46-year-old musician complains of extreme pain after getting rid of polyps and suffering from life-threatening pancreatitis
Travis Barker, 46, a famous American musician, confessed the pain of pancreatitis.
He told Instagram on the 2nd (local time) how he was taken to the emergency room and how he feels.
“Last Monday, I was in a good mood and had an endoscopy. However, after dinner, I was hospitalized due to severe pain,” he said.
“In general, we removed small polyps in very sensitive areas handled by experts, and unfortunately, an important pancreatic drain was damaged. This is life-threatening pancreatitis,” he explained.
In the meantime, he added a prayer emoticon, saying, “I am very grateful that it is much better now with intensive treatment.”
According to the Mayo Clinic, pancreatitis is an inflammation of the pancreas. Symptoms that vary depending on the severity of the inflammation may include fever, nausea, vomiting, and unintended weight loss.
Dr. Ara Sahakian, a gastroenterologist at USC, said pancreatitis caused by colonoscopy is “very rare.”
His wife, Courtney Kardashian, also issued a statement on her husband’s health.
“Travis and I had regular endoscopy together and he ended up with severe, life-threatening pancreatitis,” he said.
He then said, “I’m really grateful that specialists, doctors, and nurses at Shidas Sinai University took such great care of my husband and me during our stay.”
Shortly after the news of Barker’s hospitalization, his daughter, Ruela Barker, urged her social media followers to “send a prayer.”
Kourtney Kardashian married Scott Dixie in 2006 but divorced in 2015. They have three children, Mason, 11, Penelope, 9, and Lane, 7.
Barker married Courtney Kardashian for the third time. He married Melissa Kennedy from 2001 to 2002 and Shanner Mockler from 2004 to 2008. Barker has a son, Landon, 18, and a daughter, Alabama, 15
