  • Amy Schumer said that she "finally" feels good after getting liposuction and endometriosis treatment.
  • Schumer said in September that she had surgery to remove her uterus and appendix.
  • The comedian also said in her Tuesday post that she underwent liposuction.

Amy Schumer said that she "finally" feels "good" following liposuction and treatment for endometriosis.

"It's been a journey," the comedian wrote in the caption of a Tuesday Instagram post about her health, accompanied by photos of her on a beach in a long-sleeve, one-piece black swimsuit. 

"Thanks for helping me get my strength back @seckinmd (endo) @jordanternermd (lipo)," Schumer wrote in the post. "Never thought i would do anything but talk to me after your uterus doesn't contract for 2.5 years and you turn 40."

Endometriosis, as Insider has previously reported, is a chronic disorder that affects approximately one out of every 10 women of reproductive age and can cause severe pain during menstruation and sex. It most commonly occurs when uterine-like tissue begins to grow outside of the uterus, leading to painful lesions.

In a September Instagram post, Schumer said that she underwent surgery to remove her uterus and appendix as treatment for endometriosis. After the surgery, she said in a follow-up Instagram post that all of her "lifelong pain" had been "explained" and "lifted out of [her] body," leaving her a "changed person."

The "Trainwreck" star has been candid about her health and medical procedures on Instagram in the past. In December, she opened up about having her cheek fillers removed, saying that she was "already full" and "looked like #malificent" with them in.

Dr. Jordan Terner, the plastic surgeon who performed Schumer's liposuction, said in an Instagram story post that he was "so proud" to have been a part of Schumer's "journey."

Schumer also shouted out others who had helped her in her post, saying in a post on her Instagram story that she now weights 170 pounds.  

"@paulvincent22 vickie Lee (acupuncture) my girl Nicole from the tox my friends and fam. Let's go!" she wrote in the Instagram caption.
