Yes: A yearly checkup with labs and mammogram would be indicated. Fall flu shot. Pap and pelvic every 2 years or so. Labs would include Complete blood count, Chem Profile that checks liver and kidney function, Lipid Profile to see about cholesterol, Tsh and free T4 to check metabolism. Perhaps EKG and Chest X-ray if you are really into the full workup. Most covered by insurance once a year
