Barker wrote on Twitter that he went for an endoscopy and felt “great” but after dinner he went into “excruciating pain” and has since been treated at the hospital. He said: “During the endoscopy, I had a very small polyp removed directly in a very sensitive area that would normally be treated by specialists and unfortunately damaged a critical pancreatic drainage tube. This resulted in severe life-threatening pancreatitis.”
Barker, who is married to reality TV star Kourtney Kardashian, said he’s “so very, very grateful that I’m doing much better with intensive treatment right now.” Kardashian also shared a statement online, describing the past week as “scary and emotional.”
“Our health is everything and sometimes we take for granted how quickly it can change,” she wrote on Instagram. “Travis and I went together for a routine endoscopy and he developed severe, life-threatening pancreatitis. I am so thankful to God for healing my husband, for all your prayers for him and for us, for the overwhelming outpouring of love and support. I am so touched and grateful.”
Kardashian, who recently changed her last name to Barker-Kardashian on her official Instagram page, thanked the specialists, doctors and nurses at Cedars-Sinai for looking after her and her husband during their stay. She added, “It’s crazy how sometimes words can never really express the gratitude or feelings I have inside.”
