Thank you for asking for me. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking.
As far as staying around with your disability to complete your remaining 2 years, only your command can agree to provide you such a position if they have one available as you know. You are going to have to present your civilian medical reports to the military physician and get approval from them as well to stay in or to initiate the paperwork, as we previously discussed, to get a medical discharge. If you can get the civilian doctor to attribute the medical problems to service in the military, you can receive a service connected disability which would entitle you to military disability benefits
As far as the time it would take to process either a medical discharge or disability discharge, that depends on the cooperation of the military medical staff and their acceptance of the civilian doctor reports regarding your disability, since they can force you to remain in and have surgery to finish your commitment if they find the surgery will cure your medical issue.
If you get a disability discharge you would be entitled to all of the benefits and also a disability pension benefit depending on the percentage of your disability rating. The process can take up to 12 months or sometimes more, but there is no way to predict with more accuracy because of the cooperation of the medical personnel and running the paperwork through your command.
