Severe inflammation of the pancreas, caused by a colonoscopy procedure, was the reason Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker was rushed to the hospital Tuesday, according to a new report.

Sources told TMZ that Barker, 46, had the procedure recently, leading to his pancreatitis, which can cause nausea, stomach pain, vomiting and other symptoms.

Barker was taken to a hospital near the Los Angeles home he shares with wife Kourtney Kardashian before he was transferred by ambulance to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center.

Kardashian, who married Barker last month, has reportedly remained by his side since.


In an apparent indication of his condition, Barker tweeted, “God save me” on Tuesday.

People who are at average risk for colorectal cancer should start screening at 45 with colonoscopies, according to Cancer.org.
