President’s doctor says Biden is “healthy” and “full of energy” after a physical

President Joe Biden remains “healthy” and “energetic,” the president’s physician said Friday in a report.

“The President remains fit for office and fully discharges all of his duties with no exceptions or accommodations,” wrote physician Kevin O’Connor in a 6-page report.

Biden traveled to Walter Reed Medical Center in Maryland for a medical examination and colonoscopy.

“I feel great. Nothing has changed, ”the president told reporters after his appearance.

The first-term Democrat, who turned 79 on November 20, handed over power to Vice President Kamala Harris for 85 minutes because he was under anesthesia. Harris became the first woman to receive presidential powers. A similar translation was carried out by President George W. Bush in 2002 and 2007.

A polyp was found during the colonoscopy, O’Connor said, and a histological examination will be completed shortly. Biden has never had colon cancer.

The last publicized exam, also taken by O’Connor, was taken in 2019. Meanwhile, two new conditions were discovered. One has been described as a “constrained gait.”

Biden told his doctor that he suffers from “morning stiffness,” which “improves during the day,” O’Connor wrote. A group of specialists who assessed the condition determined that it arose due to degenerative changes in Biden’s spine.

The neurological examination showed no signs of a neurological disorder such as a stroke.

Biden will receive physical therapy to try and fix the problem.

Another new finding was mild nerve damage in Biden’s foot. The cause of the problem has not been established, although O’Connor ruled out diabetes, alcoholism, vitamin B12 deficiency, and thyroid disease.

An attempt to find the cause of Biden’s increasing frequency of coughing and coughing determined that it was probably due to stomach acid. Biden has gastroesophageal reflux. This condition is stable, as is his heartbeat – once it was irregular – and his high cholesterol is treated with Crestor.

Biden also takes over-the-counter seasonal allergy medications.

O’Connor used the same two words he used in 2019, “healthy and energetic,” when referring to Biden’s fitness. Overall, he said, the results “have not fundamentally changed from the baseline.” Biden was 5 feet 11 inches tall, weighed 184 pounds, and had a body mass index of 25.

Neither the doctor nor the White House mentioned any cognitive tests.

Biden is America’s oldest president.

Some lawmakers have raised concerns about his visual acuity, and polls show that about half of Americans believe he is in poor health and mental health.

“We’re in great shape and I’m looking forward to my 58th birthday,” Biden told reporters.
