Rep Confirms Travis Barker Discharged from Hospital


Travis Barker


Following his hospital release, Travis reportedly will continue his recovery at home and has requested privacy while he continues to recover from the burns he sustained as a result of the jet crash.

A representative for Travis Barker confirmed to Access Hollywood Friday, October 17 that the celebrity drummer has been discharged from Sherman Oaks' Grossman Burn Center, the Los Angeles-area facility where he has been receiving treatment since September 29 after being involved in tragic plane crash. As of press time, he reportedly will continue his recovery at home and has requested privacy while he continues to recover from the second- and third-degree burns he sustained as a result of the incident.

It remains unclear on what treatment Travis got during his hospital stay. His ex-wife, Shanna Moakler, has said in an interview with US Weekly that his rocker husband has received several skin grafts and gone through multiple surgeries. "He just had his seventh surgery where they checked on his grafts," the actress-model told the magazine. "That's when they shave the skin off and then staple cadaver and pig skin right on so the skin underneath can heal to see if they had to graft more, but they don't. He might be out in the next two weeks. The doctors foresee a full recovery."

One day prior to his hospital release, Travis posted a message on his MySpace blog, giving update on his latest condition. "Just another quick one to let everyone know that I think I'm getting out of the hospital soon," he wrote. "I can't wait to get out of here and be home with the babes. The doctors say I'm healing up quickly and I'm gonna be out of here b4 you know it."

Along with the message, Travis also posted several pictures of him on the hospital bed, posing with some of his friends who stopped by to pay him a visit, among them were rapper The Game and his female friend Yoko from Matsuhisa, who "brought some food in for" them.

Prior to his California return, Travis was treated at Georgia's Joseph M. Still Burn Center. He relocated to his home base on a specially equipped bus staffed by medical personnel, E! News reported.
