Lena Dun­ham (above) has can­celled her Lenny IRL Tour, due to the wors­en­ing of en­dometrio­sis. Dun­ham was sched­uled to head­line dis­cus­sions with fans in sev­eral cities start­ing at the end of the month.

The Girls cre­ator wrote on her Lenny Let­ter web­site, that while her “trav­el­ling va­ri­ety show” has been a “ray of sun­shine” for her amid “these dark po­lit­i­cal days,” her en­dometrio­sis has wors­ened and her body can­not bear the stress of tour­ing. “...To be per­fectly hon­est, I’m in the great­est amount of phys­i­cal pain that I have ever ex­pe­ri­enced. Af­ter be­ing told I was en­dometrio­sis-free af­ter my last pro­ce­dure, more dis­ease was found in deeper spots that re­quired im­me­di­ate surgery and now phys­i­cal ther­apy,” she in­formed her fans about her con­di­tion.

Dun­ham had said in April she had un­der­gone her fifth pro­ce­dure for the dis­or­der, a fe­male re­pro­duc­tive dis­ease in which ab­nor­mal tis­sue grows out­side the uterus, which can cause in­fer­til­ity. Ear­lier this month, Dun­ham had to leave the 2017 Met Ball early and was hos­pi­talised for com­pli­ca­tions from her most re­cent surgery.

“This dis­ease is wily and un­re­lent­ing, and I’m re­ally blessed to have a com­mu­nity, both on­line and IRL, who let me ex­press how hard that is,” Dun­ham wrote. The 31-yearold star said peo­ple who pur­chased tick­ets would be refunded. “We hope to be back when my uterus has taken a chill pill. (But not my spir­i­tual uterus. She’ll never chill. She’s in­ca­pable of chill.),” she said.
