What age would you say no to medical treatment

What age would you call it a day at and stop medical treatment?
Or would you want to live as long as possible?

For myself or for others?

Not really an age thing - for me it would be whenever it was hopeless.

Age doesn't come into it, its how healthy and mobile you would otherwise be if you took the medical treatment, also what you want to do with your life, I have a very sedentary sister, as long as she could eat and watch reality TV she would want to continue living, me? No!

Why would I be asking you to give advice on when someone else should stop any medical treatment :lol:
Yourself.

I want to live long enough to finish the house. Then I can enjoy retirement, whatever that is. :roll:

Not sure I would ever say no to medical treatment for pain relief whatever age I reach.

Me too. I suffer pain every day but it's not time to give up yet.

You had the Irish guy today who died who had been on Father Ted, not that I watched it.
Diagnosed with cancer last week refused treatment and has now died.
That's what I was trying to put across but due to educational difficulties it does not always come out right even though its right in the head. :P
He was not interested in chemo.
