Travis Barker speaks out after hospitalization

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

“I went for an endoscopy on Monday and felt great. But after dinner I got excruciating pain and I’ve been hospitalized ever since,” he revealed via his Instagram Stories on Saturday.

He went on to say he had a “small polyp” removed in a “highly sensitive area commonly treated by specialists, which unfortunately damaged a critical pancreatic drainage tube. This resulted in life-threatening pancreatitis.”

“I’m so very grateful that I’m much better now with intensive treatment,” he concluded, adding a prayer emoji.

Wife Kourtney Kardashian also shared a statement about her husband’s health concerns.

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

She continued: “I am so grateful to our specialists, doctors and nurses at Cedars Sinai for taking such good care of my husband and me during our stay.”

As previously reported by Page Six, 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, stood by his side.
