Over 50? GET THOSE PHYSICALS

Discussion in 'The Lounge' started by crappiedude, Nov 6, 2007.

  1. What started as a routine physical is turning into a triple by-pass anD a heart (mitral) valve repair/replace. I'm 55, quit smoking in '93, at most 10 lbs over weight and eat relatively low/reduced fat diet. Ya' just never know. I have to see a surgeon on the 19th and I guess he'll schedule me then.

    At first I was a little bumbed, but it beats the little woman from finding out in an autopsy report.;) Well deer season is over just as it's getting good but maybe I can get on the water a time or two before the big day. I guess I have 6-8 weeks recovery, so maybe I can get out the last couple of weeks of the season, or maybe there'll be some safe ice by then.

    Anyway if YOU"RE OVER 50, get those check-ups it may SAVE YOUR LIFE.
