Welcome aboard, and know that you are not the only one this has happened to. Please post their reasons and basis for denial so we can pick this thing apart with you.

the main reason there saying i was denied was i was a barber when i had my bypass, in 06 and i quit working and havent looked for work, it says my cad is noted that it effects my ability to engage in physical employment,and no effect to engage in sedentary employment. it says the va physician noted that my ptsd causes me severe impairment in my ability to maintain employment, but i do not have total occupational and social impairment due to my ptsd .and at the end it says a high rating in itself is a recognition that the impairment makes it difficult to keep employment. i owned my barber shop, and sold it ,i cant stand up all day with my arms in the air , i went to barber college, but i only have a 9th grade education, and barber shops dont make you fill out applications, but since my last heart attack 8 weeks ago,i was in the va hospitial for 4 days and they did a heart cath and told me 1 of my grafts had blocked and killed my heart where the artery was and cant be fixed, and i also have blockages in my legs called pad .the va sent me this month to a c&p doctor and he also told me i have a surgical hernia from my chest to my belly button, i also have sleep apnea ,i would have thought my 70%sc ptsd would have been good enough for iu. and now i have light heart attacks 2 times a week the va told me i would eventully be on oxygen, thanks, and i hope theres something in here we can pick apart.

i know now why i was denied, because the va said i was able to do sedintary work, i just went to my va primary care doctor for my yearly physical and he put it on record that i can not do any type of gainfull employment due to my sc conditions, i am 90%sc now ,i had a 4 bypass open heart in 06, just had anouther heart attack feb 09 ,they did a heart cath and told me 1 of the bypass grafts had blocked and killed my heart where the artery went ,and cant be fixed, they also went into my legs and told me i have blockages and my vascular system looked like rotten bicycle inertubes, i have ptsd 70% sc and coronary heart disease 60%sc , they denied my sleep apnea as sc i have reaplied for that since i did the sleep study after my open heart surgery in 06 i was found to have sleep apnea and put on a cpap unit, they told me at the va regional office they have my sleep apnea rated as 50% nsc, and i have asked for a increase for my heart due to the damage from the artery that cant be fixed, and pad for my legs. thanks for reading

50% nsc for sleep apnea, what does that mean? Any money, how does nsc work?

Thanks,
