  1. Thanks Buck, yeah, no reason to stop using them now. It’s not like I’m going to get better any time soon!
  2. Thanks to both of you for the clarification on this and since I’m going to be 57 around the corner I don’t think they are going to mess with me any time soon. Carlie was a great help on these forums and has left a great deal of information for us to benefit from. As I have said before I’ll ride the wave until it hits the shore!
  3. I’ve never heard anything about that! (Dairy Date) what is it and where’s it at in the regs? That’s ate up that they have something like that up their sleeves. WOW
  4. Congratulations on the victory pwrslm.

    No I have both and have had no problems whatsoever!
  6. Wow, congratulations! That’s a hard one to get service connected!
  7. Mine was updated within 2 days. I am still waiting on my decision envelope to come! 3 and 1/2 weeks and waiting! Keep checking VA letters. AB8 letter should update soon.
  8. I have an attorney now but he worked on my va claim. Seeing that this will be my first attempt with SSDI do I need him now or maybe wait till the second try if denied? 100%P&T + voc Rehab letter + 56 = ?
  9. Shouldn’t the letter kind of be, like icing on the cake to show another agency’s opinion on my condition?
  10. Finally got my vocational rehab letter today and I think it’s what I need to take to social security for SSDI right?
  11. Thanks Buck!! You’ve been a lot of help to me over the years. I would rather have my health back instead!! Bitter sweet!!!!
  12. Remember, the va doesn’t care how jacked up your back is! I have 7 herniated disks in my lumbar region with no disk left at L5-S1. Its all about ROM(range of motion)!!! I receive 10% for my lumbar region since 1998. I’ve tried for an increase over the years with no increase. You can claim ricopathy ( or how ever it’s spelled) in both extremity separately. I get 20% for each leg. I also think that you can claim sciatica separately. DDD and IVDS are very different claims. IVDS is very hard to get rated because of the bed rest thing. DDD is what ,in my opinion, you should claim! Remember though, ROM is the defining factor for any type of back injury! And as far as I can remember the max you can receive for IVDS is 60% if you’re entire back is fused. DDD is 40% without the back being immovable.
