  1. what are your most recent pft's numbers?

  2. even though my latestpft showed 40.3 fvc and 38.3 fev they still denied me a 60% rating. they stated that since I had a fev1/fvc of 74.8. The letter goes on to state a higher evaluation of 60% is not warranted unless there is a fev1 of 40-55. my fev was 38.3???? they mentioned only 3 of my meds. they made no mention of asmanex, foradil, combivent but not the nebulizer 3 x a day and had a coures of oral steriods and singular allerga,diphenydramine.

      Tyson, you should be 60 percent. You are really bordering on the 100 percent criteria. You are just 1 percent away from it.

      Ask for an increase immediatly
