Grettings. I'm getting out of the Marine Corps in about 2 months and I'm not sure what to expect for my cancer treatment.
I had a level 3 thick tumor on my leg that was removed with a wide local incision. A sentinal node biopsy was done (negative) and I was put on Chemo (Interfuron) for a year. I'm not considered in remission (I think it's 7 years of clear checks or something?)
I require at least 4 checups and 2 PET/CAT scans a year. I have a huge scar on my right calf with nerve damage and a smaller scar from the removal of the lymph node. How am I going to get my treatments taken care of and will I be elligible for VA compensation after my EAS in like 2 months? Any help from someone who had the same situation would be geatly appreciated.
