I am a US Army veteran I seperated from service in 2002 I didn't pay much attention to the VA before or right after I got out (my mistake) but now I have having aches and pains, slep apnea and a couple of other issues not bothering me. I have my first appointment with the VA next month followed by a sit down with a Doctor a week after. Can anyone tell me what to expect.

Thanks.

Welcome aboard realdeal. I see that you're Army. Same here, Army, 66-68. Hadit is ran by Navy,arrr.... It's a great crew. Someone will be around to tell you what to expect when you go to the VA. So, your 10%sc... Are your aches and pains, or the breathing issue related to your sc rating?... C B 92-93

Most vets don't want to get anywhere near a VA when they get out of service. It reminds them of all that hurry-up-and-wait stuff. In any event, use the VA for all their worth while you can. If I were you I would use them for the rest of my life just to document a picture of continuing treatment and disability. Just because you may feel OK now don't stop going to the VA at least twice a year for meds and physicals.

You never know what you have been exposed to in service, or when it will be found to be dangerous to your health, and will be made service connected like the Gulf War vets or Agent Orange.
