Thread: Too many choices

    Too many choices

    Well, y’gotta laugh!

    This morning, in the post, I received:

    1. A letter from my GP reminding me to have my annual PSA blood test.
    2. A bowel cancer screening kit.

    You never know, I might live long enough with MND to die of something else!

    Now there’s a thought……

    Hi Doug,

    When I was chatting to my GP about MND stuff I said to him "at least I know what I will from" to which he replied (after having hearty Irish laugh)...." don't be so sure - other forms of death are still available"

    Certainly made me smile.

    Regards

    Chas

    I like your sense of humour Doug and Chas!
    Interesting that although we have MND, we still get invited by the NHS for cancer screening. I take it that if someone with MND was also diagnosed with cancer, they would still be eligible for treatment such as radiotherapy or chemotherapy -otherwise why would NHS offer them cancer screening in the first place?
    (Just one of my random thoughts)

    Being diagnosed with Mnd does make you worry less about getting cancer and other things

    I agree Terry.

    As the saying goes ... 'What will be, will be'.

    I have had enough of medical tests/examinations for one lifetime and now I even swerve going to the dentists (sorry Mr Dentist - no more money from me!).
