  6. I,M 30% FOR RIGHT SHOULDER,I'VE JUST COMPLETED MAJOR SURGERY ON MY LEFT SHOULDER DUE TO OVERUSE. HOW WOULD THE BILATERAL FACTOR APPLY TO ME?
  7. FIRST THANKS FOR YOUR TIMELY REPLIES I'M RECEVING 30% FOR MY RIGHT SHOULDER AND I,VE BEEN TRYING TO GET THE VA TO DO SOMETHING TO EAS MY PAIN THEY SAID WE WILL SUPPLY YOU WITH MEDS AND EXRAYS MRI,S BUT THATS IT .IF DID,NT HAVE HEALTH INSURANCE TO HIRE A DOCTOR WHO WAS WILLING TO TREAT ME AS IF I WAS,NT A 5150 SECTION 8 AND BELIVE WHEN I SAID THAT THE PAIN IN MY SHOULDER AND ARM WAS REAL, THE OPERATION PROVED THAT THERE WAS MORE DAMAGE THAN THEY WERE WILLING TO ADMIT . KNOWN I HAVE 3 MONTHS AWAY FROM WORK ON SHORT TERM DISABILITY AND LOSS OF INCOME. BUT I ALSO WANT TO REPORT THAT MY DOCTOR
  8. I JUST HAD SURGERY ON MY LEFT SHOULDER AND ARM AND IT READS OPERATIVE PROCEDURES PERFORMED: 1. LEFT SHOULDER ARTHRISCOPIC BICEPS TENODESIS. 2. LEFT SHOULDER ARTHRISCOPIC SUBACROMIAL DECOMPRESSION AND BURSECTOMY. 3. LEFT SHOULDER ARTHROSCOPIC ROTATOR CUFF AND LABRAL DEBRIDEMENT. 4. LEFT SHOULDER PLATELET RICH PLASMA ARTHROCENTESIS. MY QUESTION IS THIS, IF I FILED A CLAIM WHOULD THIS BE CONSIDERED ONE INJURY OR FOUR.
  9. And another thing the only law listed for their decision is the 38 cfr cowards nothing to challenge.
  10. I have the first C&P exam from the NP for the month of Feb ,but no one at the VA hospital or the C&P exam unit has any record of a second C&P exam for the month of March.
  11. correction it was the NP opinion that thrown out because they fell that the DR. has more education.
  12. The Board may appropriately favor the opinion of one competent medical authority over another. See Owens v. Brown, 7 Vet. App. 429, 433 (1995); Wensch v. Principi, 15 Vet. App. 362, 367 (2001). Is their any way to win my claim after the VA uses Owens V. Brown against me?
  13. I do not recall seeing anyone other than a NP . The VA gave only one official C&P exam in Feb and they say that in March i was given a second unofficial C&P exam because I was'nt aware of a second C&P Exam .
  14. DECISION Service connection for hiatal hernia with gastroesophagal reflux disease (claimed as stomach problems and acid reflux secondary to medication for right shoulder separation with impingment and degenerative joint disease) as secondary to the medication used for the service-connection disability of right shoulder disability is denied REASONS FOR DECISION We have denied entitlement to service connection for hiatial hernia and gastro esophageal reflux disease as this condition did not occur in service nor is shown to be secondary to the medication used for your service connection
  15. The year 2000 i filed a claim for a grade 3 shoulder separation and was denied i appealed and was granted 10% . I appealed for a higher rating and was given 20% than i filed a claim for an increase in 2009 and was given 30%. My question is can request retro all the way back to 2000?
  16. well i fell that since they already have the results of my c&p exam for gerd and i've been wating for 6 months i did'nt want to stand by another 6 month,until they establish c&p exams for the other issues. I want them to decied on my gerd claim this summer. They are giving me the oportunity to gather evidence like Doctors names, hospitals , medicaton and statement from my wife and childern for the other issues.
  17. This is a portion of the letter from the Department of veterans affairs. Review of your claim file revealed that your previous concerns relating to the claimed issues had not been addressed . This is simply a correction to the previous letters dated feb . If the conditions are reflected correctly you may expedite the claim process by calling the 1-800 number We are working on your claim for: Newly claimed bilateral shoulder with pain in arms and hands,(previously denied) DJD left shoulder,(previously denied) Depression and pain syndrome Issue deferred from rating decision _ stomach
  18. In February I completed my cap exam and I'M still waiting for a decision. I called the 1-800 number to find out what’s going on I was told that my claim has been sent back for clarification. clarification why I ask ? I'M told their is no explanation. My question is what does this mean and should i be concern.
  19. BROTHER OR SISTER YOUR ABOUT OPEN UP A CAN OF WORMS. i WAS ON SICK LEAVE FOR A YEAR AND I WAS FIRED FROM A VERY GOOD JOB IT'S BEEN ABOUT 7 YEARS AND I'M STILL BITTER ABOUT IT.
  20. Today i received a letter scheduling me for my c & p exam for bilateral shoulder condition i'm currently receiving 30% for my right shoulder condition. Know i'm requesting service connection for bilaterial left shoulder condition. My question is what should i do if the c&p exam was made for the wrong shoulder? should i let them continue with the emax or get up and walk away.
  21. JUST HAPPY THAT I AFTER 9 MONTHS OF TRYING THEY ARE FINALLY GOING TO GIVE ME A C&P EXAM . I HAD TELL SOMEONE.
  22. TODAY I RECIEVED A LETTER FROM THE VA THAT STATES YOU HAVE 2 SCHEDULED APPOINTMENT WITH THE NEURO EMG CLINIC. FOR A BILATERIAL LEFT SHOULDER CONDITION SECONDARY TO MY RIGHT SERVICE CONNECTED SHOULDER CONDITION.
  23. Forgive me but I'm trying to wrap my head around this .§ 3.310 Disabilities that are proximately due to, or aggravated by, service-connected disease or injury. (a) General. Except as provided in §3.300©, disability which is proximately due to or the result of a service-connected disease or injury shall be service connected. When service connection is thus established for a secondary condition, the secondary condition shall be considered a part of the original condition. Now if i had 30% shoulder and they gave me 30% for gerd secondary to my shoulder would this add up to 60%.
  24. I'M receiving 30% for shoulder and if i get 30% for gerd secondary medication would this add up to 60% and would they consider this to be one injury. If so could i file for 100%.
