    DOD Med Board

    @chaplaincharlie if I get a med board referral for my back, is my back the only unfitting condition I could have as far as DoD percentages or can the C&P find more to apply towards the DoD percentage?

    Need some help and advice (repost from “Army Forum”)

    Well, if you’re deciding surgery, I’d go down that road first. I’m no professional, but from what I understand, your condition needs to be “stable” before the Army releases you. I’m sure some others on here could do a much better job explaining this

    Need some help and advice (repost from “Army Forum”)

    Hey, welcome to the forum. At first glance, it looks like you you’d be a potential candidate, but no one here can accurately gauge your medical limitations through simple posts. I don’t know much about shoulder, but I’ve been through the gauntlet on back/spine injuries. Right off the bat, I’d...

    Looking to initiate an MEB due to depression and backpain

    Not sure if there’s a new development here, but I’m gearing up for a med board for back issues and depression. The disc bulging itself isn’t too uncommon in the Army, it took two discectomies on the same disc and significant disc height reduction before my PCM mentioned a possible med board. Of...

    Wow, that’s crazy fast and a little nerve racking at the same time. I’m still trying to figure out what to do when I grow up... Was there any reason why yours went so fast or was it just good timing?

    Holy smokes, that ended up moving pretty quick! Congrats if that’s what you were going for. I’m on Carson as well. Met with the PCM this week and he told me to wait a week to really think about whether or not to submit the referral to MEB. After talking to the wife exstensively, we’re kind of...

    Diagnosed PTSD After Service Effects

    Thanks for the reply. Can I ask why? Is it due to percentages or the actual diagnosis of anxiety post-military?

    Diagnosed PTSD After Service Effects

    A couple years ago, I quietly went to an Army Pyschologist before or after work, not telling a soul, including my wife, about a some war stuff I’d been dealing with for nearly a decade. I still see the doc in the same hush-hush capacity for continued treatment. The doc quickly diagnosed PTSD...

    Ft Carson timeline

    I have DDD all throughout my spine, had two discectomies on the L5-S1 and looking at a med board. I thought they only looked at ROM for percentages. Can you walk me on to where to read up on all this?
