  1. Started an HLR in Dec. 2022. Found duty to assist. Sent me back to C&P doctor in March-ish 2023, in San Antonio. I have been in checking off and on for while. At one point was told everything was in. :/.
  2. Morning all! How long is normal time to wait for medical opinion on claim? When I ask for status of claim, that is answer I’ve gotten. They are waiting on medical opinion from last April. ”There is no timeframe as to when this evidence should be received.”
  3. Claim for lower back. Original incident my records. Claim labeled first as musculoskeletal, then degenerative disc, then something else, last thing shows intervertebral disc syndrome. Each time, it seems that they leave out the old records. My original treatment records, send in my records for a records review after my in person C&P exams. this last time , Dr. stated I didn’t get seen until 2016. Not even sure where that year came from. Lol.
  4. Hello all. Been fighting a back claim for last 3 years. Every time, send in new information, get new C&P exams, get different decisions ( but all not service connected), it has been renamed a different disability 5 times. Have recently been diagnosed with Ehlers Danlos. Has anyone ever had experience with this? Yes, it is genetic, but no, I was not aware that I had it. aA little bendy, yup, but thought some people were just like that. definitely a good reason why hurt my back way I did years ago, and body ended up way it is now. Spinal fusion last July. Don’t have funds for lawyer, or the crazy amounts for private nexus letter.
  5. Good afternoon all. Been checking on the status of my claim. One is new condition, one is secondary. I am able to see on ebenefits it changed to Pending Decision Approval. But, Ebennies is showing my rating still at 90 with all my current disabilities, all the same. If you log into the app or VA.gov, it says 80%, yet all disabilities are the same, no new ones, no decreases. ( was never sent decrease letter anyway) . Letters show 80 but with 90 pay. Lol I know I should just wait, but just wanted to see what everyone else thought. Thank you
  6. Good morning all. Had an update this morning that everything had closed as of 2 days ago. Yesterday had old information on it. So far, no updates on disabilities page. Is it safe to call it as denied? The C&P exam left me on edge as the doctor didn’t have his network working, nor seem to write anything down. Then they sent everything for a medical opinion. Should I give it a couple more days? Thank you.
  7. Took a look this morning, it has opened back up. Seems they have found an error that needs correcting.
  8. Thank you for the insight. I ‘ll keep an eye open for any changes.
  9. Good afternoon. Was checking to see if anyone had any insight to what might be going on. Last night checked my HLR appeal status and it says it was closed. Not that a decision was made, not that anything was sent out, only to contact VA or VSO. My issues are no longer listed. I had my informal conference a week ago. Thought it went well. She said it should probably close last Friday or this past Monday, but it closed a week later. Being it is the weekend, not sure what to expect. If anything should be updated yet, or if to expect any changes anywhere this quickly.
  10. This is all for the same supplemental. Saw QTC few weeks ago. This review was requested a week ago. No in person appt. Sent my appeal back into development.
  11. Good morning all. Hoping someone could shed some light on a couple things. I’m on second go around with Supplemental claim on the same issues, but this time, actually got to see a doctor through QTC that listened, and looked at everything with me. Tried for a higher level review, but missed the second phone call to schedule appointment, was in VA appt. I called Peggy last week and they explained the DRO is requesting a records review from the doctor? Last night I received a package from QTC explaining that a different nurse practitioner will be reviewing my records ? I’m a little confused and wondering if this will bode well for my claim as this person did not see or speak with me.
  12. I agree, there are many reasons for the way things turn out. One can either dwell and live on the negative or learn and move on to better things. Everything that happens is a stepping stone, an opportunity. We actually have tried with an existing home, new construction on a custom home, and now the modular, as they grow in equity the same as site built homes. Every time, we have been met with very low appraisals. In the end, if this is the route we are not to take at this moment, it is not meant to be. Just wondering if anyone else had run into the same situation. I truly appreciate it. We are building a new life, leaving behind our past individual struggles , bringing together our kids, continuing in our new careers, and a new town. There will always be hiccups. We are blessed everyday for new beginnings.
  13. Wasn’t sure where to ask this question. we have been hit 3 times by low appraisals. This last one, same property different kind of house. Appraiser hit us at $100,000 off. Last year, same property, different house, only $20,000. Loan amount is not much different. This will be new construction, MODULAR, home, on land in Texas. The comps, I am told she used were mobile homes, older, and on smaller acreage. When our lender sent in more comparable properties, as modular homes are not to be appraised the same as mobile and manufactured homes, she refused to budge. There is clear and defined error in the information used. How, do they expect anyone to buy using our VA benefits if they keep low balling us. My husband and I are both vets. This is very disheartening.
