Amy Schumer was hospitalized for five days following a serious kidney infection, reports People. The I Feel Pretty star shared a series of Instagram photos of herself in a hospital bed looking, understandably, in discomfort and distress.
In the photos, Chris Fischer, her husband of two months, stands over her bedside and holds her hand. She also posted photos of Fischer and of her sister Kim Caramele sitting in the hospital room.
The hospitalization forced Schumer to cancel a planned London premiere and press tour in Europe for her new film. "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."

We're glad that Schumer is listening to her doctor's orders. We've dealt with kidney infections, and are really feeling for her right now. Typically, kidney infections begin as urinary tract infections, but can arise on their own. Either way, the pain is pretty unbearable, and we didn't even need to visit the emergency room. We can't imagine how awful Schumer must be feeling right now. Here's hoping she turns it into hilarious comedic material. After she's healed up, of course!
