Men and Doctors

I do not know if it has ever been scientifically proven, but it seems that men go to their doctor much less consistently than women.

Grandpa Richard is no exception. I am not sure, but I think my last complete physical was about 5 years ago. Considering that men over 50 should be doing that at least every 2 years … naughty Grandpa Richard.

Well, I finally pushed all procrastination aside and went yesterday. The doctor asked a variety of general questions, listened to my breathing and heart, took blood pressure, gave me a tetanus booster, and scheduled me for a battery of tests.

I will report on the results later.
