Hi all. I'm new to this site but have been viewing for quite a while and have been grateful to see their are many knowledgeable people on here. Here is my query: I am currently MND Temp and at my list visit to my MO I was informed once I had my hip op I would be made MND Perm. Is this the case? Surely the recovery period should be taken into account to see whether the op has worked. My further concern is that if I am made MND Perm the possible PAP 10 action that could happen. I have been suffering hip problems for three years and although I have just had an op on one hip the other is likely to have to be done in the near future. In the current climate of cutting army strength I feel I may be the next in line. I am due in for med review soon. Hope you can help.
