  1. I picked up on the tone of his post,as well. It's a red flag for depression caused by this issue. I second that motion for Ward to get help. John Ward two fellow vets agree you need to get seen sooner rather than later for the depression you are experiencing. Please seek help as soon as you can.

  2. GBArmy. My C&P was for ED, the doctor checked me and was asked also about three questions. The DBQ for ED also asks questions about voiding dysfunctions, they asked the questions and I answered them. But I was there only for the ED and nothing else.

  3. "On the bright side, he said my walking treadmill test findings were promising, despite not making it even to six minutes." That is Great! I asked a Ret. Lt Colonel ,member of my church ,who had a sudden heart attack a few weeks ago and ended up with a triple by pass-if he got any treatment from the local VAMC, because I knew he got some of his meds there years ago- he said NO! (reason I asked is because someone asked his wife about him, and the wife said "Yes, we are going to SUE!" But it might have been regarding something else--- He is doing Very well, and he too could have died i

  4. You did say your PCP was on the federal contractor list-these contractors do not fall under 1151-or FTCA.... however , she might have been a VA employee , and treated you, before she became a contractor, or other med people at VA who treated you might be VA employees.....fully accountable for malpractice under FTCA/ 1151.

  7. Hi John: Welcome aboard. I can't offer anything on that cigarette smell problem, but if I am right, you are a brother who served in 'Nam. Welcome home brother. I also pick up some bad vibes from you about your health situation and it is causing you problems, maybe depression, or worse. If I could, please make arraingements to go to the VA and speak to them about how you are feeling. You got family to think of, and things can go from bad to worse pretty damn fast. Up here in the Northeast, we also have Vet Centers and they can really help too. I hope I am wrong, but I don't think so. Hope I hea

  8. It's for the questionnaire only. That happened to me on my last claim and they did not ask for a Nexus. My claim ended up denied. I had asked the LHI examiner if a nexus would help my claim. His exact words were, as follows, "Yes. But the VA only asked me for the DBQ, not the Nexus. So, I can't write one in if they did not request for one." Although, MY claim was denied. It doesn't mean yours will.
