Endometriosis is when cells from lining of your uterus (the endometrium) grow outside of it too, attaching to other parts of the body.

The reality star has been praised for sharing every aspect of her endometriosis journey with fans in recent weeks, including her pain after surgery.

"I'm OK, I'm home now," she said, touching her bandaged stomach. "All numbed up. Watching Larry David, Curb Your Enthusiasm."

In another clip she told fans: "My whole belly's got numbed, it's kind of like numb for a couple of days.

"Hopefully it will stay that way. It makes it hard, every little cough and stuff, but it is truly still better than the contractions and the pain of endo."

She concluded by making a joke about the healing journey she was yet to go through, winking at the camera and telling fans: "I don't feel great, but tomorrow's gonna be worse, so... yeah".

While Chrissy hasn't divulged exactly what was being treated during her endometriosis surgery, there are many reasons a woman with the condition might need to go under the knife.

One is 'endometriomas,' which are ovarian cysts caused by the condition, while other reasons for surgery include the removal of severe endometriosis - especially if it is impacting other organs - and evaluation of fertility.
