If things had gone differently, Elvis Presley would be 86 today Birthday been

Instead, the king suffered on Jan. August 1977 a tragic death when he was found covertly on the floor of his bathroom after years of substance abuse. He was just 42 years old

The once lithe star weighed 25 stones and had won three and a half stones in the past few months alone after barricading himself in his bedroom and eating on cheeseburger platters while his health deteriorated

He had a full-time nurse and apparently refused to bathe in 1975, which resulted in wounds on his body. He suffered from chronic constipation and had a four-month-old stool compacted in his bowels

The singer also took a cocktail with drugs and had almost 9 in the seven months before his death000 tablets, vials and injections are prescribed

And it was his girlfriend Ginger Alden who found the rock and roll star’s body with his pajama bottoms around his ankles and his butt up in the air as if it had fallen forward while sitting on the toilet

Ginger, who was only 21 years old at the time, wrote about the agonizing scene in her memoir: “His arms were on the floor, close to his sides, palms facing upwards

An autopsy was performed the same day, but the report was immediately sealed by the family for 50 years, sparking a series of speculations about what had killed him

Dan Warlick, chief investigator for the Tennessee Office of the State Chief Medical Examiner, attended the autopsy and established the popular theory that Elvis died trying to go to the bathroom

He once said, “Presley’s chronic constipation – the result of years of prescription drug abuse and high-fat, high-cholesterol gorging – resulted in what is known as the Valsalvas Maneuver, in simple terms, the effort to defecate, depressing the abdominal aorta Singer together and closed his heart “

Others claimed he died of a drug overdose, but when the investigation resumed in 1994 coroner Joseph Davis disagreed

He explained, “The position of Elvis Presley’s body was such that he was about to sit on the dresser when the seizure occurred. He threw himself back in the air on the carpet and was dead when he did fell to the ground

“If it had been a drug overdose, [Elvis] would have slipped into an increasing state of sleep. He would have pulled up his pajama bottoms and crawled to the door for help. It takes hours to die from drugs”

The results of the autopsy are to be published in 2027 By then, well-known California doctor Forest Tennant had the greatest insight into the star’s mysterious death, who actually checked the report while he was reading Elvis’ doctor, Dr George Nichopoulos, who was later acquitted for overprescribing medication

For Mr. Tennant an important clue was the deterioration of Elvis’ entire body, with disease plaguing almost every organ

As a young man, Elvis had been extremely fit, played soccer, and practiced martial arts. As a teenager, he began using drugs such as amphetamines, opioids, and sedatives, and is known to have been on an appalling diet

But for Tennant, that wasn’t enough to explain the long list of illnesses the rock star suffered from in the late 1960s

At first he complained of dizziness, back pain and insomnia, eye infections and headaches In 1973 he was hospitalized in a semi-coma and suffered from jaundice, severe shortness of breath and significant swelling of his face, bloated stomach, constipation, stomach, bleeding ulcer and hepatitis

He was hospitalized again in 1975 with high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and a condition called megacolon, which causes the colon to swell and toxins to flood the body

He also had at least four near-death overdoses that left him unconscious and needed a resuscitation, and his heart was twice its normal

And although he had never smoked, he also suffered from emphysema. What caused all these disease processes in the stomach, liver, lungs, heart, spine, eyes and intestines?

Forest believes it all stemmed from a severe head injury he sustained in 1967 that caused progressive autoimmune inflammatory disease

In his opinion, the injury was so severe that the brain tissue loosened and entered his bloodstream when Elvis tripped over a television cable and hit himself in the bathtub

There the body identified the matter as foreign and produced antibodies to destroy it, causing hypogammaglobulinemia, a disorder of the body’s immune system

Little was known about autoimmune diseases at the time, but nowadays they are known to cause most of the symptoms Elvis exhibited, including chronic pain, irrational behavior, obesity, and enlarged and diseased organs such as the heart and intestines

And in 2016, Garry Rodgers, a retired homicide detective and coroner, told the Huffington Post that, given these findings, he would have attributed Elvis’s death to a heart attack caused by heart disease and drug use due to an autoimmune disease caused by a brain injury was triggered

He said: “I would have to classify Elvis’ death as an accident. It’s nobody’s fault – especially not Elvis. He was a badly injured and sick man

“There is no specific negligence on the part of anyone and definitely no cover-up or conspiracy of a crime

“If Dr Forrest Torrent is right, there was just no real understanding back then of what really killed the King of Rock & Roll “
