I kind of feel bad for even considering it because there are those far worse off than myself and honestly I dont even tell people I was in the military because I was only active duty for 6 weeks. But when I went to OCS I wrecked my knee. It was bending and making noises in ways it shouldn't have and I was denied sick call for a while and had to push through a 4 mile run on what sounded like a garbage disposal. They let me go to sick call on Monday. This happened on a Friday, iirc. I stayed off of it a few days and pushed through the last week (which was pretty easy PT... and I had motrin). This was 3 years ago. I started running again and a week or two into my regimen my knee is having the same medial pain and popping around all funky. I mentioned it to my dad and he told me to get it checked out and talk to the VA if it's a meniscus tear as they generally never heal. What is the process? Should I even bother?
