Last Tuesday, blink-182’s Travis Barker was rushed to the hospital suffering from terrible stomach pains, It turns out he had pancreatitis, an inflammation of the pancreas that can, under rare circumstances, result from a routine colonoscopy.
Travis has an update for everyone: He’s feeling better.
I went in for an endoscopy Monday feeling great.— Travis Barker (@travisbarker) July 2, 2022
But After dinner, I developed excruciating pain and have been hospitalized ever since.
During the endoscopy, I had a very small polyp removed right in a very sensitive area, usually handled by specialists, which unfortunately damaged a critical pancreatic drainage tube. This resulted in severe life-threatening pancreatitis.— Travis Barker (@travisbarker) July 2, 2022
I am so very very grateful that with intensive treatment I am currently much better. 🙏🏼— Travis Barker (@travisbarker) July 2, 2022
