Army doc no show

August 14th, 2007 3 comments

I showed up to Hanscom Air Force Base at 7:50AM last week to meet with that Army doctor, only to find out “he didn’t show up for work.” I rescheduled for the 22nd, but found out today I might not even have to go. Turns out I need to go back to Newport Naval Hospital to determine whether I will return to full duty, continue treatment, or have a PEB (I think PEB has something to do with a medical board reviewing my case, though I am not familiar with this acronym). I called today to make the appointment but never heard back from them about how many weeks I’ll have to wait to be seen.

Some days I feel like I could walk fine, other days I can’t even bend my hip enough to put on a sock. Apparently things aren’t getting better on their own and I need some therapy advice. Hopefully I’ll go to Newport soon.

Trip to Newport Naval Hospital, part II

I had my 1 year review with Navy LtCmdr P. down in Newport this morning. He was excited to see how well I’m doing and is going to put me on a 6 month “limited duty” status. I now have a 6 month window to keep training and prove to the Marines that I’m fit to return to OCS and become an officer. At the end of the 6 months, my case will appear in front of a medical board in DC to determine if I should return to full duty or be permanently separated.
