Re: possible exposure at home
My father passed away of Meso. in July 08. He worked several different places where he could or was exposed to it...however, everything that I have learned about this horrible disease is that it only takes a minimal amount of exposure, not years of workplace contact..asbestos is asbestos. It takes 20-50 years to show up and not everyone that is exposed to it will contract it. I can't tell you not to worry, but if you feel better about doing something, the only thing to do is continue to get checkups. If you have trouble breathing or start having other symptoms that dont seem to go away, I would mention it to your doctor. It sounds as if you are fine right now, but I dont know how long ago you were exposed....Keep your head up. Dont worry about things you cant change and worry about it only if/when it happens, enjoy your life to the fullest today. God Bless you.
