radiation exposure due to malfunctiong x-ray machine

Over 30 years ago I had a massive over exposure to a malfunctioning x-ray machine at the County hospital, now, years later I am experiencing many unpleasant side effects.  Just had a kidney removed for renal cell carcinoma a month ago.

My symptoms are:

nausea
chills/tremors
low blood pressure
swollen ankles/fluid retention
dizziness
breathing difficulties

Could these symptoms return from the exposure 30 years later?

Hi
Thanks for writing to the forum!
Well I have not examined you, but personally I do not think your symptoms are due to radiation exposure that occurred 30 years ago. I am sorry to hear about renal carcinoma. Your present symptoms are probably due to some medication you are taking, or due to radiation you may be receiving for treatment or due to the cancer itself. Weakness, electrolyte or protein imbalance could also be contributing. Please go back to your cancer specialist and take his opinion.
It is difficult to comment beyond this at this stage. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!

Thank you for input on the medical aspect of radiation exposure, however, I have not had any type of cancer treament, for the renal cell carcinoma there was not radiation or chemo.  

The only other thing I did not mention is the symptoms ocurred on 2/4/09 after a laser iridotomy and have gotten progressively worse.  After the iridotomy I lost my balance and the nausea started....When I had the left eye done on 1/21/09, the did not have any of the above symptoms and felt O.K.

Any advise would be appreciated......

I do not have a cancer specialist, just a doctor that specializes in kidney problems.
