Amy Schumer spent five days in the hospital this week being treated for a “horrible kidney infection,” the actress said in an Instagram post Friday morning.

In the post, Schumer said that the illness caused her to miss the opening of her new film “I Feel Pretty.”

Schumer also thanked her husband, Chris Fischer, and sisters for their support during her medical issue, as well as the hospital staff that treated her.

“Here’s what I’ve been up to this week. I was hospitalized for five days with a horrible kidney infection,” Schumer wrote. “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.”

Schumer continued, “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.”

The actress concluded, “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.”
