Philbin went under the knife for hip replacement and heart surgery in recent years. Luckily, he recovered like a sports star and was able to return to television without so much as a whimper. With the admission that he was not alright on air, Regis is probably in pain.

Heres what the talk show host said to Kelly:

Ive got the indigestion problem. Its more than indigestion. I just decided yesterday to go in for a scopeSo annoying. Sometimes you have a meal and theres blockage and you cant get the food down. I have to drink the barium and theyll put me under the x-ray or MRI.

It sounds like a tough procedure for Regis. Lets hope its only acid-reflux issues and nothing more!
