Washington D.C. [USA], April 05 : TV star Lena Dunham is 'Disease Free!' But, she is not exactly happy about it.

After struggling for years with endometriosis, the 30 year-old-actress revealed that she is finally heading towards a healthier life, reports E! Online.

In this week's edition of her ' Lenny Letter', the ' Girls' star wrote, "My [final] surgery went off without a hitch. When I emerged, cotton-mouthed, [Dr. Randy Harris] told me something I hadn't expected to hear, maybe ever: there was no endometriosis left. Between my surgeries and hormonal intervention, I was disease-free."

Adding, "That doesn't mean it can never return, but for now, once my sutures have been removed and my bruises have changed from blue to yellow to green to gone, I will be healthy. All that will remain is my long-term relationship with pain, and it's time to get real about that."
