This type of perforation happens "when a hole forms all the way through the stomach, large bowel, or small intestine", Healthline.com reports.

Actor Matthew Perry is recovering after surgery to fix a ruptured bowel.

'He is grateful for the concern and asks for continued privacy as he heals, ' reps for Matthew said in a statement to Mail Online, confirming he had been admitted to hospital on Tuesday.

The symptoms for the perforation include severe abdominal pain, nausea and vomiting and if left untreated the complications can be life-threatening.

The actor struggled with drug and alcohol addictions throughout his time on the show, and entered rehab in both 1997 and 2001 to recover from his use of vicodin, methadone, amphetamines and alcohol.

Speaking candidly about his experience to PEOPLE in 2013, he said: "I couldn't stop". Eventually, the cast and crew became very hostile because each member took a different side.

The "War of the Roses" star sat down for a lengthy chat with the outlet, where she spilled some '80s Hollywood secrets, dished on her unpleasant experience on the set of "Friends" and had some choice words for Donald Trump, Nicolas Cage and Burt Reynolds.

"Getting sober is a really hard thing to do".

Matthew says he now uses his notoriety to help fellow addicts in their journey toward sobriety as much as possible. "I've learned a lot from my failures", Matthew explained. During a February interview with Gay Times, she said, "I don't think [the show has] aged well".

Matthew shot to fame in the 1990s as the charismatic and beloved Chandler Bing in the hugely success United States series Friends. "Rheumatoid arthritis hit in my late 30s - the last of my years in which Hollywood would consider me a sexually appealing leading lady", she told the magazine. We can't beat it.
