First thing I would do is to call DoDMERB as soon as possible. Let them know what happened. If you are currently medically qualified they will change your status to remedial requested, and they will request copies of all medical records concerning the dislocated knee. If the scope comes up negative, then as soon as you are released to full activities by your physician then DoDMERB will put you back into a qualified status.
If there is a small tear in either the MCL or LCL and its repaired, again, once you are released to full activities you will be found medically qualified. If its an ACL or PCL tear, even minor, then it will be a disqualification. It’s too early to start worrying about that.
So make sure you call DoDMERB, and even though your medical status will change, there will be no change to your admissions package. I would wait until your physician has released you to full activities before sending in the medical records, but ensure that when you do send them in you include all the medical records, including the operative report and physical therapy records.
The number for DoDMERB is 719-333-3562, at the first menu select option #1, and at the second menu select option #3 for the Sea Services. Their hours are 6:30 - 3:30 MST, M - F.
