C&p Exam Clinicians Guide 9.4

Question

Would there be a CUE if the following is not followed in a C&P Exam of this type? Only one doctor did my exam back in 1981. Very little information was entered by the Doctor. He did not note any my complaints in the exam report. This is what the guide states must happen at the exam please see bolded item.

Thanks in advance

C&P Exam Clinicians Guide 9.4

What needs to be reported about anatomical loss or loss of use of a creative organ and why?

The examination must include the following information:

a. The details of loss of a creative organ may be in the medical records, but the examiner should still describe lost and remaining portions of the penis, scrotum, and testes.

b. Impotence, sterility, or retrograde ejaculation should always be described and the cause named (e.g., Peyronie's disease causing impotence or TURP for BPH causing retrograde ejaculation). If a vasectomy was performed, the examiner should report when it was done and the reason.

c. With impotence, the report should indicate whether it is constant, whether it is permanent, what treatment is used, and the effectiveness of treatment in allowing intercourse.

d. With penile deformity, whether erectile function is wholly or partially lost should be reported.

e. Examination for testicular atrophy must be conducted by at least two examiners. The size and consistency of the testis should be recorded. Reduction in size should be described as reduction to one-third or one-half normal size, or even less, for example. If only one testis is affected, the size of the unaffected testis should be recorded. The etiology of the atrophy should be reported.

In short the answer is no. No Cue would exist in this case. The only argument you would have is inadequate exam which should have been approached shortly after the exam.

Keep in mind a guide is a guide and not law. Cue only exist when there is a failure to comply with law (as cue is a legal issue). Although there is no CUE successful arguments of inadequate exams have been resulted in re-exams and the award of a claim. However, such an argument would have to had been made at the time or shortly after the exam.

    • If you are a Veteran, represented by MOPH, you need to know that MOPH is closing down its offices.  This can have a drastic effect on your claim, and it wont be good for you.  You likely need to get a new representative.  

      This station confirms MOPH is closing its doors:

    • Examining your service medical records...
      * First thing I do after receiving a service medical record is number each page when I get to the end I go back and add 1 of 100 and so on.

      * Second I then make a copy of my service medical records on a different color paper, yellow or buff something easy to read, but it will distinguish it from the original.

      * I then put my original away and work off the copy.

      * Now if you know the specific date it's fairly easy to find. 

      * If on the other hand you don't know specifically or you had symptoms leading up to it. Well this may take some detective work and so Watson the game is afoot.

      * Let's say it's Irritable Syndrome 

      * I would start page by page from page 1, if the first thing I run across an entry that supports my claim for IBS, I number it #1, I Bracket it in Red, and then on a separate piece of paper I start to compile my medical evidence log. So I would write Page 10 #1 and a brief summary of the evidence, do this has you go through all the your medical records and when you are finished you will have an index and easy way to find your evidence. 

      Study your diagnosis symptoms look them up. Check common medications for your IBS and look for the symptoms noted in your evidence that seem to point to IBS, if your doctor prescribes meds for IBS, but doesn't call it that make those a reference also.

    • How to get your questions answered on the forum
      Do not post your question in someone else's thread. If you are reading a topic that sounds similar to your question, start a new topic and post your question. When you add your question to a topic someone else started both your questions get lost in the thread. So best to start your own thread so you can follow your question and the other member can follow theirs.

      Tips on posting on the forums.

      Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery” instead of ‘I have a question’.


      Knowledgable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title. I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.


      Use paragraphs instead of one huge, rambling introduction or story. Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.



      Leading to:

      Post clear questions and then give background info on them.



      Examples:

      A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?



      I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine but claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?




      B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?


      I was involved in traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?





      This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial from your claim?” etc.

      Note:

      Your firsts posts on the board may be delayed before they show up, as they are reviewed, this process does not take long and the review requirement will be removed usually by the 6th post, though we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.

      This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before they hit the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims and this helps us do that.

    • I have a 30% hearing loss and 10% Tinnitus rating since 5/17.  I have Meniere's Syndrome which was diagnosed by a VA facility in 2010 yet I never thought to include this in my quest for a rating.  Meniere's is very debilitating for me, but I have not made any noise about it because I could lose my license to drive.  I am thinking of applying for additional compensation as I am unable to work at any meaningful employment as I cannot communicate effectively because of my hearing and comprehension difficulties.  I don't know whether to file for a TDUI, or just ask for additional compensation.  My county Veterans service contact who helped me get my current rating has been totally useless on this when I asked her for help.  Does anyone know which forms I should use?  There are so many different directions to proceed on this that I am confused.  Any help would be appreciated.  Vietnam Vet 64-67.
