Elvis Presley Died from Chronic Constipation - His Doctor Tells ALL

Elvis Presley fans have long believed that their "King of Rock n' Roll" died from an irregular heartbeat aka cardiac arrhythmia and that that condition was caused from Presley's obesity, drug dependency and weak heart.

However, Dr. George “Nick” Nichopoulos, Presley's doctor and friend has finally come forward and written down what he thinks killed Presley and Nichopoulos' findings are not pretty... Nichopoulos believes chronic constipation was the cause.

For more than the last decade, “Dr. Nick” was by Presley’s side and was the one who tried to resuscitate him when he died. Nichopoulos also just released a book titled, “The King and Dr. Nick" about what he believes caused Elvis Presley's death and the time they shared together.

“Dr. Nick” told POP TARTS that “After he died we weren’t sure (of the exact cause of death) so I continued to do some research and 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. I just want to get the story straight – it all made sense with the new research that was done...
We didn’t realize until the autopsy that his constipation was as bad – we knew it was bad because it was hard for us to treat, but we didn’t realize what it had done. We just assumed that the constipation was secondary to the meds that he was taking for his arthritic pain and for his insomnia."

The autopsy showed that Presley’s colon was 8 to 9 feet in length as compared to the normal 4 to 5 feet long and was 5 to 6 inches in diameter as compared to the normal2 to 3 inches.

Back in the 70's, a colostomy which is surgery to remove part of the colon was the primary treatment for chronic constipation but Presley’s “ego” wouldn't allow him to follow through with it.

Nichopoulos said, “[Elvis] would get embarrassed, he’d have accidents onstage. He’d have to change clothes and come back because of the way we were trying to treat his constipation. So if they had done the colostomy then, he’d probably still be here. But it wasn’t acceptable treatment at that time. Now the treatment is short.”

The most shocking claim comes as Nichopoulos states that Presley’s obesity may have been caused by his severe constipation and not overeating.

MAN!!! That's just embarrassing! I certainly hope that if I die, all my embarrassing gastrointestinal colon issues die with me, never to be spoken or written about. No one but my doctor and my doctor alone needs to know I can't poop properly or the size of my poop hole or anything pertaining to that area.
