PO2- 6yrs

April 2015- diagnosed Stage 3 Abdominal Cancer
April 2016- Officially cancer free but nerve damage from treatment
July 2016- will complete 2nd Limdu status and be put up for MEB

Nerve damage to hands- i either have no feeling in hands, or a lot of pain.

Nerve damage to legs and feet- pain from knees down, can't feel my feet or a lot of pain. can't even drive a car.

I love the navy but I'm not able to work to earn my paycheck, Navy shipmates helping out but not worth them missing work to help me, I think its better for me to get medical retirement and go live close to family and try to get back on my feet and go back to school if i can manage with my hands. Any information would be greatly appreciated. I feel like i am just going to sit around for another year wasting my time and the navy's time and money.
