How old is Elvis Presley

Elvis Presley: He really died of that!

Elvis Presley died on August 16, 1977 Elvis Presley died: But there are still doubts about the official cause of death.

When Elvis Presley died, he was just 42 years old. Since then there have been rumors of his death. The official cause of death is sudden cardiac death. The responsible medical examiner diagnosed a disease of the heart vessels at the autopsy, which had been commissioned by Elvis' family. But there were early doubts about this explanation.

What did Elvis really die of?

Other reports pointed in a different direction. Accordingly, it is conceivable that Elvis died of an overdose of medication. Elvis's family doctor takes care of a spectacular twist in the boiling speculative kitchen.

Dr. George Nichopoulos contradicts the official statement in an interview with Fox News. In fact, the King is said to have suffered from a severe form of chronic constipation:

It wasn't until his autopsy that we realized how severe his constipation actually was.

Could Elvis have been saved?

In fact, Elvis had heart problems too - and he was taking medication for them. For his family doctor, however, it is clear that it was not his heart or his medication but his colon that caused death.

Maybe Elvis could even have been saved. His colon disease was congenital. But in an operation he could have removed part of the colon and put in an artificial anus. It is possible that Elvis' pride ultimately stood in the way of this intervention.
