Travis Barker speaks out following hospitalization

Travis Barker has confirmed reports that “life threatening pancreatitis” played a part in his recent hospitalization.

“I went in for an endoscopy Monday feeling great. But after dinner, I developed excruciating pain and have been hospitalized ever since,” he revealed via his Instagram Stories Saturday.

He went on to say he had a “small polyp” removed in a “very sensitive area usually handled by specialists, which unfortunately damaged a critical pancreatic drainage tube. this resulted in sever life threatening pancreatitis.”

“I am so very very grateful that with intensive treatment i am currently much better,” he concluded, adding a prayer emoji.

Wife Kourtney Kardashian also shared a statement on her husband’s health struggles.

“Travis and I went in for a routine endoscopy together and he ended up with severe, life-threatening pancreatitis.”

She continued,”I’m so so thankful to our specialists, doctors, and nurses at Cedars Sinai for taking such wonderful care of my husband and me during our stay.”

As Page Six previously reported, the Blink-182 drummer was first rushed to West Hills Hospital and Medical Center on Tuesday before being transported to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles for additional care. Kardashian, 43, was by his side.
