He couldn’t do the deuce. This was probably the look on his face as he expired.
It wasn’t a heart condition that killed the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll, it was chronic constipation.
This is the new theory of Elvis Presley’s longtime friend Dr. George Nichopoulos, Fox News reported on Wednesday.
“We weren’t sure [of the exact cause of death] so I continued to do some research,” said Nichopoulos, who was also the personal physician to the legendary singer. “I had some doctors call me from different places and different med schools that were doing research on constipation and different problems you can get into with it.”
Nichopoulos, who was with Elvis when he died, included his theory about the icon’s death in his book, “The King and Dr. Nick.”
According to his autopsy, Nichopoulos said, Elvis’ colon was 5 to 6 inches in diameter, nearly twice the size of the average person. It was also 8 to 9 feet long, compared with the normal 4 to 5 feet.
“We didn’t realize until the autopsy that his constipation was as bad,” he said, noting that when he died there was waste in his colon that was several months old.
Even great talented rock stars are brought down to earth by a lot of shit. Imagine all those kids who grew up being told that their hero died of a drug overdose when the truth is he couldn’t poop. A lot of mean spirited angry parents were full of shit.If you couldn’t take a dump you would be taking drugs too. People do abuse drugs, and they do die from them… but a lot of people who die take drugs.
