parsing ParamCommandComment and getting trailing newline and * for next ParamCommandComment

While going through the child comments of a fullcomment, specifically the ParamCommandComment, when I try to get the description of the param, I’m getting the trailing newline and * for the next line

/**

  • This is some function
  • @param some_param this is what it does
  • @param some_other_param …
    */

I just want to get “this is what it does” but I end up with

this is what it does
