    Bref,

    Lower back conditions are rated according to range of motion (how far you can bend over) or incapacitating episodes (how long you are prescribed bed rest over a 12 month period). If you received a 10% evaluation for your lower back, then that means you either had forward flexion of 60 to 85 degrees or you were prescribed bed rest of at least one week but less than two weeks during the last twelve months.

    bref:

    Aren't you still on active duty? Isn't your MEB next month? Have you actually been awarded compensation or are you speculating?

    If you are looking for a medical answer, talk to your doctor. If you're talking about your career, it will depend on the results of your meb/peb

    Be careful what you wish for. I too had horrible back pain for many years. I had discs replaced while on active duty. It completely took the pain away (eventually) but it also ended my military career.
