Thank you for the answers, trying to figure out why a soldier with a legacy injury from Op Telic (3 mortars hit him) would be sent on Op Herrick without the cortizone injections that are needed to function daily. He was sent by a civvi doc on the basis he got his injection on arrival at Bastion but the hospital does not offer this sort of treatment. Illegal deployment?? The situation is a long winded battle and yes I am an ex crab fat Army wife......scorned......hell hath no fury.
I was quite shocked when he said that too but its all being investigated, I just wanted to know the in's and out's medical wise so we had a leg to stand on. Bottom line Im trying to fight for what my husband needs and that is surgery, 6 years over due after being hit by 3 mortars trying to help another lad, why keep him back from one tour due to the same injury but send him on the recent one when said injury has worsened??? Just something not quite right. Anyhoo thanks all who have helped, off to read more JSP's and med stuffs.
