

Camping creator Lena Dunham has never been one to shy away from graphic discussions about her personal health. After having a complete hysterectomy in February, Dunham took to Instagram Wednesday to share the news that she’d had an additional surgery to remove her left ovary.

Dunham posted a photo of herself following Tuesday’s surgery, and wrote a lengthy caption explaining the procedure and addressing the blowback some have given her over her ongoing health issues.

She wrote: "Yesterday I had a two hour surgery to remove my left ovary, which was encased in scar tissue & fibrosis, attached to my bowel and pressing on nerves that made it kinda hard to walk/pee/vamp. Over the last month it got worse and worse until I was simply a burrito posing as a human. A lot of people commented on my last post about being too sick to finish promoting my show by saying my hysterectomy should have fixed it (I mean *should* is a weird one). That I should get acupuncture and take supplements (I do). That I should see a therapist because it’s clearly psychological (year 25, y’all. These are the fruits!)."

She also got political, writing that she is "red with rage that access to medical care is a privilege and not a right in this country and that women have to work extra hard just to prove what we already know about our own bodies."
