Lena Dunham undergoes a hysterectomy

Por mayli2017

The uterus or womb is the place where the baby develops when a woman is pregnant. There are different types of uterine cancer. The most common begins in the endometrium, the membrane that lines the uterus. This cancer is also called endometrial cancer.Uterine cancer usually occurs after menopause. It is more common in women who are obese. You may also be at higher risk if you received hormone replacement therapy with estrogen alone (hormone therapy for menopause) for many years.Tests to find uterine cancer include a pelvic exam, imaging tests, and a biopsy. The most common treatment is a hysterectomy, which is surgery to remove the uterus. Sometimes the surgery also removes the ovaries and fallopian tubes. Other treatments include hormone therapy, radiation therapy and chemotherapy. Some women receive more than one treatment.

American actress Lena Dunham announced this week that she had undergone a complete hysterectomy after several years of suffering from endometriosis. The decision, which led to the total removal of her uterus, was explained by the actress in a long essay in Vogue. Dunham, who created the popular series Girls, in which he also acted, said he has been battling endometriosis for a decade and this was the ninth surgery he underwent at that time.

The 31-year-old actress said that despite the operation she underwent, she hopes to become a mother someday. You may have felt that you had no alternatives before the operation, but now you are sure you have options. Soon he will begin to explore if his ovaries, which remain somewhere inside his body, in the vast cavern of scarred organs and tissues, have an ovule, he explained in statements to the press. Adoption, on the other hand, is an exciting certainty that he will pursue with all his might.

Dunham's revelation also included the confession that after the surgery a "grieving" process had begun on the fact that she could never again become pregnant. Endometriosis is the condition in which the tissues that delineate the uterus begin to grow out of it. This causes severe pain and other complications, which in some cases become extreme.Dunham also said the surgery revealed that her uterus was worse than she imagined. The actress indicated that in addition to endometriosis, suffered from retrograde bleeding. Her period ran backward than normal, soher stomach was full of blood.

She did not even want to talk about the formation of his uterus, the only nice detail is that this organ, which is supposed to have the shape of a light bulb, has the shape of a heart. Well, now ... what is a hysterectomy? According to the National Health Service of the United Kingdom, a hysterectomy is a surgical procedure to remove the uterus and is necessary when it helps treat conditions that affect a woman's reproductive system. The intervention consists in the removal of the uterus and in some cases also of the ovaries, but the personal situation of each patient depends.

In the case of the Dunham, she was admitted to the hospital at least three times during the course of a year due to her endometriosis and last April she underwent surgery on her ovaries.Although it was recovered, he returned to the hospital a month later, when he was attending the gala of the Metropolitan Museum of New York.Shortly after he had to cancel his comedy tour. At the time he explained his decision was due to a "huge pain that I had never felt before".
