Found this on the net. Really good info on the disease.

I thought I would share some information for military people who may have acromegaly. I had brain surgery in November using the endoscopic method. Everything came out fine and the VA paid for everything and did a great job with all the supporting tests before surgery. After surgery, great too as I am now on lanreotide (somatuline depot injections). Medically speaking everything is great and the system works just fine. On the other side of the fence however, my VA claim is encountering vast opposition so please ensure that when you're in you report every thing, even things you may think are meaningless at the time, and have them documented. Because once you're out they will attempt to do everything in their power to avoid fulfilling the contract this nation made with you when you joined. Sad, but true.
