  1. Can anyone tell if this rateable... Not sure what to make of it..... VA medical disability exam results: RA - minimal talonavicular degenerative change is seen. Anarthodesis is seen at the base of the first carpal metacarpal articulation. A small superior calcaneal spur noted.
  2. I'm legally blind trying to find my docket #. Is there anyway I can look up my case by name, attorney, etc?
  3. All, I just received an IRIS response to an inquiry about my BVA appeal for ankle contentions. It indicated that on 2 June 2015 a docket number was assigned to my appeal (form-9), It’s been 3 months, should my BVA packet have been certified by now and sent to the BVA? How long does it take the RO to certify appeal packets?
  4. Well good afternoon my fellow Vet's!!! I am really deflated right now....It's going on 3 months since I had my DRO review hearing with no end in sight. I was told that it could be weeks to months to up to a year for the decision. What erk's me is the fact that I had my hearing why can't the DRO take the time to review and come to a ruling? It's so frustrating! I am going on 3 years since my initial claim and almost 2 years since I filed my NOD. I understand there are others in the same boat or worse boat and I do sympathize with all my fellow Vet's! Now on top of this, most of y
  5. Hello, My back story: resigned my active duty commission in 1999 and submitted disability packet for bi-lateral shoulder condition (separated left shoulder, bursitis right shoulder), left knee (x2 surgeries), right ankle blow out, anemia, sinusitis, tinnitus, hearing loss, vertigo, right wrist tenosynovitis, Bell's Palsey, headaches, viral syndrome, low back pain, hemorrhoids, and bilateral hand and finger numbness due to mild ulnar entrapment. In late 2000, they came back with a20% rating- 10% for left knee, 10% for right ankle. I was also awarded 0% for sinusitis, right wrist, Bell's P
  6. Well first off, SHOUT out to BUCK!!!! Thank you for the advice to go and get copies of my C&P exams from the BVA office at the VA Dallas Hospital! It worked like a charm! BTW these C&P exams were done at a QTC facility! So with that being said, I need your input on this C&P exam. I applied for an increase to my Left Ankle Synovitis 10% - totally loss on this and would love feedback! Please see attached the report. C&P left ankle increase.pdf
  7. Okay so I talked to a lady I know that helps veterans and she was able to read me what the C&P exam over the phone. She is not able to send me a copy so I will do as Buck advised and go to the VA hospital and get copies of them from the VBA office. This is exam was for my L ankle synovitis 10% increase on my FDC claim. "Diagnoses from VA originally L ankle synovitis has changed - new and separate diagnoses. Worsening symptoms of pain with rapid progression since right foot was injured. Weight and pressure to L since using knee scooter and using L to propel. Tendonitis & T
  8. Hey everybody, just a quick update on me. On Friday I had a joint C&P exam for my R ankle and hips for secondary claims. Ankle was found Dorsiflexion of 0-5 and Plantar flexion of 0-40 Hips were found flexion: 0-40 extension: 0-20 Abduction: 0-20 Adduction 0-20 Rotation, external 0-20 and internal 0-20. Examiner opined that the ankle was at least as likely as not caused by already SC L ankle, but the hips were found less likely as not caused by current SCDs. X-rays of hips showed nothing. Ok, now hear this...he suggested/advised that I call my PCP and request for an MRI for my hips for fu
  9. I thought I would provide an update. A SOC to my NOD was issued on 20 April 2015. The (2) two contentions that I filed with the NOD where denied an increase (Shoulder-20% and Ankle-10% already service connected). After receiving and reviewing the SOC and all evidence I have submitted since filing my NOD back in June 2014 and the recently received Service Medical Record ankle operation report, dated Nov 1983, I decided that it would be best to fight for the contention that I had the most evidence, which was my ankle. My SMR ankle operation report provides a diagnosis of trimalleolar ankl
  10. 1989-I was medically discharged for eczema and rated at 10% service connected. 1999 and 2000-The VA rated my ankle (5271-Moderate Ankle Limited Motion) at 10% and shoulder (5202-Dislocations) at 20% service connected. Total rating: 40%. Oct 2012-I filed for reevaluation and increase for all three service connected disabilities. Mar 2013-C & P Exam. Examiner stated that x-rays will be order. I was never contacted or afforded the opportunity to have x-rays done according to the examiner. Aug 2013-Received VA Decision. No change in the three ratings, but received an increas
  11. I do not know if I have any right to a CUE, or any sort of review, so forgive me if I have posted in the wrong forum in error. I will give a history and wait for comment: April 1992 - Enlist. May 1993 - x-ray for ankle spain. No damage to the foot or ankle is observed. Tendon calcification is noted. 23 Jan 1994 - In Service accident: Dislocation of ankle (set) Broken tibia (plate and screws) Crushed/fractured 4th and 5th metatarsal (5th was open facture) Closed head injury (staples, stitches and scars) Scars 18 Feb 1994 - Hospital discharge paperwork only mentions the above.
