Dear Marine0311, We can't do anything about your missing records.  At this point you should have a check by a physician who can assess and evaluate your current situation to see what is happening now, and how best to proceed.  Your history of exposure and risk will be noted and factored into the current assessment of your symptoms.

This has been going on for 13 years? I am just wondering why you are bringing this up now. Have you received  diagnostic impressions by physicians since, and/or any treatments or tests? Are matters getting worse, or do you think you may have breast cancer?

Your story sure sounds scary and I am wondering if your charts really got lost by accident? Did others who worked with you have the same symptoms?

lots of questions, Kat
