Thanks for the additional information. You mention "sent claim "tha"(?) appeal to claim". Can I presume that you filed a claim versus the U.S. under the Federal Tort Claims Statute, and that it was denied? If that is the case, how long ago did that occur?

I neglected to ask whether you were in the military or were a civilian employee at the time you were treated at the military facility. Also, have you ever been told that the statute of limitations had expired on your claim?
