  1. Hello All, I was contacted yesterday by the VA informing me of an upcoming C&P exam in 3 weeks. My exam is for a re-eval for Mental Health (Depression and Anxiety) secondary to chronic back pain (5 back surgeries). I am currently rated at 50% for Depression and Anxiety and I recently had my 5th back surgery back in late Feb. I am on Clonazepam, another med for compulsive disorder and sleeping pills. All of this is on top of my Hydromorphine (pain med). I have a pain implant machine in my lower back which is not helping and my doc want to remove it next month. Do I have anything to wor
  2. Hello to All, I had to post this! I had a routine VA (one year check-up) today and I did not know my VA doctor that was treating me for the last 3 years retired. I walked in with my Kane and the new doctor checked me over for my ailments and asked the routine questions. I kindly answered all questions and then she dropped the bomb, hammer or an unusual question. My VA doctor stated, "I see you have a Kane and you have back problems. Mr.****, you have nice shoes on today, are they basketball shoes. My answer, yes! she then stated, well sir, how can you wear basketball shoes if you c
  3. Question for the forum, I am rated at 10% for Gerd (No hernias), since my initial rating in 2011. I was on one med at the time for Gerd (Prilosec) and my notes state because I have no hernias a higher rating is not granted. Fast forward, I have been on 3 different meds a day for almost a year (zantac once daily, Prilosec twice daily, and sulficate 4 times daily). I now have a heital hernia and my stomach is covered in polyps (to many to remove). I have neck and shoulder pain and I constantly vomit, in which my doctor state it's from my acid reflux. I am scheduled for a c and p soon, becau

  5. I posted on another forum as well, please help. Ok, I contacted the DAV at my local VA and he told me that my claim was up for normal review. I received my 100%sc rating in 2011 and I was scheduled to have my c and p this year. There is no date as of yet, however he did tell me I needed to be proactive, so I made him my POA to ensure I receive p and t. He told me that I should not have anything to worry about as long as I have been going to all appts, and taking medication as prescribed. My c and p is for depression/ anxiety/ ptsd and benign prostate hypertrophy both of which is still on

  7. To my knowledge I do not have a POA rep...
  8. Should I upload my SSD award letter to ebenefits for this c and p as evidence?
  9. Hello to all, I want to apologize for not checking in more often. I was checking ebenefits today and I noticed that I have to claims pending and increase. I did not put in for these increases so I don't know who did. I am 100%sc and I knew I would have a c and p exam but who out I for the increase. The exact wording states "two claims (increase) pending. I know one does not request anything if you are 100%sc. The two claims are for major depression/ anxiety/ Chronic ptsd and benign prostate hyperthrophy. I take two meds for my head and one med plus undergarments for prostate. Just had the
  10. Been on SSD for 3 years and recently had my review. I filled out the paperwork and sent it back in over a month ago, how long does it take for the review process take? Also, I ask my doctors throughout last week if they heard from SSD and they said no.
  11. My goal is to one day get P & T, however I am not requesting a C & P exam. When ever it come I want to be prepared. My pain management doc is an outside doctor and I want VA to have all medical records. I believe this letter is especially crucial to me retaining my 100% even when or if I receive a C & P date.
  12. Hello All, Just a quick question, I receive SSD (award date 2011) and I am 100% Sc. Will it be a good idea for me to submit my SSD award letter to VA? And I received a letter from my Pain Management Doc last month, stating I am unable to work. Should I submit that letter as well? Please respond quickly, I am heading to VA in the morning for a routine appointment and I want to turn them in if it's possible... God Bless! Vet2010

  15. Hello all, In 2013 my neighbor committed suicide right in front me with a shot gun. I was already taking meds for depression and anxiety; however this made things a lot worse. I'm curious to know how the VA will see this if I ever have a C and P exam. Will they say smething like, "it happened outside the military and therefore we cannot link it to your current case." I am already a 100% Sc. What do you think? vet2010
