UPDATED 7/2, 6:47 p.m. ET: Travis Barker is speaking out on his recent medical scare.
Days after he was hospitalized with severe pancreatitis, the 46-year-old drummer took to social media to provide a quick update on his condition. Barker said his troubles started Monday after he underwent a routine endoscopy.
“I went in for an endoscopy Monday feeling great. But After dinner, I developed excruciating pain and have been hospitalized ever since,” he wrote. “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.”
Barker said the damage resulted in “life-threatening pancreatitis.” Though he didn’t provide details on his subsequent treatment, he told fans he is making a strong recovery.
“I am so very very grateful that with intensive treatment I am currently much better,” he wrote.
Kourtney Kardashian also took to social media to share an update on her husband’s hospitalization.
“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 wrote. “Travis and I went in for a routing endoscopy together and he ended up with severe, life-threatening pancreatitis.”
She continued, “I am so grateful to God for healing my husband, for all of your prayers for him and for us, for the overwhelming outpouring of love and support.”
