I try to put off my yearly physicals by at least a year ... making them bi-yearly ?? But, the last time I went to the dentist I was denied ... because my blood pressure was too high. Part of that was because I WAS at the dentist, but mostly because I had stopped taking my blood pressure medicine. My favorite doctor had left our practice (she had small kids, so works now in an Urgent Care twice a week) so I didn't want to go through with meeting a new doctor, so I didn't bother.
Anyway, got new scripts for bloodwork, and my meds, and she thought she'd convinced me to get a mammogram (she printed it out.... doubtful I'll go) and I flatly refused a colonoscopy. But, it's a starting point. Maybe as I get healthier again, I'll consider doing the mammogram, but the colonoscopy will probably remain a no. She did say there is a new company that tests your bowel movements (you send them a sample through the mail....) I may consider that, in another 5 years LOL
