  1. We had exactly the same thing happen. Actually sent for records twice too. The last batch we not only got the blank sheets but a hen scratch note that hubby had lacerated his hand and had sutures put in and a tetanus shot (I think) and that was it, no return to clinic notes on removal of stitches or follow up, nor initial injections at entry, and while there is a note about being in ward, not a word on why or when. A follow up urine that says "retake" and a note that GFR was 1.4 and that chest was ok. No vitals nothing else. At discharge there is a form that basically says he was waiving his
  2. We are sitting with DRO Review Pending since June 2015. Thats 734days. Got ya beat!
  3. Hooray for you BroncoVet! I love hearing good news for these brave souls. Keeping my fingers crossed we will win too.
  4. Hi Berta. Thank you for your help. We originally filed the claim for CVA/Stroke due to HTN which is what Dr Ellis wrote. The Dural AV Fistula we believe was formed due to the head injury he had that wasnt treated but the cut to his hand that nearly severd his fingers was service connected for 10%. In 1962 unless you were knocked totally out unconscious they paid little attention to a head wack. So he never got it treated just the fingers sutured back together. He got that without any difficulty because I had a small notation of it in his record but nothing on the head bump. I am told that whil
  5. Similar situation for my husband. We got a piece of paper from the Baumholder clinic, but only stated seen for sutures due to cut, no details published and no x ray reports on the head wack that happened when he recoiled from nearly severing his right index finger on the tank cables and hit the hatch, Still believe that blow caused the formation of a dural arteriovenous fistula, that years later ruptured due to hypertension he developed in service thanks to the herbicides, insecticides, and diesel he was breathing all the time un protected. We got blank health record forms they had in his file
  6. Sounds like they are just moving furniture in a burning house. Changing symantics does nothing to solve problems.
  7. Bronco Vet - I finally did a redaction of the Nexsus here for you. Please let me know what you think. The CAD statement is not yet back.If you want to review it as I wanted the DBQ corrected first and the review done on all of the CT/MRI reports etc. There are a number of other issues still awaiting that as well. I dont want to stall the DRO/Appeal filing a new claim. God knows this is taking long enough. I do have CAD already filed and several others including incontinence. kidney, etc. See what your thinking or if I need more here. Gerald Fredrick- Dr Ellis Nexus.docx
  8. Thank you kindly Broncovet. I would send you the info on the Nexus but dont want to overwhelm you with it all, and countles CT/MRI./ PFT's so on. I am 24/7 caregiver for him as he can not do any ADLs without help. We have been waiting now for years, Your help is so deeply appreciated.
  9. Bronco vet I have the nexus too. Just cant get it to redact so cant post without the identifiable info on it. I am sending this for hubby who can not speak and is wheelchair bound. All well documented. Also have tons of proof of conditions on base including the Industrial Hygiene Surveys, the Colonels statement that they were using 2,4,5,T and the others, and affidavits showing that others also experienced them. I have the C file that they sent. and am waiting on the updated one. I also have a disk of all my VA med recs. And I found a form they had him sign at discharge stating he was aware
  10. I believe the DBQ's show the diagnosis. As well as the private records. There were error in the PA statements that I have already asked VA to ammend. First he is on continuous oxygen, and he has proxyimal a fib, and he has private ekg that showed a AV Block on its readings twice, that they dont want to address. And because of the recurring infections, the damage to his lungs f rom exposures well documented and statements from many others about them. I believe we have all three. I have a nexus as well from IME , that states the stroke was caused due to hypertension that was shown in his servic
  11. Bronco Vet thank you. Here are the DBQ's done recently showing the diagnosis, also the IME, and I have affidavits signed by other vets attesting to seeing and breathing the heavy spraying, and a letter from the Col who was in charge of the Public Works Department that says they were using 2,4,5,T,Chlordane, Lindane,Malathion, Diasinon, DDT,DDE, and Nicotine Sulfate, throughout the base, and a fellow soldier in the same unit in Germany on the HIDAL Subkit spraying at the border DBQ's for VA review.docx we were stationed. The Industrial Hygiene Survey that was done at the exact time I was the

  14. By all means become a premium member. You can not only get access to the general VA records there, but RX ordering etc. If you want detailed report then you need to go to the VA health system records dept and request a copy. Can do either by completing the mail in Hippa Request or in person. Quicker in person.
  15. While we have been waiting on the NOD since June 2015, I have continued with my research and medical documentation. A couple of months ago they sent me for a round of tests,exams, CT's. PFT's etc. Very thorough, very managed. And done by the Chief MD of each Dept. In the process we found more evidence, and then last visit with primary care, she tells me that she is referring us to the C and P DBQ Clinic which I has never heard of. Was not sure about going but decided my Nexus doc's curriculum vitae is very extensive and at best I think the VA docs may be MDs but with far less experience. So w
