Travis Barker was hospitalized earlier this week due to “life-threatening” pancreatitis. The drummer now says he is “currently much better.”
On Saturday, he took to Instagram to update his fans.
“I went in for an endoscopy Monday feeling great,” he began a message on his Instagram Story. “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.”
“I am so very very grateful that with intensive treatment, I am currently much better.”
Kourtney Kardashian also took to Instagram Story to share a message, saying she is “so touched and appreciative” for the support.
“Oh what a scary and emotional week it has been. Our health is everything and sometimes we take for granted how quickly it can change,” she continued. “Travis and I went in for a routine endoscopy together and he ended up with severe, life-threatening pancreatitis.”
She added that she is “so grateful to God for healing my husband.”
“It’s crazy how sometimes words could never truly express the gratitude or feelings I have inside of me.”
