It was later reported that the drummer suffered from pancreatitis which led to his hospitalisation. Taking to Instagram on Saturday, both Travis and Kourtney shared statements to give an update to his fans on his current condition.
Sharing a statement in his Instagram story, the Blink 182 drummer explained why he was taken to the hospital saying, "I went in for an endoscopy Monday feeling great but right 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."
Barker further admitted that he is currently in recovery mode and mentioned that he is much better thanks to the intensive treatment that he has been receiving so far. Also, posting an update on her husband's health, Kourtney Kardashian wrote in her Instagram story how it has been a "scary and emotional" week.
