Hello, my name is***** am a solicitor on this site and it is my pleasure to assist you with your question today. The issue you will have here is that any claim for personal injury would have t be brought in within 3 years of the date the injury was suffered. If this was something which only became obvious with time, then it would be from the point of diagnosis. If you have had operations as far back as 2000 then any diagnosis would have been made then and at best it is when the time limit would have started to run from. As you can see, you are way beyond the 3-year limit within which you must have submitted a claim so even if there is fault the part of the Army, you are legally out of time to make a claim. There is nothing stopping you from approaching them and stating your case, asking for compensation but if they refuse, then you are stuck as you cannot legally make a claim against them at this stage.
I'm sorry if this is not necessarily the answer you were hoping for, however I do have a duty to be honest and explain the law as it actually stands. This does mean delivering bad news from time to time. I hope you understand and would be happy to provide any further clarification if needed.
