Travis Barker has offered fans an update on his health.

Taking to his instagram stories, Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker has posted a note from his doctor, giving fans an update on his health.

Last week, Blink were forced to reschedule two shows from their Las Vegas residency run due to Travis Barker being diagnosed with blood clots in both arms. 

His doctor's note reads as follows:

"To who it may concern:

Travis Barker has developed thrombophlebitis in his bilateral upper extermities as well as cellulitis. 
Treated appropriately with antibiotics and anti-coagulants, his condition should improve over the next few weekd. If untreated or exacerbated, this condition could result in severe adverse effects. Dure to the strenuous nature of Mr. Barker's performances, I have advised him to temporarily discontinue all performing through July 1, 2018. At that thime, he will be re-evaluated by his physicians to see if he can resume performing."

At this stage, the Blink-182 shows affected are the scheduled shows for this Saturday and Sunday.
