Organized by: George LaPierre
I am ab100% Marine veteran. Two years ago I got a pain shot in my right Legg. The next day my knee swelled up. I had a knee replacement two Years Pryor by the Dorn VA Hospital in Columbus ia SC. I went to the VA hospital to co.plain about my left knee swelling up. They took blood and an Xbox ray and sent.me home and was told to.return on the following Tuesday. The next morning I was was rushed to the Lexington medical. The removed my knee because it was toxic with steffacocos blood poison that I contracted from the shot that they gave me on Thursday. My knee was removed and concreate was put in my Legg I was placed in extended care until all the blood poison was gone. During this time the VA refused to pay my doctor bills. After calling congressmen Joe Willson. The VA decided to pay for the removal of the knee and to replace the knee but will.not pay for the 3 months of extended care. Medicare paid all but 2,800.00. I have an appeal pending for 2 years. Still waiting on them. But the hospital is going to take.me to court. I need this $2,800.00 so they won't rake me to court.
