Now that the major trauma seems to be well on its' way to being resolved it was time to take the body to the shop for some diagnostics. Went in to the lab a couple days ago for the specimen collection so the doc would have everything at hand for the meeting today.
He almost seemed disappointed when he told me he couldn't put me on any prescription medications. "Everyone your age is on at least one prescription medication, not counting eye drops" he said. Compared to what they were before this trauma evolution some are a bit out of whack, for me, but still well within normal. Glad something is normal, eh?
Then came the sobering comment. He told me this is my last prostate exam. No more PSA. No finger wave this time or ever again. I'm too old for that. They figure that the odds are at my age I will die with prostate cancer not of it.
Similar with the colonoscopy. I get one more because of family history. Without that I'm so old, in their view, there is no point in the screening.
