  1. I have a rating for 10% for:. right knee patellofemoral syndrome, claimed as gout and iliotibial band syndrome Is it common for VA to group conditions, can these be separated? Thanks for the assist...
  2. I served in the US Army from 1978 to 1982. In 1979 I hurt my knee while on active duty during physical training. It has never been the same since. I have seen my private Orthopedic Surgeon many times and his last diagnosis is a Total Knee Replacement. I was able to get a copy of my service medical records and it’s documented in there that I suffered the injury while on active duty and I saw medical personnel for treatment. I have not submitted a VA claim for this yet. Has anyone successfully submitted a VA claim for this type of injury and were you successful in getting it approve
  3. I have a question hope you can help, I'm going to have to have a Left Knee Revision arthroplasty Replacement this is service connected I had the full knee replacement back in December 2016 then I sustained an injury to the same knee resulting in Revision arthroplasty Replacement I just found out today. So question number one is, Will the VA put me back on Temp 100% since they are going to have to replace the left knee again? And how do you word the statement just right in order for the VA to start process this before I go into surgery? 2nd question is that the Doctor seen in the Xrays and MRI'
  4. An advice anyone can give would be appreciated. I go in for my first C&P exam for my knee issues. I submitted a FDC with my military medical records showing foot issues, shin splints, and issues with bunions. They wanted to operate on the one bunion but I would have had to reenlist. I also submitted my personal medical records that include my recent MRI reports that show various knee issues. (arthritis, patellar maltracking, meniscus tears...) I received a call to set up my C&P exam about a week after submitted my FDC online. I have been looking online, and found out that if I s
  5. Sorry for the 'wall of text' ... First off I would like to thank everyone for their service. Whether you served in one of the honorable branches or are just a contributor to this wonderful forum I have been lurking on, commitment to Veterans is valued. I am a female, Vietnam era, USMC vet. There are not many of us, as during those days they trained the women as the men, resulting in a high attrition rate. I believe it was due to this intense training that I am, in my old age, starting to feel the burn. I was never as proud as the day that my Eagle, Globe and Anchor were pinned on me.
  6. I need help reading my C&P exam. I went to the exam this month and was treated like trash. I am hoping someone can look at the report, and tell me if I need to appeal it because the examiner was extremely rude and made me go to certain points when doing a flex test on my knee. This caused a lot of pain and I feel if I was set up for failure. Please help. if someone could tell me what they need to give me some closure. I already have my C&P exam so just let me know what info you need.
