    The Blink-182 drummer took to his Instagram Story on Saturday and revealed that the pain he suffered resulted in “severe life-threatening pancreatitis.”

    “I went in for an endoscopy Monday feeling great,” he wrote. “But After dinner, I developed excruciating pain and I have been hospitalized ever since. During the endoscopy, I had a very small polyp removed right in the very sensitive area, usually handled by specialists, which unfortunately damaged a critical pancreatic drainage tube. This resulted in severe life-threatening pancreatitis.”

    “Thank you to everyone who has reached out with concern to my ex and father of my children, I know he is in great hands and surrounded by loving support and the best medical teams available and his beautiful wife Kourtney,” Shanna told ET.

    “I pray for a speedy recovery and for the comfort of my children as I know they are very concerned and worried,” she added. “Travis has beat the odds numerous times and I know with his support system he will do it again. I will always be there for him and my children.”
