  1. My question is I have 10% service connection for arthritis in my elbow, From day one I have complained of numbness and tingling I finally seen a rivate dr and had a nerve study done and just as i thought I have nerve damage my dr wants to do surgery. So if I have a service connection for my elbow can i receive temporary 100% if I have the surgery or does it need to be on what I'm having surgery for?
  2. Outstanding thanks a lot and yes it's a BVA hearing
  3. Thanks this very helpful.. since you are so full of knowledge hope you don't mind if I ask another question? I've had a claim that has been appealed several times now I'm waiting on a hearing now for my lower back and right shoulder the reason they have denied me is because I didn't complain about it hurting me till 5 years after my discharge my reason for that was I wasn't an Infantrymen to complain plus the pain wasn't unbearable until it had worsened some years later I had a spinal fusion done in late March of 2015 and now have a plate 4 screws and 2 rods in my lower back. And I had shoulder surgery in 2006 to repair the damage in there. Anything you can tell me to help with the outcome of myhearing when I finally get it
