Going to have even less time to wheel

So as it turns out when I got back from Afghanistan the dentist I saw lied to me and I have very severely impacted wisdom teeth so the 18th I go to a civ dentist to get all 4 surgically removed. Joy. So that takes up at least one weekend. Really pissed today because I got screwed twice medically today by the army.

First off, thank you for your service. Second, sorry about the teeth, and last enjoy the pain pills!

They are going to do all four at one time? Man, you won't be able to ingest anything but liquids for days. And I hope they give you some really good pain meds cuz' you're going to need them...

Jeepers thanks for your support.

Ed yes they have to do all 4 at once because on the short amount of time I have left in. And from what I've been told army meds are not that good. And even though I'm going to a civilian doctor I still have to use the army pharmacy. At least I'll lose some weight lol

Well, maybe they'll give you lots, quantity versus quality, you know?

I had all four of mine yanked in bootcamp. I was awake and it sucked balls. Good luck to you

Bc I was a stubborn NCO and didn't take care of it resulted in 4 surgeries while in the army and 1 this past may. Oh plus i know about ied's and combatives as well. Good luck and stay safe

Since you are getting out it is time to start taking care of you. Make sure you go see the American legion rep at the va to start your claim. Claim everything that you have gone to the doc for in the army but while still in go to the doc for anything. I made that mistake i was getting migraines while in never went and saw the doc and now I am having a hard time claiming it.

Are you doing a standard ETS or getting out on medical? Dec 30, 2011 was my last day. I received a severance pay in the amount of $44k after taxes (so much based on a rank of CW2 and 12 years of service) because I was involuntarily separated under the Reduction in Forces. I just got my VA disability rating a week and a half ago, 70% disabled at $1,433/ month which includes a $99/month loss of use of a body member payment. The kick in the junk was they followed that with I have to pay back every penny of the severance money before I get a disability check. So I won't see a disability payment for 2 more years from this month despite the two pays being completely different.

Long in short, if you get out under medical and are receiving a lump sum, just beware you will pay it back as required by Federal Statute. Just one more way they get you.

Yes reg ets my pa asked me if I wanted to go through a med board, one of my buddies went through one after we got back from Afghanistan and took him 6 months and since I'd get out sooner with my terminal leave I decide against it and just rode it out, the shit I got for being on a perm profile sucked but I won't have to pay shit back so it was worth it in my eyes
