Actor Sean Hayes has secretly been in recovery after his small intestine burst.
The Will & Grace star went public with his recent hospitalization during an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, which aired on Wednesday (25Oct17), revealing he had to pull out of his previously scheduled interview earlier this month (Oct17) because of the medical emergency.
“I went to bed at night and all of a sudden I felt this excruciating pain in my stomach,” he said. “So I went to the ER (emergency room)… and thank God I did. I had a very rare thing where my small intestine burst open, and it was poisoning my body.”
“So they went in there, and they clipped off the bad part and put it back together with like, a chip clip (packaging clip),” he jokingly added.
