I'm currently about three weeks into my MEB up at JBLM right now for my right ankle pain and instability. Got hurt back in March of 2011 and turned down two surgeries after a LTC told me that the surgery would only stabilize and not reduce the pain with only about a 30% chance of success overall for the surgery itself. I get referred for an MEB. I've done 2 of my 3 VA appointments and have the last one in about two weeks or so. My question is, does the VA's appointment and findings over the actual reason I'm being boarded play any role in the PEB's finding of Fit or Unfit? Or does the PEB only go off of my medical records and what they have prior to all of this happening? My PEB is gone right now or I would ask her, any information would be greatly appreciated.
