I WAS DIAGNOSED IN THE MID 60"s WITH LEGG PERTHES,I ENURED 2 SPICA BODY CASTS AND 4 YEARS GETTING AROUND IN AN ABDUCTION BRACE. THE PEDIATRIC ORTHO DOCTORS GOT ME CONNECTED WITH AL-KALY SHRINERS WHO SPONSERED ME TO SALT LAKE FOR EXAMINATION. THE OFFER WAS MADE TO REPLACE THE RIGHT HIP AT AGE 11. MY PARENS AND I WERE NOT HAPPY WITH THE SUVIVAL/SUCCESS RATIO AND WE DECLINED THE OFFER.
AS I APPROACHED ADULT AGE I WAS FACED WITH THE DRAFT TO VIET NAM AND SO I ENLISTED IN STED OF DRAFTING. I WAS ABLE TO HID MY CONDITION TO THE U.S.A.F BECAUSE I WAS A PHARMACY TECHNICIAN AND WOULDN'E SEE COMBAT'
IN THE 60's THROUGH THE 90's BEING DISABLED WAS NOT AN OPTION TODAY IT'S MY ONLY OPTION
.
MY QUERY TO THIS COMMUNITY IS HOW DO I GET THE M.R.I. I NEED FOR SOCIAL SECURITY AND HOW,IF POSSIBLE CAN I RECOVER ANY LOST/DESTROYED RECORDS FROM THE HOPITALS AND DOCTORS?

I LIVE DAILY IN EXTEREME PAIN AND IMOBILTY,THIS MAKES ME UN-EMPLOYABLE AND I AM HOMELESS AND INDEGENT AND FILING FOR AID TO THE NEEDY AND DISABLED,AND CURRENTLY FILLING FOR S.S.D.I.

PLEASE FOR GODS' SAKE PLEASE HELP ME
