Getting Old Sucks
« on: May 16, 2019, 12:24:51 AM »
My doctor retired.  He got older than me. He was a jerk, anyways.

The replacement doctor calls me in for a "meet and great"  ...  now I have to use a stick to collect smears of my poop for colorectal cancer tests.  She's concerned about my heart and blood pressure too so they are going to do blood tests.

I thought getting old was about being able to relax.

Before I die, I promise to comeback and flame all of you.

All that shit is normal after you hit fifty.  She'd prolly rather send you for a colonoscopy rather than the poop sticks, but you can probably hold her off for a few years.  I got my GP to wait until I hit 70 before I hadda do that scope.

My Doc in the states told me he takes 9 different blood pressure medications. He is neither over weight or a smoker. Seems over the top to me. I like my Doctor much better here. He’s a Cuban, and was educated there. Super practical and resourceful. Works out of a very small office.  He had to put 6 stitches in my head 5 months ago. I was a bloody mess. Charged me $90. A smallish humble person. Makes house calls if needed. The Med. system in the US seems fucked up.

The insurance industry is a big part of that.  Liability and malpractice insurance drives a lot of "medical" decisions.

Just to be clear,  I'm from Canada. 

Pooping on a stick costs me nothing! 

Then I just smear it and mail it.

Sadly, they only want the time and date I pooped  and there is no comment section.

Yet if you have a longtime family doctor in the states, they'll do procedures personally to save you from the time and cost of a hospital stay...

...but if they don't know your stock, straight referral...

That and regulations, and "patient satisfaction", and the ridiculous cost of pharmaceuticals that are criminal.  We need serious reform.

Sorry, that was me.   

I needed to pass some drug tests and put my trust in Jesus'  number one fan.

I forgot about drug tests. I guess if you test positive for heroin, see ya. What about weed? Especially because many states have legalized. Alcohol?
