    Ebenefits is showing a claim for a new exam for hubbys heart. This is the third exam. He was just in hospital in Aug for pulmonary embolism. I uploaded paperwork. I think it will show that his heart condition is worse and now the right side of the heart has problems. I checked for them to make a decision on it. Do they usually leave the percent at the same or could they possibly increase it? The diagnosis from the hospital stay says chronic copd, Chronic CHF, sleep apnea for at least 10 yrs using cpap, and acute kidney failure. Now we do have a remanded appeal for ckd and iu. But should we go ahead and file a claim for all this. They do not usually just go ahead and grant these things, right. Or will they just go ahead maybe and grant 100 percent for the heart. And how long does it take for them to decide. It is due to close between 1-18 and 02-15.

  3. Broncovet, so are you saying wife can not get doc if vet is not at 100%?
  4. I just saw Tbirds post here about the ignore button, and I’d like to say, if I have been a pain in the a— I’m sorry. I don’t mean to be. Just looking fo answers.
  5. We got decision from bva on May 30,2018. We are receiving the extra in pay from va but no other retro yet. They keep saying it is waiting for audit from uscg.

    through the looking glass, my Stimulator is working really good for me. Are you retired military? If so you would qualify for Stimulator. They make you go thru physicological testing. Not sure why. I geuss so some dr makes money off it too. But has Buck said they let you do a trail . In the the trial they put these little wires up your spine. They are really small. And they program the remote and they tape the implant on the outside of your backside. You can control the remote yourself. But if you get at least 50% improvement you are good to go. But I will tell you I have more improvement now than I did with trial. I did get a new bed to. And it has helped even more. My problem now is my back gets very tired. I’m just taking it slow. And I’m thinking of doing some water type exercise to help restore some back muscles more and my core muscles. If you ask your pain doctor they should know about it. Look on internet on Boston Scientific.com. Good luck, With whatever you decide.
  7. Another question. As some of you know my husband has remand for iu and chronic kidney failure. He was in the hospital the last part of Aug. he was admitted for blood clot in the lungs again. The diagnosis beside that was acute kidney failure. Should we at least inform them to the fact he was in and the diagnosis. I don’t know what that would do. But it may be worth a try to push them to advance things. Or do we file claim and link the embolism secondary to a service connected disability. Just don’t know if we could link to diabetes, or heart, or both. The doctor at hospital did say it put pressure on heart and kidney and diabetes.. just don’t know how to go about it all.
  8. Omg, just so sick of the run around. from everyone. Called Peggy, and he says they have not got audit back from the coast guard pa office Ras. Called uscg ras office and she said they had gotten it on oct 3 from va. And they have 90 days to get it back in. Do they have to do audit every time you get an increase? He did see the one they did when he was at 50 to 80 %. Oh. Btw he is retired from the uscg. We are supposed to get a bit of retro back. They have paid the monthly increase for sept. And Oct. on another note, I ask about the remand for kidney disease and Tdiu. He Peggy, said, it was sent back to the ro to do what the bva instructed them to do. In our case send out a form to file for tdiu. Which we did. Then we had to upload the employers address. Then it goes back to the bva for decision. So now I wonder do we go back to end of line now? Heres my other question, after we filed for the tdiu, which they told him to file for, they sent a letter saying that there was a claim filed in Jan of 2012 and we could not have two in. We didn’t file one in Jan of 2012. Could this be a cue on their part. That was at the same time we filed for the increase in diabetes and chronic kidney failure sc to diabetes. They did not send us anything at that time to file for tdiu at that time. In fact they denied it at the ro. So is this their way of covering up a mistake?
  9. Ok my hubbys remand is in Cheyenne Wyoming and regional offic in st Pete is supposedly handling retro pay for the 20% extra on increase in diabetes. You can never get ahold of them thru the 800 number. Geuss what I got numbers to there personal office. Calling them tomorrow. Will probably be get rimmed. And want to know how we got them. Never telling them.

    Shows historical claim of ihd. It reads “ihd also claimed as mitral regugatation and valvular heart disease, and scar.” Reopen. Ok hubby had claim in in 2009 for aortic valve problem, which was denied. It was looked at by nehmer, brokered out to Ronoake, etc.. they showed it reopened on ebenefits etc but we never got any paper work on it, back then. My question is if they are including it as part of the ihd claim, why didn’t we get paid at the 100 percent rating for a period afte his surgery for replacement of the valve and that is when they found the cads?
  12. Sounds like it.. but we need too do. Thank you so much for that advise and links.
  13. Buck, I just had a Boston scientific stimulator put in. The trial period was good. The actual procedure is a little more complicated. They ask me what side I slept on and I sleep mostly on me right side. The still put it on that side. But I can sleep on either side. Thank god I had the pain pills. Bu t I’m cutting down some. I hav gabapentin. That she had given me. I never really noticed the neuropathy before, but it has advanced now too. So I’m getting off these hydrocodon and sticking to the gabipentin if I fel like I need something. I was getting mad because I was not getting any relief from the stimulator. I think when you have been put under for any thing they need to right instructions down for you. My husband was there, but you just can not remember everything at our age. I got to playing with programs tonite and II found one I like better. I go back in a month I think. We did get a new bed. We had a queen and we went back to a king. I don’t have all the pressure point pain I had with our sleep number. And it is adjustable. I was not getting very much sleep at all. I stay up late, and I would still be wide awake after three hrs of trying to go to sleep. Now I go to bed earlier and fall asleep right away. I’m sure pain meds help. But dang they make you itch a lot. Have had to take Benadryl with them. Another reason to nix them.hope your wife gets the relief she is looking for. I’m still not there, but I’m hoping to be able to get more exersize.
  14. Yes I will go thru what we have here. He filed for arotic valve problem. The did inferred it. But we were not aware of it then even after they denied it secondary to diabetes nehmer reopened it. He had to have it replaced in 2013. And at that time he was also diagnosised ihd. So I will pull all that back up. How long does it take to get a copy of your c-file. Could I possible get the atty with American legion that is going after earlier date for diabetes increase. They may be able to inlighten us on all of it.
