As we all waited for a report from any media organization that was close to Travis Barker at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, TMZ came out with a rushed report on his condition. They want to be the first to report on the news, but they failed to accurately deliver the facts. According to them, Travis Barker was taken to the hospital with pancreatitis and doctors believe it was caused by a colonoscopy he recently got.
However, they heard the facts wrong because the colon is in no way connected to the pancreas. The procedure that probably got Travis hospitalized is called a cholecystectomy, which is a similar endoscopic procedure to detect problems with the pancreas. We asked a medical professional about this and this is what they confirmed, that Travis Barker possibly suffers gallstone pancreatitis.

Other reasons Travis Barker could have pancreatitis.
When gall stones travel to the pancreas, this can even be deadly to a patient who doesn’t get it checked as soon as possible. But there is another reason the pancreas can be damaged, which is the chronical consumption of alcohol. If there is what is known as hepatic cirrhosis due to alcohol abuse, the pancreas is one of the first organs to suffer damage. Although, we are not saying Travis suffers hepatic cirrhosis.
These are the only two probable reasons Travis Barker is suffering pancreatitis, not a because he got a colonoscopy. We are happy to report what’s happening to our readers with first-hand medical assistance from a doctor who knows about this. Pancreatitis can cause some of the most severe stomach pains known to humans, Travis must’ve been suffering terribly when he was taken to the hospital.

What are the symptoms of pancreatitis?
Pancreatitis has a variety oof symptoms that include nausea, that intense stomach pain we discussed and a lot of vomiting. If he doctors at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center were quick, the drummer should recover from this problem eventually. However, taking too long to take care of him could’ve ended terribly wrong.
Fortunately, no reports of anything other than what we already discussed have appeared so far. All of the music family is praying for Travis Barker’s speedy recovery, hopefully he can be back on his feet soon and playing those drums as only he knows how to do it.
