My package was sent to the VA January 3pth. I am referred out in town and the doctor is saying I need to get a 3rd surgery and FAST. it will be on my referred condition and I am being told I will not be allowed to have it because my package is already referred. I may have to wait to be processed out before I can move forward. Is there any truth to this? Anything I can do to get this surgery? The timeliness of this needs to happen asap.

Army here. I had surgery on my elbow right after my C&P exams. I had to have it approved by the "head doctor" at the IDES office on my installation.
