  2. CHECK OUT THE TABLE FOR THE S AWARD,IT STATES THE AMOUNT OF $ 3,368, IS THAT A SEPERATE AMOUNT NOT TO INCLUDE MY TOTAL DISABILITIES PAYMENT OF $ 3,088? CHECK MY ACCOUNT AND THERE PAYMENT WAS $ 336.00 MY S AWARD WAS FOR SPOUSE AND ONE CHILD ARE THEY ADDING MY DISABILITY PAYMENT ($ 3,088) AND MY S AWARD ($ 336.00)? WHEN I ADD THIS TWO FIGURES IT GIVES ME $ 3,424 . FOR EXAMPLE, DO I ADD THE S AWARD ($ 3,368) AND MY DISABILITY PAYMENT ($ 3,088) TOGETHER? IT WILL GIVE ME $ 6,456 . I AM SO CONFUEED, I AM A SIMPLE MAN, HOPE I GAVE ENOUGH INFORMATION.

  18. Hi I have had three operations on my rigth eye for detach retina, and none of them worked, i have no vision from my right eye, i cant read any eye chart with my right eye, not at three feet or two feet or one foot, my ey doctor told me i will not get my sight back, i have a claim in with the VA right now, just waiting,with my claim i sent in copies of the three operation, with a letter from my eye doctor which states total loss of vision in right eye. my OPC primery doctor also has copies of the operations, they gave me a cane.WOW I cant tell steps from a flat surface, nothing on my right side, i also do not have a lens in my eye, it was totally destroyed in my first operation. my wife has to be with me every place i go. it is very stressing i bang into walls, people, its hard to read with my left eye. a simple tast like putting water into a glass, i have to put the glass against the water picher to make sure the water gets into the glass. i dont know what will happen with my claim i am just waiting. i am also having problems with my left eye, with glocoma, and cataract.

It also states in the letter a combined evaluation of 100% has been assigned as result of the following action{s] Service-connection for Barrett's Esophagusis granted at 30% effective February 14/2005 I have been S/C at 100% for other disabilities since 1997. so what does the above combined evaluation 100% mean? Total in all i have 40%-1 30%-5 20%-7 10%-7 Question. should chronic lumbar radiculopathy, right/left be combined with chronic neutopathic pain syndrome, right /left.?
  20. Hi To All I just received a letter from AMC in Washington, D.C. stating that my Barretts Esophagus claim has been service connected with an effective date of February 4th 2005.

Hiatal-hernia--10% I have one more claim with AMC for restoring PTSD to original date.
