We dont know your PCP, so we dont know if she will help. But, you need to seek treatment for ED for 2 reasons.
First, for your wife, and secondly for the money. (SMC K).
If you could do the Wild Monkey before the PTSD meds, and the Wild Monkey Dance is gone now, then that is a pretty obvious link.
If you want compensation for SMC K, you need it documented. So you should start with your PCP. If your PCP does not have experience/does not treat ED, then you should ask for a referral to someone who does.
I like the ideas of how to safeguard your medical and service records. I still employ a paper/electronic system. I like the combo approach with redundancies. Believe you me it has come in handy several times already and once BVA hearing approaches, well I have a few green cards with the Regional Office and Evidence Intake Centers signature all over it. Can't deny an item wasn't received if you have a signature to prove it.
Not to give cudos to the VA but the e-filing of claims through e-benefits has not failed me yet, well other than consistent access but you can see and load both ways on submitted evidence. Confirmation of submission and acceptance are a nice facet.
Still even in this digital world, I would suggest the same in regards to records. Keep a hardcopy, have one on a drive, jump drive, online server, and for kicks throw a media copy in a safety deposit box. You never know.
The one thing I would suggest with the online methods is to make sure the encryption and back up redundant systems are to your satisfaction and meet new technological standards.
Never Had female Doc do a Prostate exam on me...but yeah I agree with the small fingers.
I don't testosterone injections or anything to boost my testosterone level.could try the V pill I suppose but no arousal no errection.
I just lost interest in sex...b/c of this ED Problem 2 years ago no problem, but since I been on PTSD Meds Big Problem.
I'll check with my PCP and let her know I wanted to address this personal problem with her and ask if my ptsd meds can cause this? b/c since I started taking them I lost interest in sex and it frustrates my spouse but she understands..but its not fair to either one of us.
do you guys actually think my pcp will help?
Talk about a Pucker Factor, Vet walks in to his PCP, the Dr Has Catchers Mit Hands with index finger looking like a Bratwurst.
NFW, right, stay in front of me Doc. There has to be a She/Dr that could use some Prostate practice.
Not a good idea for the Dr or Nurse to do a recheck on your BP, right after the Prostate exam.
