    MEB help

    You can always write up a memorandum and have it signed by your supervision or even better your commander if he is in the loop of your medical conditions. Almost like a p.t. waiver but more personal for you. My NARSUM was fairly quick, but my MEB was pretty much going to happen after my 5th knee...

    MEB help

    For your NARSUM, that should be able to be completed within a week, maybe less. It kind of depends how busy your base is and how many other individuals your PCM is seeing. Your new PCM should be able to review all previous notes put in by any previous PCMs and write a new NARSUM if need be. My...

    who to contact?

    RonG, Yes I do have a PEBLO and he has been a great help. I guess I am just overly worried about my ratings outcome and also being in an overseas location there aren't any local orgs to help. everything has to be done over e-mail. I prefer face-to-face transactions during this process. Thank...

    who to contact?

    Who are good sources to contact to help you through the IPEB process. Who can I contact to help me review my C&P exams and figure if there is somewhere that might deserve a higher rating or can help me with the process of rebutting my initial percentages?

    Overseas MEB? Help please

    I am also stationed in Japan and currently going through an MEB. I had multiple outpatient procedures done in Hawaii, but my MEB was ultimately started back in Japan. My next step is going to California for my C&P exams.

    VA Form 21-526EZ

    I just received my VA Form 21-526EZ. The only thing I'm curious about is that the Bilateral ankle, right hip pain, and right knee pain are secondary to my primary issue which is Chronic left knee pain and instability. Shouldn't it say something like that on the form so they are counted together...

    When should i seek counsel

    So at my current point in the MEB process, my case has been accepted and a package has been submitted including my NARSUM, Commanders impact letter and VA Form 21-526EZ. I was told the next step is waiting for a meeting with my VA representative to go over my records. My PEBLO told me not to...

    Hey everyone, a little background for me so far. I have had 5 knee surgeries. 4 ACL replacements and 1 debrievement. 1 Meniscus transplant and 1 root repair. This equals to 5 total knee surgeries. I was put on an MEB but was ultimately taken off because I was in the process of getting my next...

    Full left knee replacement

    If you receive a TKR( Total Knee Replacement) depending on your job you will probably be put in for an MEB. If you work in a career field where there are a lot of impact activities then you will surely go through an MEB. If you work something more like a desk job they may try and retain you...

    So I have been reading a lot of Disability review board outcomes on Air Force Boards website and have noticed something. I have seen a lot of individuals who have rating changed for bilateral knee pain from 10% to left knee 10% and right knee 10% which would come out to a total of 20%. But if...

    And so it starts....again

    Well I guess I should have updated this when I found out. I received a call 2 weeks ago from my Peblo office and was told my name was taken off the MEB list because I did not have enough recovery time after surgery. Also on a sidenote I was finally referred off base for pain management. They did...

    Okinawa OIDES

    I am actually going through an MEB in Okinawa as well, but I'm Air Force. From what I gather if you are found unfit, then they send you through the Physical evaluation board to get your percentages. For me they would send me TDY to California to a VA hospital. So I am currently waiting for my...

    And so it starts....again

    YES Chaplaincharlie, that is what I was looking for. Thank you for your input. Yes edcny your DOD percentage is based off of your referred condition, in my case will be my knee. But if you have issues steming from that referred condition, i.e. I walk with a limp because of my referred condition...

    And so it starts....again

    So I just found out I will be going through an MEB, for real this time. The last one was cancelled because my case was accepted and I had my 4th and 5th knee surgery. I am only about 2 months post op from my 5th surgery and was told an MEB was started. I've been looking into information on...

    I was talking with one of my supervisors yesterday and he asked me how my MEB was going. I said what MEB, I Just had Surgery 2 months ago. I thought you had 12 months from the time of surgery for recover before they are able to put you in for an MEB? Am I wrong?

    That is much appreciated. I'm just trying to figure out how they differ painful scars from numb scars.
