Presidential candidate Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) keeps on ticking like the Energizer Bunny. Even though he is 78-years-old, he has the energy of a far younger man. After his 2016 run against Secretary Hillary Clinton was over, he kept up his rigorous campaign schedule for Democrats across the nation. That halted yesterday.
He had a medical evaluation and two heart stints put in place, after experiencing chest pain. Sanders was resting comfortably and will take a short break from his 20200 presidential campaign while he recuperates.
The campaign released a press release that read:
‘During a campaign event yesterday evening, Sen. Sanders experienced some chest discomfort. Following medical evaluation and testing he was found to have a blockage in one artery and two stents were successfully inserted.’
The release continued:
‘Sen. Sanders is conversing and in good spirits. He will be resting up over the next few days. We are canceling his events and appearances until further notice, and we will continue to provide appropriate updates.’
Spokesperson for Sanders’ campaign Symone Sanders show what the doctor said about the senator’s health in 2016:
‘You are in overall very good health and active in your professional work, and recreational lifestyle without limitation.’
‘There is nothing surprising in these medical records. The senator is in great health, as he has previously said. He would not have done this if he didn’t think he was up to this both mentally and physically.”
He has also been treated for gout, mildly elevated cholesterol, hypothyroidism handled with replacement therapy, and diverticulitis. Over the years, he had superficial skin cancers, lower back strain, and laryngitis caused by acid reflux (GERD). He also had a hernia repaired.
