I had a penile implant in Sep of last year at the VA in San Francisco, CA. The implant was put in wrong, got infected and had to be removed 6 Wks later. The scar tissue was so massive that I cannot have sexual relations ever again.

I am sorry for this dilemma...but I do not see a question. Do you have questions regarding this?

My question is, can you be of help in this situation?
Military Lawyer: P. Simmons, Military Lawyer replied 2 years ago

I have plenty of experience with VA claims as well as the FTCA (federal tort claims act).

I can not represent you. But happy to chat about the process and what you need to do to preserve/prosecute a FTCA claim.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
