Jimmy Fallon Explains Injury on ‘Tonight Show’: ‘Usually They Cut Your Finger Off’.

It was like a slapstick cartoon or a schlock horror film: as he tripped on a kitchen rug his wife loves but he hates, Tonight Show presenter Jimmy Fallon caught his ring on the benchtop and as he went down, the ring (and the finger) stayed behind. Jimmy Fallon made his “Tonight Show” return on Monday after a two-week hiatus, revealing the gruesome details of the hand injury that almost cost him his finger.The Tonight Show host, 40, took to Twitter to thank fans for sending him “get well” messages while he recovers from the horrific accident that resulted in him undergoing hand surgery last month. Called “ring avulsion”, the condition he suffered in the accident on June 26 meant he was rushed to New York’s Bellevue Hospital emergency room, after tendons in the finger were separated and the digit was bent at a ludicrous angle.

On Monday’s episode, Fallon recounted how he injured his hand last month, explaining that he tripped and fell in his kitchen, and got his wedding ring caught on a countertop as he fell down. A microsurgeon operated on his hand for six hours, using a vein removed from his foot to save the finger, which should recover sensation in a couple of months, the comedian said. So I go, ‘Oh, my god, did I just break my finger?’” said Fallon on “The Tonight Show.” In this image released by NBC, host Jimmy Fallon appears during his monologue on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,” Monday, July 13, 2015 in New York.

He said the time spent recovering in the hospital made him realize that “this is the meaning of my life: I belong on TV,” he said to cheers from the audience.
