Lena Dunham Responds
Apr 13, 2016 — Lena Dunham responded to the negativity surrrounding her with this post on Facebook:
My friend (and amazing advocate for women with endometriosis) Padma Lakshmi alerted me to the fact that I upset some of my fellow endo sufferers when I posted a video on Lenny Letter of me getting a Lupron shot. In the video I say that three months of Lupron is equivalent to an excision surgery. I misspoke. While Lupron can be super helpful to some (and has been for me in my treatment) it is not right for everyone and is NOT the equivalent of a laparoscopic surgery. The last thing I ever want is to spread misinformation about this disease, and I'm learning more each day- unfortunately, endometriosis misinformation is rampant online and beyond and I was blithely quoting the Internet. I want to thank Padma for letting me know about the upset parties and my doctor Randy Harris for always making sure I'm armed with facts. Wishing everyone love and light in their personal journey with this illness. I'm feeling good.
