Matthew Perry is on the mend after having gastrointestinal surgery.
The 48-year-old actor’s rep told TMZ Perry recently had surgery in Los Angeles to repair a gastrointestinal perforation.
“He is grateful for the concern and asks for continued privacy as he heals,” the rep said, according to People.
A gastrointestinal perforation occurs when a hole forms in the esophagus, stomach, small intestine or large intestine. Causes can include gastric ulcers, appendicitis and inflammatory bowel disease.
