Thank you all for your replies and opinions.
As for myself, I like to know all about my current health status - it's just how I am. I'm not saying everyone should follow my example.
I've just been looking through the current issue of Heart Matters. On page 8 it talks about health literacy, the ability to find health information and act on it. A study in 2015 found that more than 2 in 5 people in England aren't health literate. Right, I'm not entirely sure what they are getting at here, as I definitely do not understand medical speak. Looking through my urology notes, there's a lot of bumpf there that I've got no clue what it says. It's been a year since I saw my urologist. Recently, I asked my GP for a report on my latest report on my recent diabetic MOT results; again not a damn clue what it means, but I'd like to find out. I'll speak to my diabetic nurse as soon as.
On Wednesday, my wife and I go to see the specialist, to get the result of my 2nd PSA blood test. I'm trusting for a decent result, as I don't feel too bad - I just get damn tired a lot, and on a daily basis.
Last Friday I registered at our local Leisure Centre for the heart rehabilitation course, run by the British Heart Foundation - I also have heart disease. I'm hoping this will kick start some motivation in my being able to regain a bit of fitness.
My current health status is, I'm not really sure where I'm at. I know my heart disease makes its presence felt, I get episodes of my thumping heart, especially after going up then down the stairs. My cancer reminds me it's there when I experience the side effects of Prostap. So on occasion, I may feel down because of 1 of the problems or it be a combination of the 2. And now winter is around the corner - damn!!
