Actress Katrina Kaif was admitted for a day at Breach Candy Hospital and was discharged after she underwent a surgical procedure due to low hemoglobin level.

Katrina who delivered a string of hits like 'New York', 'Ajab Prem ki Gajab Kahani' and 'De Dana Dan', in 2009 had suffered from jaundice a couple of weeks ago.

She was admitted for a day at Breach Candy Hospital and was discharged yesterday.

"Katrina has just been discharged from Breach Candy Hospital and is completely fine now. Because of her system's low hemoglobin level, she had to undergo a small surgical procedure," a statement issued by the actress's spokesperson said.

Katrina is resting at home after which she will take off for her annual Christmas break, the statement said.

Sources in the hospital said, Katrina underwent a minor surgery for endometriosis.

According to the US website Medilineplus, Endometriosis is a problem affecting a woman's uterus. It occurs when the kind of tissue that normally lines the uterus grows somewhere else. It can grow on the ovaries, behind the uterus or on the bowels or bladder. Rarely, it grows in other parts of the body.

The website says, this  "misplaced" tissue can cause pain, infertility and very heavy periods. The pain is usually in the abdomen, lower back or pelvic areas. Some women have no symptoms at all. Having trouble getting pregnant may be the first sign.

The cause of endometriosis is not known. Pain medicines and hormones often help. Severe cases may need surgery. There are also treatments to improve fertility in women with endometriosis, says the website.
