Travis Barker shows gnarly image of the hand surgery he just underwent


This past week, bass player Tom DeLonge issued an apology to the people who will be affected by Blink-182’spostponed tour dates. The reason is because drummer Travis Barker has a dislocation that needs surgery on his left hand. Due to the nature of his craft, the doctor told him he needed to undergo this surgery if he wanted to play drums again. Fortunately, the surgery was a success and Travis Barker confirmed he will be back playing drums as soon as he recovers from this surgery. Great news for all music fans around the world but Travis wanted to add a shock factor to what happened.

There are times when people who can’t get to watch their favorite artists due to an emergency, they don’t understand the gravity of the situation. Barker was transparent from the first moment his surgery was announced. First, he posted a series of videos and pictures that show perfectly what he is going through. One of his bigger fingers was quite swollen and it seemed out of place. In the image he posted on Friday, Travis showed an image with a trigger warning in the caption.

In a et of two images, Travis is shown already wraped up after the intervention. The following image is even covered by an Instagram warning. Squeamish people won’t like what they see, watch at your own discretion. Travis also wrote: “Thank you for all the love and prayers and understanding this week as I went into surgery. It was a hard decision to make but ultimately I couldn’t continue to play the drums without it. It was inevitable that my finger would have dislocated again without fixing the torn ligament surgically. So grateful for Dr. Shin and that my surgery was a success so that I can keep doing what I love and see you guys on tour soon.”
