Amy Schumer talked about how grateful she was for her endometriosis surgery and to get to be a mom during CBS News’ 60 Minutes.

The actress playing the role of the big sister in the new film The Humans was joined by her co-stars to talk about what Thanksgiving means to them and say what they are grateful for. 

“I am really grateful that I had the time to really check out my health and what’s going on,” Schumer said and talked about her endometriosis treatment. “It has made me a completely different mother and person. It’s a miracle I was able to have a baby with how bad my endometriosis was. I am so grateful that I get to be a mum.”

Schumer’s endometriosis surgery

Dr. Seckin and Dr. Hayama Brill treated Schumer at Seckin Endometriosis Center. Her surgery involved a hysterectomy and an appendectomy.

Laparoscopic excision surgery is the gold standard treatment for endometriosis and requires very high skill and expertise, which the surgeon at Seckin Endometriosis Center can offer.

Schumer became one of Dr. Seckin’s many patients whose life was changed thanks to her treatment.

In September 2021, Schumer had posted a video on Instagram taken by her husband Chris Fischer where she talked about her operation and thanked her surgeons Dr. Seckin and Dr. Brill while she was recovering in hospital. 

Schumer is now raising awareness about endometriosis, which affects one in 10 women of reproductive age.

About endometriosis

The exact cause of the disease is not clear but doctors think that a combination of genetic and environmental factors trigger its development. Symptoms include chronic pelvic pain, heavy bleeding and extreme pain during periods, pain during intercourse, and even infertility.
