Barker took to his Instagram Story Saturday (July 2) to explain Monday’s incident, “I went in for an endoscopy Monday feeling great. But after dinner, I developed excruciating pain and have been hospitalized ever since,” he wrote.
He continues, “During the endoscopy, I had a very small polyp removed right in a very sensitive area, usually handled by specialists, which unfortunately damaged a critical pancreatic drainage tube. This resulted in severe life threatening pancreatitis.”

“Oh what a scary and emotional week it has been,” the Poosh founder wrote. “Our health is everything and sometimes we take for granted how quickly it can change.”
