  1. So..... I had a VA Dr.'s appointment last week and the doctor brought to my our attention that I have a heart condition. We are all stumped that it was not brought to my attention. The VA Dr. was skimming my med. records when he stumbled across a resident's notes. The notes were off an EKG reading[1] the Dr. said, "Well, it's the resident's fault for not notifying the Cardiology team... but the Cardiology team signed off on it." This data was collected February 2018... It is now February 2019. The Dr. that luckily saw the notes said, you need to get a CT-Scan ASAP. following day there was evidence that the issue had gotten worse, and more issues were brought to my attn. (Local cardiologist in the community & a VA cardiologist team said I was fine) I went to an IME , and he was shocked and said, "Someone dropped the ball....you're lucky you're not dead." He refer me to a Cardiologist for further review. (This appointment is on Monday). The VA is now having me do another CT scan with their specialist and consultation the next day. Question: Would this fall under negligence or would this fall under Malpractice? Regards, R762 [1] February 2018, I was in-patient for a few days; I went to the VA because I have been having syncope issues and seizure like activity. The VA wanted to monitor. [Update: 2/19/2019] After 3 examinations (CT-Scans and consultations) 2/3 of the consultations stated, "For your size, your aortic root is in normal limit" I will have a check up to see if there is any change regarding the diameter of the dilated aortic root. The doctors also stated that there is "no aneurysm, and records had poor choice of words where there is just a wide ascending thoracic aorta, not an aneurysm."
  2. Bring buddy statements and be straight up with them how it has effected your life and your family’s life. “Noli me Tangere”
  3. The DAV rep I was going through is not there anymore... I figured he was ignoring me. I am about to pull my POA and pass it to Nevada Department of Veteran Services. I received a call from Congressmen Amodei's office yesterday (08JUN16) and they are more than helpful, His staff is on point. She suggested I get in contact with NDVS. FYI, I received in the mail the decision last month. I will be appealing the effective date. To all that have commented, Thank you for sharing your knowledge and experience via Hadit.com.
  4. I just checked eBenefits and it has me marked at 50% PTSD, my total Disability is 60% now. My battle buddies are telling me that I should be at least 70% also, the DAV rep said that I wouldn't have had a C&P exam if the VA originally verified the stressor (which as far as I understand), they never verified it, and I was denied; to which I appealed and it said stressor not verified. Since it is now verified, this time with a bunch of buddy statements, private practice counseling letter, and my medals with recommendations as proof, would my case be applicable for retroactive pay?
  5. I think you are fine. Someone (all of us really) have to keep them in check.
  6. Was your C&P Exam done at the VA? The out sourced examiner I had in 2005 totally low balled me like that. I am curious if you appealed this or not. Do not give up! That is the VA's modus operandi. They want you to give up. Hoping for the best for you.
  7. TG1979; I would start contacting those that were with you when deployed, ask for buddy statements. I know that the buddy statements from my unit helped validate my in-service connection.
  8. For clarification, I never commented that I had a PH. I didn't earn that medal, nor was I awarded it. I was not seeking a PH. I have PTSD. But that is frowned upon by my peers and chain of command. The attack on the pentagon 9/11 is a loophole. As far as I know, nobody from my unit received PH. The criteria for a CAR or CIB are not met in this scenerio. I am being diagnosed and treated for direct service connected PTSD from the attacks on the pentagon and the search and rescue induced PTSD. No PH was awarded.
  9. The DAV Rep said something like my original claim was closed because I didn't have a "verified stressor"? I think. I guess my question is, "If the claim was closed because it did not have a verified stressor, and the stressor is verified now, would that make a difference?" .
  10. Supporting documentation submitted/Uploaded to ebenefits; 1. Buddy Statements (10 from other soldiers including my higher NCO's at the time that were in the pentagon side by side) 2. Awards/medals/certificates (for proof I was in there (2 ARCOMS and an AAM, and a Operation Noble Eagle Certificate) 3. ROI (Release of information) from VA appt's in 2004-2006 where VA Psychiatrist and LCSW documented me as PTSD + prescribed medication for PTSD. 4. A years worth of bi weekly counseling with private doctor (2015-present) 5. Letters to 2 Congressmen and my Governor. I also wrote a letter to Donald Rumsfeld. *What I want to see/look back on is what the non-VA psychiatrist wrote in her report. she totally discredited me; the VA took her word over mine.
  11. I am still waiting on my C-File to be sent to me, I hear that this takes a long time to get.
  12. From my understanding, the examiner said that the reason it was denied was that I was misdiagnosed with OCPD, this examiner said that I do, and had PTSD, and that OCPD was secondary and was onset after the PTSD, that the OCPD was induced by the SC-PTSD. If I do have proof that I was asking about recieving help while I was in, but was denied due to wrong diagnosis (pointed out be VA), wouldn't that be CUE?
