Blink-182’s Travis Barker has shared a new health update after recently being hospitalized with pancreatitis. The drummer said the following in a series of tweets:

“I went in for an endoscopy Monday feeling great. But After dinner, I developed excruciating pain and have been hospitalized ever since.

Blink-182’s Mark Hoppus Reveals The Type Of Cancer He Is Battling

During a recent livestream on Twitch, Blink-182’s Mark Hoppus further opened up about his battle with cancer. The musician also revealed that he was diagnosed with stage 4-A Diffuse large B-cell lymphoma, which is the same type of cancer his mother previously beat.

Hoppus said the following:

“It’s entered enough parts of my body that I’m stage 4, which is, I think the highest that it goes.”

He also discussed an upcoming PET scan, which will reveal if his chemotherapy treatments are working:

“Ideally I go in tomorrow and they say, ‘Congratulations! Your chemotherapy has worked and you are all done and you’ll never have to think about this cancer again for the rest of your life.’ Even if the cancer’s totally gone from my whole body, they give me three more rounds of chemo just to make sure.”

Hoppus went on to describe the side effects that the chemotherapy has had on him:

“The first chemo, I felt like I was a zombie that fell onto an electric fence and was just being shocked… The second round of chemo, I just felt very weak and tired. Really just like the worst flu ever. The third round of chemo, I started retching. Nauseous and that whole thing.”

“Let me tell you something that is real, and it absolutely sucks — a side effect of the chemotherapy is you get something called ‘chemo brain.’ And for me, I forget things that I just should have on call like people’s names, song titles, anything.”

Despite his diagnosis, the musician says he is trying to remain positive:

“We’re beating this cancer. It’s just a matter of time.”
