Well daylont if it makes you feel any better when I messed my knee up when in Germany the AF and Army Docs really screwed things up and it wasn't till I came back and got stationed in California, and finally went to Oak-knoll Naval hospital, did I finally get it fixed right. Back when I was in the Air Force, the Navy was known to have the best Doctors and medical facilities of all the branches of the service! But the thing that is bad for an active duty service member is you can't sue a military doctor for malpractice, no matter how bad they mess you up!! Something called the Farris Act protects them.
Do be careful, a soft cervical collar can be gotten at most drug stores, and they are cheap, usually come in small, med. or large. It might not be a bad idea to wear one when standing up or walking, to help stablize your neck. Heck your base clinic should be able to give you one! Please keep us posted!
Good Luck to You!
