Presidential Doctor: Joe Biden on the verge of overweight
The doctor pointed out two health problems – stiff gait and frequent grunting. “The president’s gait seems stiffer than in the past. He himself admits that he feels stiff in the morning that softens during the day,” the doctor wrote. Coughing more than in the past is due to a condition called gastroesophageal reflux disease.
O’Connor also reported that the president had a benign polyp removed during the colonoscopy. Joe Biden weighs 83 kilograms, which with his height means that he is on the verge of overweight.
The White House reported that Joe Biden was anesthetized during the colonoscopy and was handed over to the authorities by Vice President Kamali Harris for an hour and 25 minutes in accordance with constitutional procedures.
