Shadows Fall Drummer Has Pancreatitis

Jason Bittner

Well wishes go out today to Shadows Fall drummer Jason Bittner.

Jason has been diagnosed with acute pancreatitis and will have to forgo a trip he had planned, so that he can heal.

He expects to return to the road when Shadows Fall head back out November 8 with God Forbid, Thy Will Be Done and others.

“Due to my recent health issues, I am under doctors orders to cancel my trip to Austin, Texas, this week to perform at PASIC 2012,” says Jason.

“For over a week, what I thought was a stomach bug (and I was still on tour when all of this started), I came home last week and went to the doctors, and it was written off as just that, a bug,” Bittner explains.

“This past Saturday the pain came back and lingered into Sunday which forced me into the emergency room yesterday. After a day in the hospital I was poked, prodded, tested and it turns out I have acute Pancreatitis, which I’m told can be very serious if left untreated.

“They’re not sure what brought it on (my Dr thinks it was viral), but I have been told by my doctors to not leave this week because I need to sent for more tests/mri, etc to make 100% sure I’ll be road ready for the second leg of the SF tour which starts Nov. 8th – I should be fine, but needless to say I’m very disappointed I will not be able to come perform in Austin this week! Maybe Pasic 2013??”
