Hello i need some help! I have been out of the Air Force for 5 years and 1 1/4 years ago found out i had Ovarian Cancer stage IIIc. I was 32 yo when they found it after complaining for years of pain while i was in and at the VA.
I had every symptom you could think of but no one even checked till i could hardly walk.
I KNOW in my heart that I have had this since i was in. Has anyone else heard of JP8 or jet fuel causing anything like this or had it. That is what i did for a job so i was around it all the time.
This is a stupid ? but how long does it take for a cancer to spread and grow? or is there anyway to find out.
I have so many ? and no where to go to ask no one will even talk to me about it like it is all hush hush. MY Dr will not ever return my calls and has no time to talk to me when i am there, just changes the subject.
last time i was at the VA the nurse told me she had another girl a little younger them me that had the same thing happen to her but of course i do not know who she is.
Thanks for reading.
