Thanks to the incredible generosity of Bupa, the fear that has haunted me ever since finding out what a prostate exam entails, is about to become a reality! For those that don’t know about my charitable 90mile trek, where have you been :), Bupa have previously provided us with some top tips to get in shape and protect ourselves. They’ve clearly seen that I’m in no fit state to be doing the trek and have invited me down for the morning to have a full over assessment. The part of this Health Peak assessment I’m focusing on right now is the prostate exam bit! The thought of this is making me agitated because: a) I may have prostate cancer and find out probably while filming b) Internally, I’m allergic to latex haha OMG I hope they wear gloves, OMG what if it’s a woman! You can see the dilemma that I’m putting myself through. I only imagined this would happen at a later stage when I was so senile that I didn’t even know my own name and would happily let someone else wipe my backside after leisurely tarmacking the care home bathroom. Unfortunately I’m compos mentis, we’ll sort of if you ask my friends. This is going to be a rough, but smooth I hope ride!
I’ll let you decide wether I should Facebook Live this session 🙂 Here’s what’s going to be featured: https://www.bupa.co.uk/health/health-assessments/health-peakI am honestly so grateful and will be booking in shortly. It’s great timing too to raise awareness of prostate cancer, a charity which Syd is supporting on our Walk and something which affects 1 in 8 men.
