    Navy Timeline | Spinal Fusion + PTSD

    It does..I appreciate sharing, still blows my mind that you get "only" 10% for the fusion, my ROM is virtually non existent. Have been going through physical therapy for seven months and I can not move my head to the left or right at all. They did do a EMG and found mild Carpal tunnel.

    MEB VS. Regular Retirement

    Just an update on my situation, I was placed on a permanent profile and with the help of my PCM worked around the limitations that would trigger a MEB at the time. I did drop my retirement packet and received my approved retirement date for 01 Sept. 2019 with 21 yrs of active service. I msut...

    MEB VS. Regular Retirement

    Thanks Jason...It is crazy to think about all this stuff, I had no plans to retire this year, was planning on next year and even though my CoC has not said anything about a MEB it is on my mind. I did not think and I am not familiar with the Reg. when the Provider is required to request a MEB...

    MEB VS. Regular Retirement

    Well, I believe that I should receive a rating of over 50%. I do have a diagnosis of Lsepp Apnea with a CPAP machine, as I said just had a cervical Spine fusion with another Fusion on my lower back later on this year. I guess I will tell my BH counselor next week to just go ahead and initate...

    MEB VS. Regular Retirement

    You know...it's BS that you served for 19 1/2 yrs and now looking at getting kicked to the curb, and on top of it make it look like they care when it comes down to save the Government money.

    MEB VS. Regular Retirement

    I appreciate your feedback battle...not sure what a Chapter 61 Retiree is, and I have heard about guys who got MEBed just before hitting that 20 yrs mark. So in a nut shell don't entertain a MEB, what happens if I drop my Retirement packet and while in the process of waiting for a approved...

    I apologize for the double post in a different Forum... I have a question in regards to regular Retirement vs. MEB, I had a C5 - C7 Decompression and Spinal Fusion last month and will also need a Fusion on L5-S1 after my recovery later on this year. I will hit my 20 yrs mark in September of this...

    Spine - My Timeline

    Just to add to my previous post, I am concerned that if my BH provider issues me the Profile for my PTSD before the MEB process begins and would be found fit for duty for my back that I might be founght unfit for the PTSD...if that makes sense. At the same time, leaving my mental condition out...

    Has anyone ever heard of this term from a BH Provider?

    I appreciate your input and figured that this term is not towards any condition. I'll see how it goes in the future and really just wondered if this was a common term and what to expect going forward with this.

    Has anyone ever heard of this term from a BH Provider?

    Good afternoon Forum, I would appreciate any input you may have after my last behavioral health appointment. A little about myself, I am a SFC (P) still AD Army and a little over a year away from my 20 year mark. I have been struggling with myself for quite some time and have been seen by BH...
