In 2009 i was shot in Iraq in the head the bullet went threw my nasal cavity and out my cheek.I was treated at BAMC and they fixed me up. They put a prostitic eye in and a cheek implant in and sowed it up. i was good to go, so i retired and started the system with the VA, well the implant is rejecting its self from my face so i need a surgery to fix it. i went to my pcm at the VA she referred me to the Indy VA hospital(were i must add is a disgrace full place to treat a wounded soldier walk threw the place and you will know what i'm talking about oh and dont forget your gun because you might get mugged in that area) well i spoke to this doctor there who was qulified to do the surgery,or i tried to, he kept interrupting me because he has had such a long day (at 10am) then he stopped me once again to answer a phone call from his wife WHAT! i walked out of there and told him to piss-off (no matter how hard your urge is don't use the gun you brought for safety on the doctors there) fyi his name was DR .. so i drove all the way back home and told my pcm about the story witch she did nothing about not even refer me to another VA doctor who could do the surgery. i rather not drive all the way back there to deal with another doctor like that anyway but its the point.. so i took matters in my own hands i went threw 3 different doctors that could not do this type of surgery, i found one in chicago at the university that said he could do it and also the VA a has a contract with that hospital SCORE or so i thought the VA denied to help fund the operation, they told me its because i went to him with Tricare for the initial visit. does anyone know of a program that can persuade the VA to pay this doctor.. i am head over heals in tricare bills witch is a awesome insurance company but why am i even stuck with a co-pay , i didn't shoot my self , this was a insurgent that i killed to protect this country and in the cross fire he got me........ check out my photo my face is falling apart as i type this...so if there is any one out there please post some thing..
