I'm soon going to be 79, I feel pretty good and creatively productive. I have my first 6 month vist coming up. If things don't look so good I don't want to know about it, even thought about cancelling appointment. If I started having symptoms I might feel different, or I might not take any treatment.
I went to my GP over 6 months ago, he ordered a blood test and I was told I had CLL, I wish I never had the test, if something doesn't feel quite right, "is it age, is it nothing, is it CLL?". I don't want to spend my time dealing with doctors and the medical profession.
Thirteen years ago my beautiful iwife died from Breast Cancer at the age of 48, from a little lump under her arm, her prognosis looked really good, 80% she'd be fine, she/we did everything the doctors advised, now she's dead! Maybe that's why I feel like I do.
