Travis Barker contacted his fans after the moment of shock last week. The Blink 182 drummer was hospitalized on Tuesday (June 28) with an acute inflammation of the pancreas. In an Instagram story, the musician now explains what happened: “I went for an endoscopy on Monday and felt great, but after dinner I got unbearable pain and was taken to the hospital.”

A “very small polyp” was removed during the endoscopy. “Unfortunately, an important drainage tube of the pancreas was damaged in the process,” explains Barker. This led to “severe, life-threatening pancreatitis”. However, after “intensive treatment” Barker would be “much better”. He was “very grateful”.
