Amy Schumer Hospitalized for Kidney Infection

Five-day hospitalization forces Schumer to cancel her U.K. press tour for "I Feel Pretty."

Amy Schumer took to Instagram on Friday morning (April 27) to give fans a health update after having a five-day stint in the hospital due to a kidney infection.

"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," she wrote in the caption. "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."

Schumer's newest movie, I Feel Pretty, opened last week in the U.S. and hits U.K. theaters on May 4.

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.
