Amy Schumer hospitalized for 'horrible' kidney infection

Amy Schumer is in recovery after a 5-day stint in the hospital dealing with a "horrible kidney infection."

The actress-comedian, who is in the middle of promotional events for her new film "I Feel Pretty", took to Instagram yesterday, April 28 to share "sexy as hell" photos of herself laid up in the hospital. 

She was accompanied by her sister Kim Caramele, her husband Chris Fischer and her sister-in-law/assistant Molly.



Here’s what I’ve been up to this week. I was hospitalized for 5 days with a horrible kidney infection. I want to give a big thank you to the doctors, the bad ass nurses also my husband who’s name is, i want to say, Chris? and my sisters Kimby and mol who have been by my side the whole time. I wanted to share this with you because this is sexy as hell but mostly because I was meant to go to London for the opening of I Feel Pretty and my doctors have told me that’s a no go. I’m really disappointed selfishly to miss this trip because I love London and Europe in general and all the great people (food) there. But I need to put my health first. I am so grateful for all the support the movie is getting. I hope people check it out in England and everywhere else in the world. It’s sweet and fun and you will walk out feeling better. Which is something I hope to feel soon too.

In the caption, Amy explained that her hospitalization will force her to miss "I Feel Pretty's" London premiere. "I need to put my health first," she pressed.

Get well soon, Amy!

"I Feel Pretty" tells a story of a regular woman who wakes up from a SoulCycle injury thinking she looks like a supermodel. It will hit Philippine theaters this May 2.
