  6. I have a question on revokation of Power of Attorney or POA. When a veteran is firing his lawyer in the letter to the lawyer does the veteran or should the veteran list the reasons why he is letting his lawyer go, If you could answer my question that would be great.

  9. if i fired my lawyer i think the DAV would have to pick me up again because i am a life time member i paid the 125 dollar entry fee. i dont think they would like it though seeing me after i dropped my lawyer then went back to them but i think i will just stay with my lawyer for now like i said when the VA was confronted with my lost records 2- 3 weeks later i mean real fast no c and P no medical questionares they revoked my tdiu very quietly and gave 100% p and t and at that time the DAV said i may be eligible for SMC in fact the DAV officer said "in fact I know you
  10. glad i asked the question yes i do have a hacking cough i wake up late at night i thought it was the heat in my house so linisiporal does that okay i will have the doctor remove that. The VA did not prescribe that a private doctor did but my other question here is i have already been rated for back injury they put me on morphine sulfates but that wore out so now im on oxy co done i dont like that can i be rated for my chronic back pain and can my cervical and lumbar be advanced to 100% can a veteran get a 100% for chronic back pain?? thks grt
  11. If a person is taking Oxy codone or Morphine Sulphates for his pain from a service connected and rated back injury and is also taking propanol, linsiniprol and antenlol for high blood pressure can the veteran file for chronic pain syndrome, related to the back injury (assuming the back injury has already been rated) plus high blood pressure related to the chronic back pain and ed because of the chronic pain syndrome and or high blood pressure the vet cannot achieve sex OR DO ALL THESE GO TOGETHER? FURTHER ------- Also can high blood pressure be rated 100%? Can c

  15. it has been so long i am thinking of going back to the DAV because this lawyer is just not moving here. I have not received one piece of mail from this lawyer at all. The lawyer i have does not do anything . dont know what to do.
  16. after i got a lawyer the dav dropped me after a quick phone call i had with them may write to my congress person see if that does any good but i doubt it will may try writ of mandamus route see if that bring any results
  17. THE BRAIN INJURY IS ALREADY CLAIMED AND IT IS RATED. I WAS JUST CURIOUS WHY THE VA REMOVED MY TDIU AND PUT ME ON 100 % P AND T WITHOUT A C AND P THE ONLY ANSWER I COULD FIGURE OUT WAS WHEN I SENT THEM MY LOST RECORDS. I THINK THE WAY MY RATING IS NOW I CAN WORK MAKE AS MUCH AS I WANT AND KEEP MY VA MONEY? NOT SURE ABOUT THAT? IS THEIR ANY PLACE I CAN GO TO LEARN HOW TO DO A WRIT OF MANDAMUS? THANKS
  18. THE DAV DROPPED ME AFTER I GOT A LAWYER. AFTER THE VA GOT MY LOST RECORDS ( I SENT MY LOST RECORDS INTO THEM) THE VA REVOKED MY TDIU AND AWARDED ME 100 % P AND T. NO C AND P NO FURTHER QUESTIONS THEY VA TOOK ME OFF TDIU AND AWARDED ME 100 % P AND T, I HAVE NO IDEA WHY MY GUESS IS THE LOST RECORDS THEN A LETTER CAME FEW DAYS LATER ABOUT TRAU BRAIN INJURY STATING I MAY BE ENTITLED TO A RETRO PAYMENT FOR THAT ISSUE
  19. AFTER MY LOST RECORDS WERE LOCATED I SUBMITTED THEM TO THE VA. COUPLE OF WEEKS LATER BROWN ENVELOPE ARRIVES. IT DOESNT SAY THAT THEY REVOKED MY TDIU . IT JUST SHOWED THE NEW RATINGS HOW MUCH PERCENTAGE THEY GAVE ME AND SAYS I AM PERMANENTLY AND TOTATLY DISABLED. 100% . THEN ANOTHER LETTER CAME SAID SOMETHING ABOUT TRAU BRAIN INJURY AND BEING ENTITLED TO RETRO PAY FOR THAT ISSUE I SENT THAT TO MY LAWYER TO. I CALLED THE DAV UP THEY TOLD ME MY TDIU WAS REVOKED AND P AND T 100% SCHEDULER WAS AWARDED. THEN THE DAV VERIFIED I CAN MAKE AS MUCH MONEY AS I WANT AND I WOULD STILL GET MY 100%
  20. Okay will try that see what happens. I have another question for Pete. When I was on TDIU and my lost records were finally found ( i went without VA benefits for over 20 years ) I filed the lost records with the VA immeadiately SPOKE TO JIM STRICKLAND, claimed 38 cfr 3.156 and got a lawyer through Jim Strickland. What happens next just blew me away. Big brown ENV shows up, oh about 3 weeks later. (HUM I'M THINKING SHAM WOW THATS TO FAST??) Now you can't do anything without a comp and pension exam or file a new claim. I just sent in the lost records from NPRC with a let
  21. STILL WAITING 4 1/2 YEARS NOW FOR MY FORM 9 NINES TO BE CERTIFIED BEFORE THEY GO TO THE BVA. I HAVE A COUPLE OF SEPARATE ISSUES PENDING BEFORE THE BVA. I HAVE A LAWYER EVERY TIME I CALL HIM THEY TELL ME THEY ARE IN WAITING MODE. I CALL THE LOCAL VARO THEY TELL ME THEY ARE WAITING FOR MY FORMS NINES TO "CERTIFIED" BEFORE THEY GO TO THE BVA. 4 1/2 YEARS I HAVE LISTENED TO THIS BS. LAST MONTH OUT OF NO WHERE A VARO I DONT EVEN DEAL WITH SENDS ME A LETTER AND STATES I NEED TO FILE YET ANOTHER FORM NINE DIDNT MAKE SENSE TO ME OKAY HUM?? FOUND SOME OF MY FILE WAS FARMED OUT TO ANOTHE
  22. its been 2 years going on three now form 9 was filed many years ago letters come saying they r working on my appeals l i feel the va is getting worse and they order c and p for any thing you file for. i feel the c and p exams are just a sham the va uses their doctors to simply deny and force the veteran to either quit or go to the bva miss the 60 day form 9 appeal and your done unless you can prove 38 cfr 3.156 i beleive this will go on and on this has gone on for centuries since day one politicians talk nothing gets done nothing really ever gets done and the va likes that because t
  23. Hi i sent the appropriate form to the local va hospital certified mail stapled to that form was my doctors rx for a wheel chair. that was a while back I have not heard from them so i will call the hospital. If I am correct, on the second filing for a clothing allowance it becomes permanent but dont quote me on that. also i think i read here if you file after august 1 then you dont get it (clothing allowance) until the following August as the clothing allowance is only paid i believe on 1 August every year i dont know if im correct about that either. i let you know how i make out o
