Reagan’s Health Good, His Doctors Say After Checkup

From a Times Staff Writer

Doctors at Bethesda Naval Medical Center gave President Reagan another clean bill of health Friday after the President underwent his second checkup since having major cancer surgery last summer.

A brief written statement released by the White House said: “The results of all tests were normal.”

Two feet of Reagan’s lower intestine were removed on July 13 after doctors discovered a cancerous tumor in his colon. The White House described the follow-up examination as routine and said it included an external abdominal examination, X-rays and blood and stool tests.

Reagan stopped at the medical center on his way to Camp David, Md., the presidential retreat, for the weekend.
