Travis Barker had to be hospitalized recently and has now confirmed the reports stating that it was because of severe pancreatitis. It was bad enough to be deemed life-threatening.
On Saturday, Travis Barker started telling the tale via his stories on Instagram. He said that he had gone for an endoscopy test on Monday without any symptoms. However, following dinner that night, he started suffering from excruciating pain. Ever since then, he has been in the hospital.
He further revealed that he had to get a “small polyp” surgically removed. The polyp was situated in an extremely sensitive area and specialists usually handled it. However, the procedure resulted in a critical drainage tube linked to the pancreas being damaged. This finally caused a severe bout of pancreatitis.

Kourtney Kardashian, his wife, also posted her comments on the behalf of her husband in regards to his health struggles.
