Jimmy Fallon returned to The Tonight Show and explained the horrific details surrounding his finger injury. Jimmy reveals how a “funny fall” in the kitchen turned into a severe hand injury, emergency surgery and 10-days in an ICU.
Fallon explains when he tripped on a braided rug in his home, he attempted to catch himself on a table but instead his wedding ring got caught causing ring avulsion. If you are unaware of what ring avulsion is, think of a glove and how when taking off a glove you pull off the fingers one by one… Imagine that happening to your skin.
Unaware of the extent of his injury, Fallon went to the hospital thinking he had merely broken his finger but soon found out that he would have to be transported to another hospital so that a doctor could perform micro surgery on his finger. Luckily, the doctor was able to save Fallon’s finger removing a vein from his foot and placing it into the damaged finger.
