Hi everyone,

A friend of mine told me about this forums so I decided to past and see if I can get some feedback. I recently had surgery in 5 months ago on my left hip. Since having the surgery, I havent felt the same. Continued pain and weakness in my hip and now leg and foot. I saw my PCM and she said she would put in a consult for a 2nd opinion to see a civilian off base. But she also mentioned that doing so would potentially generate a DAWG review. Is this true? Should I be afraid of requesting a 2nd opinion from another doc?

I havent PT tested due to this issue in a while so I guess technically I should've already had a review by now but havent. I personally would invite a MEB because it's getting to be too much with this pain.
