Travis Barker’s diagnosis
Weeks ago, the shutterbugs spotted Travis Barker getting rushed to the hospital in Los Angeles. The drummer’s fans also took to social media to express their concerns over his health. Meanwhile, his daughter Alabama also shared a note on Instagram earlier asking the fans to pray for his recovery.
Later, Travis Barker also shared a statement on his own that reads, “During the endoscopy, I had a very small polyp removed right in a very sensitive area usually handed by specialists, which unfortunately damaged a critical pancreatic drainage tube. This resulted in severe life threatening pancreatitis. I am so very very grateful that with intensive treatment I am currently much better.”
