I had hip impingement surgery done November 2017 and currently on con leave until my DOS of February 24, 2018. I asked my PCM about MEB in December 2017. I am being denied based off the time I have left. The pcm doesn’t want to put me in for med hold. They are kind of kicking me to curb and the thing is I’m my hip is still injured and i have to get surgery on other hip. I was told today my code was 31 and I needed 37. How true is this? And I am coded this based off an opinion. No one has contacted my off base surgeon yet. I am permanently disabled due to the fact i will have hip replacements in near future. What do I need to do to appeal this? And is there a way to expedite the process before my dos?
