Does Biden have Alzheimer’s

4meAndyou · F
In 1988 Biden had two brain aneurysms.

"After his bid for president was announced on April 25, 2019, Biden published a medical assessment on Dec. 15, 2019, in which his doctor described the aneurisms. (The report is also archived here for reference.)

“The most noteworthy health incident that Vice President Biden has experienced was his intracranial hemorrhage from a cerebral aneurism in 1988. His aneurism was repaired surgically,” wrote Dr. Kevin O’Connor, an associate professor of medicine and the director of executive medicine at George Washington University, who treated Biden at the time.

“During this workup, his team discovered a second aneurism, which had not bled. This was also treated. He has never had any recurrences of any aneurisms. A 2014 CT angiogram showed no recurrence of disease.”

In a The New York Times article published on May 4, 1988, the outlet reported that a spokesperson for the then-senator said that the 45-year-old was “resting comfortably” after his second surgery that year to correct an artery:

The 4 1/2-hour procedure was similar to that performed Feb. 12 on the left side of Mr. Biden’s brain. Under the procedure, a surgeon using a microscope pinches the aneurysm with a clip, bringing the walls of the artery together. The clip remains in the patient.

An intracranial hemorrhage refers to any bleeding between the brain tissue and skull, or within the brain tissue itself, according to the nonprofit medical center Cleveland Clinic. This is also colloquially known as a “brain bleed.” The Columbia University Department of Neurology describes a cerebral aneurism as a “bulging, weakened area in the wall of an artery in the brain” that can result in an “abnormal widening, ballooning, or bleb.” This weakened area in the artery wall can pose the risk of a rupture. Ninety percent of cerebral aneurisms present without any symptoms and measure less than four-tenths of an inch in diameter, posing a low risk of rupture.

A computed tomography scan, more commonly known as a CT scan, is a non-invasive imaging procedure that provides more details than a general X-ray and can be used on any part of the body, including the bones, muscles, fat, and organs, noted Stanford Health Care. In short, it can be used to identify both hairline factures in an ankle and potential aneurisms in the brain that have ruptured."

Biden's surgeon at the time gave him a 35 to 50% chance of a full recovery. Surgical techniques to repair aneurysms in 1988 are not what they are today, and there was bleeding into the brain...similar to a small stroke.

I don't think he does. I say that because unfortunately I have very personal experience with a loved one with Alzheimer's.

I do believe he has some sort of substantial cognitive decline. It's more than just being a major dumbass. Which he also is.
hippyjoe1955 · 61-69, M
He certainly has some form of age related dementia. Not sure it is is Alzheimer's. He is not mentally capable of being POTUS.

@hippyjoe1955 we don’t raise too much hell about it because of his Vice President 😂😂

And then the person proceeding her😵
hippyjoe1955 · 61-69, M
@KlonB Obviously no one is.
I don't think so...🤣

even people with Alzheimer's and Dementia have moments of clarity & lucidity

biden has yet to demonstrate either... 🤔
He has too much water in the oatmeal where his brain should be
He needs to be put into a nursing home

Yes, and it's cruel what the DNC is doing to him.

It worked OK for Reagan. He was more of less a figurehead , led by his advisers. Now you have to admit thats still an improvement of the other guy.😷
heavyone2 · 61-69, M
Yep.. he has a case of chronic "dipshititis"..... then there is Kamilla

It's difficult to tell whether his cognitive disability is dementia or just stupidity. He was never very bright and has been a bumbling doofus for all his public life.
Wiseacre · F
No, but u can never be sure until postmortem brain exam.
