Don't ignore the symptoms

Hi all, have been off the scene for a while, basically angina and surgery. Thankfully, mending well. Gives you time to think.
First noted signs in November - but - typical man - exuses.
Lot going on, let's get Christmas out of the way, then I will see a doctor. Man attitude - we don't like or see need to go doctors. We expect pains and problems as we get older. We can put up with it. Don't want a fuss, I can work through it, etc.
Well, it came to a head and I had to do something about it. Now, my quality of life has massively improved.
There is loads of health education out there concerning the things that we might expect - heart, prostate, diabetes etc.
Many of you will be more sensible than me, but my message for those hesitating is don't ignore the symptoms. Get yourself checked out. You will be glad you did.
Sorry if I sound like a preacher, but if it helps one of you guys reading this to bite the bullet, then it will be great.
Best wishes to all - have a great Aviation year, and more importantly - good health in 2020.

Yes wise words Peter.
Too many men think they are captain Scarlet, and indestructible. Stick their heads in the sand, and ignore the signs of heart and cancer symptoms. Check ourselves and stay well, even more so with this virus. Follow the advise by the government and stay well. :thumb:

Stay well Peter
