  1. The last exams were quite a while ago. The VA would have my records from 2009-2017. The reason the BVA judge requested a new exam, was because the Waco regional office only asked the examiners to only evaluated weather Osgood schlatters disease would cause my foot problem. My knees are rated for traumatic osteoarthritis, chondomalaica, limitation of motion. I have had one major surgery and three arthroscopic surgery on my knees. I have sent these documents to the VA. What I am thinking, since they have these records the decision will be made without a C&P Exam. What I am trying to figure o
  2. I got a letter from the VA yesterday stating they could not get some records from the VA in Los Angeles. They stated they had records from 1996-2009 and if I thought they had enough information to make a decision on my appeal. I got records dated after 2009 that I am going to send to the VA. My question is, the BVA judge stated in her remanded orders that I should have a C&P exam to determine if my bilateral feet disability is secondary to my service-connected bilateral knee disability. I have sent all my medical records stating exactly what my knees disabilities are. I have had
  3. I called the VA 1-800 number and the lady stated my BVA remanded claim was e-mailed back to the reviewer for clarification. On the BVA remand, it stated I should have a bilateral knee C&P that includes all the things wrong with my knees. I had claim my feet disabilities as secondary to my service connected knee disabilities. The VA had sent me to two C&P exams and had instructed the C&P examiner to see if my Osgood Schlatters disease was causing my feet problems. My knees are service connected for Traumatic Osteoarthritis with limited extension along with Osgood Schaltters disease
  4. This is from the remand from my BVA decision. Am I reading this right? In the underline section, is the BVA stating the VA did not pay me the whole retro when they increase my bilateral knee disabilities from 20% to 30%? Left and right knee disabilities: The Board observes that the Veterans also perfected an appeal as to his service-connected left and right knee. The July 2008 rating decision continued the 20% rating assigned to each knee. The Veteran filed an October 2008 notice of disagreement and a statement of the case was issued in June 2009. The Veteran perfected his appeal in July 2
  5. I just received a remand decision from BVA. It basically stated the Waco Regional office sent me to a C&P examination to determine if my bialateral service connection knee disability was causing my bialateral foot pain. The people in Waco only stated for the Doctor to evaluate whether osgood schlatter disease was causing my foot problem. In the 2008 C&P exam the doctor said no. I filed a NOD and they send me for a second exam in 2012 with the same critera. My bilateral knees are service connected for osgood schlatter disease, status post debridement degenerative joint disease and a his
  6. Berta I did not have any permermant heart damage, It just took me quite a long time to recover. Like I thought, I should have been given 0% service connection but paid for the time I was in ill. I am service-connected for hearing loss at 0%. Is there a difference. If the VA hadn't taken such a long time to schedule me for a C&P exam after the myocarditis they would have probably would have came to a different conclusion. As for the osgood schlatter disease, as I pointed out, Not one decision I have received addressed the presumption of soundness or aggravation. But to say MEB boards have n
  7. I got a call from VARO Waco telling me my CUE claim for acute myocarditis in the presumptive period was denied. Their reasoning was although I was hospitalized during the presumptive period which would have risen to 10%. When I had a C&P exam about 6 to 8 months latter, my heart was back to normal with no residual effects. I argued I should have been given 0% service-connection and paid for the time I was incapicated. My claim for an earlier effectived date for osgood schlatters disease was also denied. Although the rater in the initial decision stated he did not have enough information to
  8. I filed a CUE claim for myocarditis within the presumptive period and a claim for an earlier effective date for osgood schlatters disease on 11 Feb. 13. The claim was moving along find. I uploaded the 5103 waiver review through eBenefits on 9 July 13. The claims just disappeared. I could not get any information from the VARO Waco about my claim. They kept stating I did not have a claim. I did a congressional inquiry in September 13 and Waco responded they found my claim but called it a heart murmur. I responded that I did not have a claim for a heart murmur. I informed the congressman about th
  9. After I did a congressional inquiry, that when I got the e-mail from the Service center manager stating they had found my claim and sent the congressman a letter stating I had a CUE claim for a heart murmur. I wrote them and stated the claim was for myocarditis and aggravation for osgood schlatters and if the claim had been located why it wasn't back on eBenefits. They told me because the document had to be sent off to be scanned into VBMS. Has anyone ever sent an e-mail to these Field Operations offices that are suppose to oversee these VARO and got a response back? This is getting to be a he
  10. I filed a CUE claim for myocarditis in the presumptive period which was denied in 1976 and I also filed an earlier effective date claim for osgood schlatter disease permanment aggravitated by service, which was also denied in 1976. Carla helped me with the CUE claim and others on this site helped me with the earlier effectived date claim. In July I received a 5103 waiver review that I uploaded thru eBenefits. The claim then just disappeared. The only thing I got on eBenefits was open claim information was not available at this time. The person on the 1-800 number stated I did not have an open
  11. I had put in a CUE claim (myocarditis) and a earlier effective date claim (bilateral knee disability) 11 Feb. 2013. The claim had went through the review phase, gathering evidence phase. I got the 5103 waiver review in the mail and uploaded it through ebenefits. I sent a IRIS inquire to make sure the Waco, Tx regional received office received it. I got a response stating Waco had received it. All of a sudden ebenefits under claim status stated open claim status is not available at this time. After a few days, I called 1-800 number and the person stated I do not have a open claim but an appeal.
  12. I check my claim status again, my open claim is not in appeal. It just says open claim status is not available at this time. The 1-800 person made a mistake, the appeal is for somethink else. Why he could not see my open claim on his system is beyond me. Can someone why ebenefits states open claim status is not available. This has been the status since I uploaded the third party waiver review. In information would be helpful. Thank you, nanaeris
  13. I went to ebenefits to check the status of my claim after I uploaded 5103 waiver review. It stated open claim information was not available. About a week later, I checked again and it stated the same thing. I called the 1-800 number the person stated I did not have a open claim but an appeal. I filed the claim 11 February 2013, it had made it to the gathering evidence stage on 1 July 2013 when I uploaded the 5103 waiver review and after that it went straight to appeal without a decision. Is this correct or has the people at the Waco, TX regional office made another mistake and how do I correct
  14. yes other evidence was in my SMR, patella tendonitis, chondromalacia, removing fluid from knee, twisting knee. I am rated now at 30% each knee for osgood schlatters disease, chondromalacia, and osteoarthritis. I did not know at the time that a torn meniscus repair got a seperate rating, I guess that why the DRO stated it did not happen in the military without a explaination. I injuried that knee, had swelling, had fluid removed and had a profile change. I think this would be enough to make this service connected. I am getting ready to have surgery on my other knee for the same thing. I think
  15. Berta, No my SMR were not listed as evidence. In my service medical records were 2 MEB reports stating my condition was permanment aggravated by military service. There were several Profile changes form my knees, several orthropedic reports. The only thing the VA mention was my induction physical was normal but the Air Force doctors stated I had a pre-existing condition. I was in the military 2 1/2 years before osgood schlatters disease was discovered. How the Air Force determined it was pre-existing I don't know. Because this condition usually affect people while they are still growing. From
