Lena Dunham Undergoes Surgery to Remove Ovary, Reveals the 'Big Lesson' She Learned

Lena Dunham Undergoes Surgery to Remove Ovary, Reveals the 'Big Lesson' She Learned

Lena Dunham has revealed she underwent a two hour surgery on Tuesday (October 16) to remove her left ovary that was encased in scar tissue and fibrosis.

“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 shaped like a human,” Lena wrote on her Instagram account, along with a photo of her in a hospital bed.

Lena continued, “I spent 9 hours in the post op recovery area with v low blood pressure that nurses were diligently monitoring….A lot of people commented on my last post about being too sick to finish promoting my [new HBO] show [Camping] by saying they thought my hysterectomy would have fixed it (so did I). 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!)”

“But a big lesson I’ve learned in all this is that health, like most things, isn’t linear- things improve and things falter and you start living off only cranberry juice from a sippy cup/sleeping on a glorified heating pad but you’re also happier than you’ve been in years,” Lena wrote. “I feel blessed creatively and tickled by my new and improved bellybutton and so so so lucky to have health insurance as well as money for care that is off my plan. But I’m simultaneously shocked by what my body is and isn’t doing for me and 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 and what we need to be well. It’s humiliating.”

Lena then concluded, “My health not being a given has paid spiritual dividends I could never have predicted and it’s opened me up in wild ways and it’s given me a mission: to advocate for those of us who live at the cross section of physical and physic pain, to remind women that our stories don’t have to look one way, our pain is our gain and oh shit scars and mesh ‘panties’ are the fucking jam. Join me, won’t you?”

Keira Knightley Reveals Celebrities She Gets Mistaken For on 'Late Late Show'!

Keira Knightley Reveals Celebrities She Gets Mistaken For on 'Late Late Show'!

Keira Knightley made an appearance on Monday night’s (October 16) broadcast of The Late Late Show with James Corden alongside Kathryn Hahn and readily admitted that people often confuse her with other actresses.

The 33-year-old Colette star that she’s been approached by fans who mistakenly think she is Kate Winslet, Rachel Weisz or Natalie Portman.

Keira then name-dropped her least likely doppelgänger yet — Britney Spears. “Shut up,” James said.

“The other ones I get: English actress,” Knightley said. “[It was] in LA, and I was in a shop. I don’t know. It was a weird one. I had my picture as Britney Spears. I quite enjoy it, though. I’m much more polite, I think, when people think that I’m somebody else.

Kathryn said she also gets mistaken, but only for SNL‘s Ana Gasteyer.

Airplane Carrying Melania Trump Forced to Land After 'Mechanical Issue'

Airplane Carrying Melania Trump Forced to Land After 'Mechanical Issue'

An airplane carrying First Lady Melania Trump had to make a sudden return to Joint Base Andrews on Wednesday (October 17) just minutes after taking off due to “thin haze of smoke and the smell of something burning,” CNN reports.

Her rep, Stephanie Grisham, said the plane had a “minor mechanical issue. Everything is fine and everyone is safe.”

Reporters were traveling on the plane as well and wet towels were handed out on board if the smell became bothersome.

The First Lady was supposed to be headed to Thomas Jefferson University Hospital to make a speech in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, but the trip is being reevaluated at this time.
