    While I was filling out my medical history on the DoDMERB website, it asked for the dates of broken bones and my last eczema treatment. I have since moved, and it has been such a long time since these treatments that the records do not exist anymore, according to those doctors. What do I do?

    I've never heard of doctors getting rid of medical records, at the very least they archive them. If you can't get ahold of them just estimate, if you think you were 10 years old then put whatever year that was and guess a month in the season. Ask your parents, they may have a good guess. You can put approximately on the form, I had to do the same thing.

    You could also contact the hospital where you got your bones set.

    Plus, your current doctor should have done what is called an intake form with your medical history the first time you went to see them. It is most likely in their notes from your first visit.

    You need to find those records because IF they give you a remedial they will want you to send in your doctors records.
