Blink 182 fans are still in shock!
Drummer Travis Barker (46) was admitted to the “Cedars-Sinai Medical Center” clinic in Los Angeles on Tuesday afternoon (local time) – with his wife Kourtney Kardashian (43) at his side. Barker complained of severe abdominal pain.
The musician could barely walk from “extreme pain,” according to a source. People magazine reported. Barker was taken to the hospital on a stretcher as seen in photos.
Mrs. Kourtney followed the stretcher in a black hoodie. She didn’t leave him “from his side”. Barker apparently still had the strength to type, tweeting, “God save me.”
Now it’s clear what caused the hellish pain. Pancreatitis – inflammation of the pancreas. This causes pain that can spread to the back. Nausea and vomiting can also result.
According to celebrity portal “ TMZThe doctors at the hospital concluded that the pancreatitis was the result of a colonoscopy that the drummer recently underwent.
The musician himself has not yet activated it. Actually, a (chronic) inflammation of the pancreas is more likely to be due to the consequences of alcoholism. Barker has reached for the bottle many times in his life. He also did not say no to strong painkillers, as he himself made public.
“For breakfast I had four joints, four vicodin, one valium and one oxycodone. Because that was the only way I was able to leave the house. I had to get medical attention first before I could get in the car. It was tough,” Barker said in an interview with the billboard“-Magazine.
Probably a consequence of his shattered life. Barker lost his mother while he was in college. He survived a plane crash with burns all over his body and became addicted to painkillers. One of his best friends died from an overdose.
Only his children gave him the strength to stop everything: “It wasn’t until I had my children that everything changed.”
Years later – the kids are now 16 (daughter Alabama) and 18 (son Landon) – perhaps the wild days of yesteryear are taking their toll…
