23 AUG 11 Was referred to MEB after my profile was elevated from P2 to P3. Profile is for Degenerative Joint Disease Lumbar Spine with Herniation L5-S1. 06 SEP 11 PEBLO contacted me from Fort Gordon, I am in Mississippi (9 hours away). My MEB will be processed through Gordon, guess I get some TDY. Talked over process and mailed me forms to complete and send back. 12 SEP 11 Filled out and faxed forms back to PEBLO. 27 SEP 11 Contacted by VA MSC at Fort Gordon. She requested I copy my medical records as she said the one given to her was less than 20 pages. Gave her my laundry list of "problems": DJD Lumbar Spine with Herniation L5-S1 Ulnar Nerve Impingement (Surgery pending early October) PTSD Acid Reflux Memory Loss/ Concentration Problems Sleep Disturbances (Waiting on referral for sleep study) Bilateral Heel Pain Tinitus/ Ringing in ears Mild hearing loss Bilateral Knee Pain Bilateral Shoulder Pain Thats where I sit, will keep you posted on the length of this process. I have a feeling I'll do "OK" with disability. Keep the faith guys.
