    Unprovoked PE with lifelong anticoagulation recommended

    Also had multiple unprovoked DVT/PEs, on lifelong anticoagulation and need compression stockings. I was rated 60% by VA, Air Force concurred with rating. I was medically retired, for this and 5 or 6 other conditions found unfitting. I've heard DVT/PE can go either way if you put together a...

    PTSD was listed as "not combat related" during Navy MEB even with documentation.

    I had a similar situation. Had clear combat related documentation, and the PEB stated it was combat zone related. Though my DD214 states the narrative reason for separation was "IDES, Combat Related" and there are associated combat related codes listed. I've not yet applied for CRSC, but am...

    Charlie, Thank you for pointing that out, I originally misunderstood this timeframe. I've not yet contacted my Congressman. I was trying to get a feel of others opinion on doing so. I wasn't sure if I was wrong in my belief that we are well past reasonable. While I am familiar with others...

    Pulmonary Embolism requiring indefinite Anticoagulation

    Thankfully yes, but it was more of a Lady Luck & God Willing sort of thing. The process timeframes are what saw me through, but you will find others who were not as fortunate. My understanding is that medications like Apixiban/Riveroxiban are considered a bit safer these days. If i recall...

    Pulmonary Embolism requiring indefinite Anticoagulation

    Digging a bit deep, so may or may not be value added. I underwent two consecutive MEBs, first I endured unprovoked DVT wil bilateral PEs. The doctor allowed me a trial period to come off of the blood thinners, this helped keep me active duty. Second MEB due to other medical issues, though the...

    Excellent and very insightful follow-up information Ron. I will mentally factor that input as part of the rationale of my current reality I may (should) eventually be approved for CRSC myself, but figured I should just work with the facts on hand.

    2 Formulas for DoD Retirement pay

    Ron, Thanks for the reply. I'm glad to hear that that im at least partially correct. That said, I'm more than a little dense when it comes to math. So no sense in being ashamed to ask "explain it to me like I'm 5" I can't seem to wrap my mind around the "fuzzy" CRDP math concerning reductions...
