Everything you mentioned is warranted in the recommended tests. Your family and personal histories had nothing to do really with the colonoscopy
either. All men over or near age 50 should have one every few years or so...even with no symptoms. Its to detect EARLY warning signs of disease and
You have Ortho issues, so the bone density and P.T. therapies and diagnostics are also warranted to better treat you in the future with what you
acknowledge are the reasons you are even going to the doc..
You say you don't have this, and don't need that...but everyone...EVERYONE...in the beginning stages of disease had to be diagnosed 1st...and were
sure nothing was wrong, had no history etc, etc.
Many, many of those who refused either preventative testing or maintenance...especially after its you who went to the doctors....are dead now.
And, I agree with your thread title. With a pre-existing ortho condition, and refusing tests to assist the medical profession to treat and diagnose
conditions and suspicions early to keep you well as can be....you may very well have "had it".
