Noah's message was in response to Fallon tweeting: "Hey @Trevornoah, tell everyone at the hospital I said hey! Get better soon buddy!"
The Comedy Central host underwent the emergency operation, but was back on the air a day later. "Thank you for your love and support," he wrote on Thursday. "The Daily Show is back on today but I can't stand up."
Thank you for your love and support. The Daily Show is back on today but I can't stand up. Tune in 11pm Comedy Central.
Noah also made light of how quickly he returned to his anchor's seat following the health scare. "I'm back from the world’s shortest vacation," he quipped. "Some of you may have heard, I was out yesterday with a touch of emergency appendectomy surgery."
"Big thank you to everyone," Noah continued. "And of course, Comedy Central for giving me one day off. I’m joking!"
The jokes didn't stop there. "People were writing things like, 'Comedy Central -- one day off after surgery?! Is it because he's black?!'" Noah said. "The best message I got was, 'Is it Comedy Central, or the cotton fields?'"
