I joined the US Army in March of 2009. I went through meps and passed. I have always been a healthy athletic person. I trained before going to Fort Jackson for basic training. My husband is 11B and helped me prepare. Two weeks into basic my legs/ankles swelled up so big that I couldn't put on my boots. I had a bone scan and found that I had fractures in my right hip, both tibia plateus, and both heels. They sent me to PTRP where I was informed that I was healthy and in shape. The physical therapist for PTRP starting digging deeper into my medical history. At meps they asked if I was on birth control, but never asked what kind or how long. The physical therapist asked those questions. I was on the Depo Provera shot for the better part of a decade. He informed me that the army has done research and found that females joining the army who haven't been off of the shot for over a year tend to have bone problems. I got out in July of 2009 because my bones were not healing. They gave me a uncharicterized chapter 5-17 and told me I could go to the VA once home to get help. I did that. The VA denied my claim for service related injuries. I work over 40 hours a week and can barely walk. Where do I go from here. I take calcium, vitamins, and take it easy when I can. I am no longer the same person I use to be. I use to play volleyball once a week and run 4 days a week. It is depressing not to be able to be active anymore. Can anyone help me?
