Every so often I’ll get a sheet in the mail with the ad that tells of body scans being held at the local Hilton or some such hotel. I hope that Quagdop will see this!
My father @71 just had a quintuple bypass. No heart attack, was just feeling funky, went to the doctor and it’s like “geez, we gotta do this NOW”. I now know that my father’s side of the family is rife with heart disease.
I have decent BP readings, don’t think my cholesterol is excessive, but I’m almost 40, female and I smoke.
Are these sort of tests beneficial for me? They have all kinds now…geez, I don’t think I want the cancer screens, mainly because they don’t look at the lungs, but I’m considering the echocardiogram and maybe a carotid ultrasound.
Has anyone here experienced any of these tests? Are they real? I’d love to hear about your body scans!
