Chrissy Teigen is offering fans a candid look at her recuperation process following endometriosis surgery.

The 35-year-old star took to her Instagram Story on Thursday, Feb. 4 to share footage of herself after undergoing a procedure for the disorder that is caused by uterine tissue growing outside of the uterus. 

She started by posting a video of herself in a hospital bed while wearing a surgical gown and appearing quite groggy. "Endometriosis surgery please endo this pain lol lol lol," she wrote. 

Later in the day, she shared footage of herself lying down at home in front of the TV and continuing to seem quite lethargic. "I'm OK, I'm home now," she said as she lightly touched her stomach, which had multiple bandages on it from the procedure. "All numbed up. Watching Larry David, Curb Your Enthusiasm." 

She then posted footage of herself opening a box of donuts and taking a big bite of what appeared to be a maple bar. "It's so good," Chrissy shared.

Chrissy added that her "whole belly's got numbed" and will remain that way for a couple more days. "It makes it hard, every little cough and stuff," she shared. "But it is truly still better than the contractions and the pain of endo." 

The day before, the Lip Sync Battle co-host had tweeted an update on her health battle following the pregnancy loss that she and husband John Legend suffered in September 2020.

"my little jack would have been born this week so I'm a bit off," she wrote on Feb. 3. "I truly feel kicks in my belly, but it's not phantom. I have surgery for endometriosis tomorrow...but the period feeling this month is exactly like baby kicks. sigh."
