  1. I am getting positive and negative on whether this is good.... I sent a message to my surgeon from 10 years ago, waiting to see if he calls me back... I am going to see if he will write me a small IMO.
  2. I received a copy of the VA medical opinion on my 1151 for necrotizing pancreatitis (in my PO Box), and a notice that I have 60 days to submit additional evidence. copy of the letter, with private info blocked. I sent info to my POA. Doing this while really sick totally sucks. (sorry for injecting my own take).
  3. I really want to report some problems with the Oregon VA Hospital and doctors, but I need to wait for my claim to get through... I have a horrible story of abuse from them... but, I don't want anything to interfere with my claims.... I am not sure if it would affect them, but am afraid someone could screw me for talking about what they did and got a way with...
  4. I suggest, if you have a POA, having them fax it to the VA. that way there are records of it. Like it was said, proof of it being received. Then the issue of the va reading it, evidence, etc. IMHO
  5. After all these years of hell, suffering and more hell... I see progress in the updates for my BVA case.... but, this is the my news for this morning on va.gov I read the comments and encouragement, but I don't answer all. The last bit yesterday looked like it advanced a tidbit more...
  6. Current Status The judge is seeking more information before making a decision The Board of Veterans’ Appeals is seeking evidence or an outside opinion from a legal, medical, or other professional in order to make a decision about your appeal.
  7. I didn't type this clear, answer... this happened many years ago.... and learned never to try it again, using an outside source...… nothing today from outside sources...
  8. short answer, yes, the judge asked me too if I asked for hardship and homebound. The POA never helped with any requests like that I had to ask for hardship.. also at the c%p for homebound. My life has either been tied to the bathroom or bedroom. Since the claim is moving along, I am not going to call those hotlines, it hurts thinking about it all. Like they said, if you don't have mental issues going in, you will coming out.
  9. I had very bad experiences with outside care and billing,,, had bad experience with Kaiser before that.... no sure about al that, yes, maybe, but for now to sick,, in agony,,, can't think..... too much to bear...
  10. I am curious,,,, how far behind is the action taken in the remand and the time it takes for them to show it on va.gov. Is from action taken days, weeks, or months ago? how up to date it? if known, of course,, a guesstimate? others,, it looks to me like they used the TCE chemicals for the decisions for my claims, not as much as the Jet Fuel, Gasoline, Diesel. Or maybe they used some of all but most TCE. Complicated, but I was exposed and sick on active duty from the fuels first, then the doctors told my command not more then the next command I was assigned to had me working with TCE, and then I got sick again, and the doctors again said no more contact. My BVA judge was good to me in my live hearing. I felt good about the hearing by the time it was over. I have no clue if he is still on my case, since a few years is passing by. Of course I have questions about why some things are addressed in some ways, but to me it looks like al is going pretty good. The thing that sucks, is even though he asked the BA to speed up my case because of illness hardship, the remands are taking years. if I don't answer things correctly here in the forum, I am sorry, I am doing the best I can without posting my life story and private details. I am being forthright as I can. And, the last, I have not been through the BVA before, so this is new to me, and am giving the BVA wide breach, as they look to have my interests in their motives for how they are doing this. If something is missing or not included, there must be a reason. I feel so sick, I feel horrific and the fight is killing me as much as the diseases. Maybe it is being worked on so I get the best benefits. Like scheduler 100% PT plus SMC (for the needing homecare and home bound? I don't know.) maybe if they do it the wrong way I will miss out or it will drag on past what life I have left yes, that is stupid, no one know how long I have left. I sound like drama queen, but through my experience, the surgeons talked to me about lifespan, and I went past what they thought I had. I spend almost al my time sick out of my mind and horrible, and thinking is very difficult
  11. oh, yeah,, they called me back after a month, they said they messed up the exams and told me I had to come back and repeat some. I did. Imagine going back again being treated like garbage with necrotizing pancreatitis, liver disease, and Parkinsons. When I was an inpatient I did everything they asked of me. When I was an outpatient for 20 years I did everything they asked of me. Same with the other doctors and hospitals before then. (I was called mentally ill and a drug seeker, and according to them nothing was wrong. I am just bad, and liar when I said I had intestinal disease. A drug seeker. Had enough yet? How much longer? How much suffering must I take?
  12. the c&p exams were in 2017. one of the doctor refused to answer my questions, I asked what did he know about me so I could know here to start, because I have an excessively long story. he was nasty and said I don't have time to a lot of talk. Another doctor spoke,, I think it was Pakistani.. I couldn't under stand him. neither could my wife. The shrink said he didn't have time and got nasty when I asked where to start... and asked if I was going to kill myself. I never found out what they knew so I would know where to begin. I lived in a va hospital for 6 months and I spent 20 year talking to different doctors. Many I volunteered as they kept telling me my diseases were in head and am a drug seeker. You can see where this is going with their horrible C&P b.s. Dog and pony show.
  13. the big thing I don't understand is in the 1990's I opened a claim for Intestinal disease, this was a long time many years before the hospitalizations for necrotizing pancreatitis and liver diseases. So, they don't have pancreatitis in here, and my 1151 is in remand status,.... so, it only show irritable bowel.. I can only guess that the BVA judge is working all this correctly, and the pancreatitis is tied to the 1151. That part I didn't post,,, I only posted the issues part, the remand part.. the Parkinsons was tied to the chemcials, and looks like they used more of the TCE (Trichloroethylene) than the Fuels... and Parkinsons. Also, since they saw me with the diseases while in the hospital for 6 months and the home care nurses also saw and reported my Parkinsons.. and also the many, many visits to neurology over the years. had they not actually seen it, they might have fought me harder. Most of the quickie c&p type exams just blew it off,, and if I had to depend on a c%p I would never get anything granted.
  14. Here is where my claims stand, not sure how long they have been at this stage, as the first time I saw this page was about a month ago,, before then I was looking at eBenefits, and found out that ebenefits is defunct.. phased out, and found more up to date info on my va.gov account : Status Issues Issues Currently on appeal Remand Service connection, myositis Service connection, Major depressive disorder Service connection, Irritable bowel syndrome Service connection, Eczema Service connection, Parkinson's disease Benefits as a result of VA error (Section 1151) Closed Granted New and material evidence to reopen claim for service connection, Irritable bowel syndrome New and material evidence to reopen claim for service connection, Eczema New and material evidence to reopen claim for service connection, Parkinson's disease Service connection, Limitation of leg motion (flexion)
