Matthew Perry has spent three months in hospital

Friends star Matthew Perry has revealed that he has spent the last three months in hospital.

The actor hasn't tweeted since March, but returned to the social media platform in the early hours of Saturday morning (September 15) to write: "Three months in a hospital bed. Check."

Just over a month ago, a representative for the Chandler Bing actor told PEOPLE that Matthew was recovering after being rushed in for emergency surgery.

"Matthew Perry recently underwent surgery in a Los Angeles hospital to repair a gastrointestinal perforation," a statement read. "He is grateful for the concern and asks for continued privacy as he heels."

Gastrointestinal perforation is described by the Healthline website as a hole that has formed all the way through the small intestine, large bowel or stomach.

Symptoms may include chills, severe stomach pain, vomiting, nausea, and fever. It is described as a potentially life-threatening condition that requires immediate medical care.

2017 saw the surprising cancellation of Perry's CBS series The Odd Couple after three seasons in the spring of 2017.

Since then he reprised his Good Wife role of Mike Kresteva in spin-off The Good Fight, executive produced and starred in historical miniseries The Kennedys After Camelot AND brought his dark comedy play The End of Longing to the off-Broadway stage.

Here's hoping that he gets back to work soon.
