Hello all, just need some insight. This Dec will be my 18.5 years active duty Navy. 3 years ago I was on LIMDU for a knee injury from a hyperextension during a fire drill on a ship. No formal investigation done, I just went into medical the next morning when it blew-up. X-rays/ MRI done got a Knee scope. After all was done and 2 PFA fails was told to just suck it up if I wanted to finish 20 yrs. This year (march) my knee gave on me and x-ray/ MRI showed my ligaments are really thinned out and and got a 2nd scope. ( also added Gout, High Blood Pressure, Kidny stone and diverticulitis to my list of defects). I was waived from this years last 2 PFAs but not Body fat. So failed BF is now 3. End of the PFA cycle is this Dec. and I will get pinged on 3 fails over a 4 year period. I was put in the MED process This Nov. and waiting on my commands ( I was moved to a shore command, On LIMDU again) Non-Medical Assesment. Last PFA instruction states gradfatherd in if 18 years was before 1 Jul 11 and with a retirement date approved. My 18 year mark was 28 Jun 2011, no approved retirement yet ( I can't put in till my 18 mo out date, this Dec, and can't put in now due to MEB) Is there a chance my command will wait for my MEB/PEB. And if thay do, can I drag it out longer to finish 20, and when I pass the next PRT ( doing the Bike ) will the Navy still have reason to ADSEP me if the outcome of my MEB is fit?
