One of the things on the survey was "Any bone or joint problem, injuries, surgery or medical treatment" And I put yes because I have had shoulder joint problems as well as surgery to remove my tonsils. Then another question on the survey was "Had or been advised to have, operations?" And I put yes again because I have had surgery to remove my tonsils(as stated earlier in the survey). Then at the end of the survey, it asked me to explain in detail for all the things I put yes for. And there was a box to put the date each thing happened and the name and address of the doctor and a description of each thing. So for the question "Any bone or joint problem, injuries, surgery or medical treatment" here is what shows up on my form: "2014(shoulder) 2005(surgery) Shoulder: [Name of Doctor] [Address of doctor] Surgery: [Name of Doctor] [Address of doctor]; I was diagnosed with [ailment] on my shoulder and I was given exercises to do on my own to strengthen the muscles around my shoulder. The exercises were effective and my shoulder has completed healed. I was breathing through my mouth and my doctor removed my tonsils to help my condition. The treatment was effective and I now breath fine. My shoulder is completely healed. I have no difficulty breathing." That is how it shows up on the form and I am worried that it looks like I had shoulder surgery when that didn't happen. I had two conditions that fell under "Any bone or joint problem, injuries, surgery or medical treatment" so I described both of them and it smushed the descriptions together and made it very difficult to understand(when I typed the descriptions in it was difficult to understand because each section of the description was in a separate box, I wasn't aware it would smush the descriptions together like that). I had my physical exam today and the doctor couldn't understand what it was saying so I had to explain it to her and she made note of what I said in the write-up. The question "Any bone or joint problem, injuries, surgery or medical treatment" was worded very poorly in my opinion. It is difficult to tell if the question is asking if one has had any bone or joint surgery, or if one has had any surgery period. I thought it meant the latter and looking back I think it meant the former. I'm a bit worried that the people at DoDMERB will misunderstand what I have and will think that I had surgery on my shoulder when that isn't what happened. Is this a legitimate concern? Is there anything I can do to fix it?
