  1. How old are you? I have always seen posts that say that after a certain age (52?) they stop re-evaluating and just leave it alone. The time frame on your event that caused it may also come into play. I noticed in my paperwork the decision included something like “not likely to change”. Which may be a factor in my case. Was that in your paperwork from your C&P?
  2. I had some psa tests over the last several months. I was formerly holding at about 3.8-4.0 then I had some in the 6’s and my pcp sent me to a urologist for a pre-surgical counseling. Scares the crap out of me! I’m 61 and retired 7 years ago and have been pretty sedentary. I went straight out and joined a fitness place. I’ve lost a few pounds in the first two weeks and am now at 222 at close to 6’ tall. I probably need to get down to 180 but I’m sure someone looking at those BMI charts would say something like 155. Never liked those. At 40 I was on a health kick and was under 5% body
  3. That's a shame, Tex! They rated me at 0% on my first visit in '78. It was 9 years later before I met a friendly VA rep who had a kid on my football team and was a friend of my principal. He told me that was pretty standard and that I should've gone back right away. He got me an appointment and I got a rating. Do you do your own paperwork? I once met a rep who believed that 20% was fair for ANY hearing loss, so the people who trusted him were getting a 20% rating because that's what he requested in the paperwork he submitted. It helps to get a copy of your test results and compare the
  4. I described mine. I also referenced some articles by experts, at least one from someone employed by VA medical. One said "tinnitus is a problem if the person feels it is a problem" or words to that effect. As far as I know there is no actual test for it.
  5. I was going to post what brokensoldier posted. My son was on mine after I was rated 100%. I believe he was getting about a thousand a month 5 years or so ago.
  6. I've had all kinds of C & P docs. The worst was a an audiologist who was syrupy sweet to me beforehand, then went out of her way to be rude after it was over. I got a copy of the test later. At the highest frequency it must have been turned all the way up. I told her that I could feel the tubes vibrating but couldn't hear a thing. The record showed she marked me as having heard the tone at a reasonable volume and noted that she was not in favor of an increase. I requested another test and got an increase with a different audiologist. I had been increased years earlier, but n
  7. For awhile now wherever I go on the internet (especially facebook) there is ad after ad for some outfit called Veterans Disabilty Network. They advertise that their one goal is helping veterans. Their name is not always up front and it seems the only way to contact them from the ad is to submit their online form. This is not a service I am considering or likely qualify for, I just like to know if this is a reputable organization that is a public service worth recommending or a snake pit of lawyers that siphon money off of disabled vets. Anyone know?
  8. It has been a few months now. Recently I asked about bloodwork and they had me drop in. They only took one vial instead of the few usually filled. They sent the results that only show that my prostate is well within the safe range. I had some good gains in the gym the first few months and had gotten to the point where I was no longer progressing.I had some extra motivation because we had a vacation coming up. Went back home and visited family and wanted to look good. A little while after getting back I just went back to the old me and not doing anything, so about 2 months since my last workout
  9. Good advice. I didn't consider how many chemicals the people on the bodybuilder cycles had used. I can understand the side effects and trying to counter them with other things that bring their own side effects. The Erase Pro is still sealed. I was describing a side effect of my meds to a former PCP a few years ago and he said he could prescribe something for it. I thought that was great. Then he started to go over the side effects of that scrip and I said "No, I'll pass, no more side effects!"
  10. Gave myself my second injection of test cyp today. Still haven'the broken the seal on the Erase Pro. Still checking for info here and actually being more patient than I ever thought I would. I don't have a clue when the Dr. is going to evaluate any results and I don't want to foul the results or piss off the Dr. or make a mistake. I would say that I do feel better and that it fades some by the end of the 2 week period. Sure does make my quad sore at the injection site! Doesn't set in for a few hours but will probably last a few days like the first time.
  11. Thanks, k5one. Ithought it would be like that. My wife looked up from doing the taxes on April 14th and asked.
  12. I think I already know the answer to this but my wife wants me to ask. DHL took 2 of my grandsons away from one of my daughters. we have had them for years or so as foster parents. The state sends a check for their upkeep. Currently as 100% P&T my wife is my only dependent. Do foster kids count as dependents for VA Disability?
  13. While I am hoping to get in shape, I'm having trouble figuring out the bodybuilder stuff. They talk about using it as "post cycle therapy". I suppose that means after completing a few weeks of steroid use. In my case, I don'the think there is a comparable period. I thought an AI, or even the OTC stuff would be taken daily while I am receiving injections...right or wrong? I was out of town for the day and on my way back home I picked up a bottle of Erase Pro which I will ponder awhile before I consider actually taking one. I am wondering about follow up blood work. I don't know when my P
  14. They will order a product called Erase Pro which several bodybuilders seem to swear by. The prescription would surely work better, but don't I have to have a prescription to order on the link you posted? There are some other OTC's on the market but none held in such high regard as erase pro. Of course I found that I can buy it online for a little over half what GNC wants and the wait is probably about the same. I think I will be needing something. Today my workout was not as successful as the first 3, and my nips seem a bit touchy. Next injection is next Friday, then I'don't like to go to
  15. Broncovet, I drink Mexican Cokes whenever I have the choice. The glass may make some difference, but the real difference is that down there they still make them with real cane sugar. To save money, ours is made with high fructose corn syrup. Funny thing. I am wondering if it has anything to do with the injections, but I have always had an extreme Coca-Cola addiction and would suffer through eliminateing it from my diet during short periods of training. I quit cold turkey without the withdrawal headaches when I got the first shot. No craving at all! In fact, I poured a little after a meal a
