I submitted my claim on April 24th. Still nothing. Finally got a live person on the phone with no help. I have already had to go to the ER to get cut opena nd drain fluid on my spine. I have surgery scheduled for oct 19th to have multiple cyst removed from my spine (caused by traumatic injury while on active duty). I don't have insurance and when I talked to the VA and informed them of the situation, they told me once I had the surgery, to fill out paperwork for temp disability. The process is very confusing.
