  1. I went to the VA once I got out of the services. I was following the orders of my exit exam doctor. I didn’t want to wait on a medical discharge from the services on the island. Once there the VA doctor did a physical exam and then requested an x-ray. Prescribed pills for me and told me they would schedule me another follow up appointment. Several years passed and I never got that follow up appointment. Now I find out that they lost the doctor records of that visit. The x-ray somehow has showed up now. It shows that I had Levoscoliosis in thoracic spine. I know I should have waited for the medical discharge now… I also have more damage to my spine now. 3 herniated disk, muscle spasms, and arthritis. Can I still claim my back as a disability?

      First, the answer to your question is yes. Seconded, you might want to ask your questions in one of the forums. Finally, IMHO (In My Humble Opinion) before filing a new claim or any claim I would request a copy of my VA C - File and review it and go from there.  Depending on the evidence in your records this claim could still be open or you could be sitting on a CUE ( Clear and Unmistakable Error) and you may want to consider having a lawyer to review this evidence.
