  1. My compensation claim has been put in a Rating Review stage with no approximate completion date without a decision yet. Was in the ready for decision which is also still listed on benefit. Any thoughts. Good or Bad
  2. I'm back again looking for advice¡!!!!!!! Still haven't received decision yet, but my case has been moved to a "Rating Review" stage with no projected deadline. Is this good or bad in most cases?
  3. I talked to VA today to get my status. They stated that I was scheduled for a decision on Aug 31 but due to my inquiry on Sep 10 concerning my claim of proctitis for two years delayed the process to investigate such. Now it's near Nov and this round is almost a year. Thxs for input.
  4. P.S. Also noted on my benefit site that VA has added depression as new to my requested issues for increase and that they are in the preparation for decision phase whatever that mean; however, I did't see an addition fir radiation proctitis that was diagnosed on this latest c&p. Thanks for your response.
  5. I applied immediately in 92 for PTSD, chronic sinusitus and tension headaches and denied on them all. Also VA stated they did not have to recognize that discharge because it was from ADRB instead of Board f Military Corrections in the case of AWOL who denied me also with record I had as stated above and barred ne from the old GI bill. They also stated for VA purposes that period was considered dishonorable without regard to my Vietnam service during a prior and separate period. I''ve done stone internet research as to EED that it is possible to obtain if it can be exhibited that the veteran was insane at the time of the alleged issue and that VA definition of insanity is that the claimant had deviated significantly from his normal behavior pattern. Can I get your views and thoughts on this and anything else you might add. O yes I do not have access to a scanner at time.
  6. No I don't get SSD instead I get SSR. I was told when I tried to apply that I had to have worked 3 of the past year's. There's quite more to my story so here we go. I was drafted my first term in the Army in 1969 to 1972. Served in Vietnam from 1969-70. Caught hepatitis with 30 days to go. Stayed in hospital for a little over two months in Vietnam and 3 different hospital in Tokyo. While in Vietnam I suffered firm tension headaaches and documented in med records. I got out of the military and was out 8 months and decided to realist. I served in3 yrs this term and enlisted for 6 yrs. During this period, I was diagnosed as a remote depression and prescribed elevils and subsequently stationed in Germany. Eventually I went AWOL that lasted more than a 180 days. I had been in the military for more than 7 yrs and wad given for this last pos discharge UOTHC and reduced from E5 to E1 and no counseling for the depression. Further, I had JSCM, ACM, GCM 2d award, NDSM, VSM, Republic of Vietnam Gallantry Cross with Palm Unit Citation, RVCM and Marksman Qualification Badge Rifle-M14. After a few years the Army discharge review board upgraded that discharge to general under honorable conditions and restored rank to generale5. So I have a prior service honorable an honorable and general under honorable conditions for a total of three. When I applied for the depression the first time I was denied "issue diagnosed during a period for VA purposes to be dishonorable more than a202 days AOL". Prior to this mentioned AWOL I had a perfect record and other awards. I don't know what was happening to me except I was tiredI all the time and had bad headaches. Eventually until I was diagnosed with pc, I was sc for hep, and alpecia areota at 0%. As stated PTSD, depression, tension headaches had all been consistently denied even with prior PTSD diagnosis from a VA doctor in 1992, the depression diagnosed by military doctor in1975 and so forth. Also, VA stated it considered your record as a whole to characterize your periods and I can't believe that considering mine was spotless except for one incident that I know believe related back ti my time in Vietnam and the hospital. As before your comments are more than welcomed.
  7. I had a c&p exam for the residual of the prostate cancer in june also that stated painful orgasm, radiation proctitis, ED, slight anemia from pc, incontinence and pc in remission. No NSC for stress headaches.

  9. Had a c&p exam on June 17, 2013 for mental disorders other than ptsd, particularly for increase fir adjustment disorder at 30% .sc residuals from prostate cancer surgery and later radiation after cancer return. The examiner diagnosis was Mood Disorder NOS, ICD code 296.90 axis category I. Further checked: Occupational and social impairment with deficiencies in most areas, such as work, school, family relations, judgment, thinking, and/or mood. Depressed mood, Near-continuous panic or depression affecting the ability to function independently, appropriately and effectively Chronic sleep impairment Fattened effec Disturbances of motivation and mood Difficulty in establishing and maintaining effective work and social relationships Difficulty in adapting to stressful circumstances, including worklike setting or work Inability to establish and maintain effective relationships Suicidal ideation Impaired impulse control such as provoked irritability The examiner further states: It is felt that his adjustment disorder diagnosis is better accounted for at this point by the broader Mood Disorder NOS diagnosis , although their certainly is strong evidence that his depressive symptoms date back to his time in the military and are more likely than not caused by his noted military stressor. Symptom intensity appears to be overall severe with spikes to very severe during periods of stress. My question(s) are since I have applied for depression, stress headache, ptsd in the past and been denied, do I have a good chance of reopening those issues with earlier effective dates. I, m a Vietnam vet with agent orange due to prostate cancer at present with temp 100%. Your input is greatly appreciated Quote MultiQuote Edit

  11. I don't know if this is the right place to post my issue, but here I go. I was written by my primary care provider at VA to report for an annual physical. I did and was asked to take a urinalysis before leaving which I did. Later, a letter was sent by him to my mother's address which is my home of record. She called me and told me I had some mail from VA which she has done many times of which most would be future appointments. When she opened the letter it contained my lab report that stated that I tested positive for marijuana and cocaine and that he attempted to reach me by phone twice. My question is whether my confidentiality has been breached since I signed no release of information. Everytime I've needed any lab results, I had to go to VA and sign a release of information request. Why could he have wrote in the letter to give him a call. Again, is this a violation of my confidentiality to send unsolicited sensitive info through regular u.s. mail. I've never heard of a physician sending sensitive info through the mail before and most of the time request that you come into the office.

  14. On Feb 14 this year i had radical prostectomy for prostate cancer. In November of 2010 I was hospitalized with a bad URI and a PSA of 60 which lead to hmy 4th biopsy that discovered i had prostate cancer. After being discharged on the 17th of Feb 2011 i was not discharged with any antibiotic and wore a decather for approximately 11 days. After the decather and staples was removed, approximately 5 days later I was paining profusely and called urology and was told after explaining to them what was going on that it was just a part of the healing process. After calling urology after a few more days and getting no answer, i couldn't take anymore and went to ER and found out i had another URI and was fed antibiotics and pain medication through an IV and given some antibiotics and pain medication take home. Again on the 23rd of March i was feeling the same type pain as before and went to my appointed VA clinic because i could not get in touch with urology and took labs to see if i still had the URI. i was notified on April 5th by telephone that i still had a URI and the medication was being mailed to me and received on the 7th of April. I am changing pads for incontinence approximately 12 times a day and since the ER visit been suffering with hemmoroids i believe to be due to the pain and infection. I have gone to patient advocate, April 12th who also seem to think that someone dropped the ball that has led to unnecessary pain and suffering. The adovocate wanted to know why urology didn't want to see me any sooner than May 25th since I've had these complications and urology would not answer the phone for them either. Moreso, the advocate assured me that i wo.uld receive a call from them in the near future with an earlier appointment; however, this has not happened either. I'm considering filing a 1151 claim concerning this matter and would like some feedback on my situation. Also, i'm receiving a temp sc 100% because i'm a vietnam vet for agent orange.
