President Donald Trump's annual physical is set for Friday, when the American public will see if he followed the doctor's orders from previous year.
Trump did not undergo any procedures requiring sedation or anesthesia, Conley reported. Dr. Conley is a Navy officer and current director of the White House medical unit. Doctors past year recommended he lose weight, exercise more and change his diet.
Aides said he now eats more fish than he used to but still enjoys steaks, well done with ketchup on the side, and fried potatoes prepared by the chefs at the White House and at the Trump International Hotel in Washington. As of December 2017, he had spent 168 days at his golf properties since taking office, according to NBC News, but it's unclear how many days he actually spent golfing. With the White House kitchen too understaffed to cater a meal, Trump stepped in: He ordered burgers, french fries and pizza.
According to a CNN report, the physical is expected to be conducted by Dr. Sean Conley who took over for Ronny Jackson past year.More news: Seifert stars as New Zealand inflict India’s worst T20 defeat
Trump was declared to be in "excellent health" in January 2018 after a battery of tests on his heart, lungs, gastrointestinal system and other areas.
No further details on the president's health have been released yet. Conley conducted this year's examination on Mr. Trump, which took place "over the course of approximately four hours".
The nomination ran into trouble early as politicians questioned his qualifications to run the government's second-largest department.
Acting Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney and Trump are both aware of the probe, Politico notes, adding that the president is infuriated that leaks have been occurring from within his own White House.
In last year's exam, a stress test found above-average exercise capacity and a cognitive assessment was normal.
