Travis Barker’s emergency trip to the hospital Tuesday is reported to be due to pancreatitis, which doctors believe to be triggered by a colonoscopy. According to TMZ, sources connected to Barker have confirmed the hospitalization was a result of pancreas inflammation which includes symptoms like nausea, intense stomach pain and vomiting.
The Blink-182 drummer was rushed to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center with his wife Kourtney Kardashian at his side, after first checking into West Hills Hospital and Medical Center on Tuesday. Barker’s daughter, Alabama Barker, shared a message through her Instagram story that same day, asking fans to “Please send your prayers.”
The 46-year-old Barker’s medical history involves illnesses like staph infection and cellulitis, which is a bacterial infection that can cause swelling, inflammation and pain. In 2018, he suffered blood clots in his arms, forcing a string of shows from Blink-182’s Las Vegas residency to be canceled. And in 2008, Barker survived a plane crash that claimed the lives of six people; the accident left him with third-degree burns all over his body.
