Also, when I signed the form that came back from the MEB it was for Chron's. After I did some research on codes and read the doctor's reports, I found that he talked about my needing medication to heal a fistula. Fistula has ratings of 100, 60 and 30. I think I would like to appeal the condition that is making me unfit. If I am going to be boarded, I want it to be for the right condition. Is this worth appealing or is the board going to look at it like I signed the initial paperwork and wont consider the other condition.
I have a fistula because of my IBS and the referred condition my doctor used is IBS. I should have most of my claimed conditions as referred conditions because they are from the IBS. I already signed my NARSUM and my doctor believes that all the conditions should be rated as 1 condition. Absolutely incorrect. Most of my disability rating comes from the fistula and by only putting IBS the most I can get DOD side is 30%. Quite dumb.
