Does anyone have any of these issues that was DOD unfitting? If so what was your ratings? I'm in WTB for the hip tear and haven't started my MED board yet!

what type of bunionectomy did you have? i have had 2 types...bunionectomy(20yrs ago-both feet) to where they just shave down the bump and the lapidus bunionectomy(last year-both feet) to where they break joints and straighten the joints. neither are 'unfitting', unless they absolutely keep you from performing your duties. They can be rated by the VA. The other conditions, i have no experience with.

I'm going to have one where he just shifts the bone over and put screws in, he said he didn't need to shave any bone. But we will see its on Tuesday when. I actually have it.

Ok. Good luck with the recovery . It’s pretty rough. Keep up on your Percocet or Vicodin during week 1.
