Will I be able to enter the USA?

I'm a British citizen planning to travel to the USA soon. Last time I left the USA, my green I-94W visa waiver card wasn't removed from my passport. That was in 2002. I threw it away maybe 5 years later, thinking it was silly to keep it. I have since found that the US likes to cancel them anyway
. I've have got an ESTA
preclearance, which I assume looks up as much information as the immigration officers would have to hand at the airport.

I am aware that I can also file a request
with the DHS to get them to attempt to sort it, but I don't have conclusive documentation of my return to the UK (I was out of work at the time, lolling around for a long summer until I was admitted to hospital), so my worry is that filing any paperwork will do more harm than good. If anyone does have any stories of being denied entry to the US for these purposes or having entered with similar paperwork issues, then that'd be great.
