Travis Barker was rushed to hospital earlier this week with wife Kourtney Kardashian by his side in Los Angeles. It was later reported that the drummer was suffering from pancreatitis, which led to his hospitalization. Both Travis and Kourtney took to Instagram on Saturday, sharing statements to give his fans an update on his current condition.
The Blink 182 drummer shared a statement on his Instagram story explaining why he was taken to the hospital, saying: “I went for an endoscopy on Monday and felt great, but right after eating I got excruciating pain and have been in pain ever since. I was hospitalized with endoscopy, I had a very small polyp removed in a very sensitive area, usually treated by specialists, which unfortunately damaged a critical pancreatic drainage tube. This resulted in severe, life-threatening pancreatitis.”
Barker went on to admit that he is currently in recovery mode and said he is much better thanks to the intensive treatment he has received so far. Also, posting an update on her husband’s health, Kourtney Kardashian wrote in her Instagram story how it has been a “scary and emotional” week.
