Jimmy Fallon Almost Lost His Finger In The Most GRAPHIC Way Possible [VIDEO].

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. NEW YORK (AP) — “Tonight” show host Jimmy Fallon spent 10 days in a hospital intensive care unit after tripping in his kitchen and injuring a finger so badly it required six hours of microsurgery to save.Following a gruesome finger injury and a brief summer vacation, Jimmy Fallon returned to The Tonight Show Monday with Paul Rudd and a new drinking game called Drinko.

Jimmy Fallon canceled his TV show because of a mysterious hand injury, and on Monday the late night host finally explained how he almost had his finger amputated. The comic was back at work Monday for the first time following the June 26 accident in his New York home, wearing a cast on his left hand that extended nearly to the fingernail of his ring finger. The incident took place June 26th in Fallon’s kitchen, where his foot caught on a braided rug — “I can’t wait to burn it to the ground,” he cracked — and sent him tumbling. In addition to the smorgasbord of liquids both delicious and repulsive, The Tonight Show’s Drinko was also presented as a perverted machine that continually asks Fallon and Rudd to “mount me.” (Rudd compares Drinko’s voice to 2-XL.) Rudd drops his disc into Drinko first, forcing Fallon to imbibe peppermint schnapps.

He was rushed to a New York City emergency room, where a microsurgeon treated his hand for “ring avulsion.” “Apparently, the odds aren’t great and usually they cut your finger off, but this guy did microsurgery for over six hours and had to take a vein out my foot,” Fallon said. “This is the craziest story — I was knocked out and didn’t know any of this.” “I was watching TV and I was reading this meaning of life thing, and I think this is the meaning of my life,” Fallon said. “I belong on TV and I should be talking to people who are watching, who are either in an ICU or wherever you are, at home, or if anyone’s suffering at all — this is my job. At the emergency room, however, he was told it was not a broken finger, but “ring avulsion.” “Basically what it is,” Fallon explained, “my ring got caught on the countertop when I was going down and stuck there and pulled my finger up. In an attempt to be more like himself around the legendary actor, Rudd decided to have some fun with Douglas. “I thought, I’m gonna Basic Instinct him,” a nod to Sharon Stone’s revealing interrogation scene. We gotta send you somewhere else.'” Fallon ended up at the Bellevue Hospital Center, where a doctor clad in a bow tie and cowboy boots performed micro-surgery on his finger for six hours.

It did not go well: In his return episode, Fallon was still sporting the bandages from his disgusting hand injury, which the host went into more detail about early in the episode. 2015 may not bring everything that Back to the Future II promised it would: flying cars, self-lacing shoes, we don’t see ’em happening over the next 12 months. (Then again, don’t bet against Nike.) But this year will definitely pack plenty of punch when it comes to cultural happenings. The host said that ring avulsion cases typically end with an amputated finger, but the doctor saved his by taking a vein from Fallon’s foot and placing it in his hand. Mad Max will roar back out of the apocalypse while Mad Men rides off into the sunset, rock’s Antichrist Superstar and hip-hop’s Yeezus will rise again. I’m here to make you laugh.” Coincidentally, while Fallon was recovering, his sidekick Steve Higgins was bedridden with a 103-degree fever caused by lyme disease. The entire Roots crew, however, survived their vacations unscathed — though Questlove did break a nail. “I should say the fall was funny,” Fallon added with a grin. “I’m a comedian, so I have to fall funny.
