Is it ok for me to request a full blown checkup from my doc? Including blood tests, xray, etc? Just to make sure im good? Or do you recommend not?

In brief: Discuss your concern

The best checkup is one guided by targeted examination and labs as needed to rule out issues of concern.
There is no exam, test , or series of tests that can give you a 50yr/5yr/ or 5 mo guarantee for all issues that may cause trouble.A thourough history & physical + appropriate tests for your age and concerns can certainly help. Discus with your dr.
