  1. On March 12, 2018 my husband was admitted to the Veteran Affairs Medical Center of Memphis, Tennessee for a prescheduled three-day admission. Subsequently, he tragically died on March 22, 2018 at 10:14am due a mind-boggling amount errors and failures of the providers of VAMC of Memphis. I am alleging that the VAMC of Memphis, Tennessee and the medical providers failed in their duty of care to my husband by their: failure to monitor and administer Vancomycin properly and safely, failed to recognize and correct Vancomycin toxicity which lead to Acute Renal Failure, failure to recognize and tr
  2. Any advice will be appreciated. Here is what I have: 70% PTSD with panic attacks 50% sleep apena 30% IBS 30% migraine including migraine variants (also claimed as headaches), residuals of traumatic brain injury. ( the professional thing re: a migraine rating is that.....going into the BVA process, i did not have a migraine rating. I did have a 10% TBI rating. The law judge found the migraine diagnosis in my reccords, ordered another TBI eval, and once the eval was done, my 10% TBI was changed to 30% migraine. I need to get to 100% P & T. The route i want
  3. Hello hadit Community. I submitted an initial claim for Claustrophobia in 2011 and my claim was denied in March 2015. I submitted my NOD and appealed the decision. I recently (March 19, 2020) received another rating decision on my claim for Claustrophobia and was denied again for service connection. The issue in 2015 was that I had no evidence of my account of being mistakenly locked in the Arms Room. My period of service in the US Army was from 1985 to 1994, where I was a Supply Sergeant/Unit Armorer and stationed primarily overseas. I submitted buddy statements and a description of m
  4. On Thursday I was informed by my new legal representation for the FTCA claim that not only would I be filing out the form 95 but that they would be contacting my husbands adult children (whom I have no contact with and my husband had very little contact with) to sign a retainers contract and sign Form 95. It is essential that the FTCA claim be correctly. I am not sure that this above is correct. I have spent the entire weekend searching for the statue, the code, the rule, the regulation as to whom must file the FTCA claim. Can anyone help me find this information?
  5. I have filed an 1151 Claim. I have finally found an attorney to represent my FTCA claim. We are going to submit Form 95 this This attorney informed me that he would need to submit separate Form 95's for myself, my son, and all 5 of my husbands previous children. My husband had a total of six children. Five of the children are by his previous wife whom died. And he and I have a son whom is now 9. If successful at the FTCA it is my understanding that the laws in TN will mean an award in the FTCA would be divided this way after attorney fees: 1/3 to the surviving spouse, 2/3 divided b
  6. I asked a question. Then people submitted a post. How do I respond to the person trying to help me. For example, I asked a question, Berta responded . How do I respond to each post. Thank you so much in advance.
  7. I was helping a buddy of mine veteran file claims cat outside Dr. DBQ done and filed but VA DENYED ALL CLAIMS without sending him for C/P exams he 10% tinnitus and he was a Heavy vehicle mechanic in the army did a tour in Bosnia as well I just don’t understand how they could deny without even doing C/P exams He’s very upset and doesn’t understand I told him it’s par for the course any advice that we could do?
  8. So long and short I received aC/P at Robly Rex preformed by a PA who I feel clearly did not answer the questions accurately Like for instance I was going for secondaries of cervical and ankle pain my history is bilateral pes planus 50% rate and 30% migraines 20% lumbar DDD’s 0% shinsplints 10% tinnitus I was going for secondaries one of the questions on DBQ ASKED was does the veteran have now or ever had shine splits she put NO also she stated That I don’t use a locomotive device which I have inserts by the VA for my shoes which are considered a locomotive long and short x-ray showed demi
  9. Is there anyone out there that might have a phone number for Cheyenne Regioal Office. Not the 8008271000. We keep getting run and chase the monkeys tail. If anyone has another number, I would really appreciate it.
  10. Ebenefits is showing a claim for a new exam for hubbys heart. This is the third exam. He was just in hospital in Aug for pulmonary embolism. I uploaded paperwork. I think it will show that his heart condition is worse and now the right side of the heart has problems. I checked for them to make a decision on it. Do they usually leave the percent at the same or could they possibly increase it? The diagnosis from the hospital stay says chronic copd, Chronic CHF, sleep apnea for at least 10 yrs using cpap, and acute kidney failure. Now we do have a remanded appeal for ckd and iu. But

  12. I would like to thank everyone who provided me with such valuable information concerning my Individual unemployability claim. I did receive my 100% disability. I filed my claim on April 16, 2018 and my claim was awarded on June 20, 2018. It took only 64 days to complete. Thanking you all again for your help. God Bless you all. Air Force Vet
  13. Hi, Berta (everyone), I am curious if there’s any instructions on how to go about: DIC is granted & accrued / death pension benefits are denied. My VA rep (Colorado VA office), recently explained to me that my mom was awarded DIC benefits ( I filed on her behalf ), effective the day of his death (my dad died Dec.30, 2017) of... 1-Pneumonia 2-COPD 3-CAD but, we (she) was denied accrued because the Army / VA did not owe him any money, since he never filed for benefits while alive. While that part is true, he never filed because he was told he did not have agent ora
  14. Hi guys, my husband is in the hospital with blood clots in lungs. He had this in 09 and I was new and did know what to do, so we missed filling.. and for when he was in hospital for for his replacement of arotic valve. He went in yesterday morning. They have not discovered where they came from. Same as last time. They did not come from his legs or feet. Hope they can figure it out this time. He will probably be going on permanent blood thinner. What is my nex move here? Advice appreciated ahead of time.
  15. Ok went to vets.gov and it says hubbys appeal will soon receive a board decision. Would it be advantages for him to stay there or do the Ramp. Another question when you click on issues it shows he is asking for an increase in diabete. And on the other issue it says service connection for arthersclotic renal. He filed diabetic nephrology secondary to diabetes. The reason I’m concerned here is he was diagnosed with diabetic nephrology before he was diagnosed with cad. I’m afraid they are setting up to deny this already. Should we contact Vso?
  16. Can you send in info on an appeal if it has Been at bva, but no decision yet? I want my husbands nephrologist to write a little bit different letter, as to why he thinks diabetes has caused his cod etc. I ve been reading a lot of decisions I don’t think the one he wrote will do the trick. I’m thinking I can write it up and he can read it and if he likes it, put it on his letter head. What do you think.i have read and looked up enough of these decisions and read enough publications from pub med, diabetic association, the kidney association to write one. It has to be very explicit on explai
  17. I have not logged onto ebenefits in about 6 months. I needed a verification letter for my property taxes. The date of my last award for IU was changed from December 2016 to December 2017 - Has anyone else had this happen? Unable to send a request - IRIS apparently is not responding - with the ability to put in a trouble ticket. It allow the form to be out but will not submit. _ this was on the weekend will try again. I go to the VA 3 times a week for counseling so I will see if VBA office has a perspective and give an update - Check your date for a Navy "CYA" ( Cover your
  18. Can you tell me where I can find the va training letters for different disabilities. I have been looking for two hours.
  19. My husband put in a claim for ihd/aortic valve stenosis secondary to diabetes, in 2009. It was denied. I have been doing some research and in 2012, they did test on people with diabetes and aortic stenosis. And they found they produce a protein that enhances inflammation that causes a greater risk of stenosis of the aortic valve much worse and faster, than someone with out diabetes. My husband had surgery to replace the valve in 13. Now his cardio doc says they can hear the murmur again. My question is should we reopen that claim, file a new one etc. I know sometimes the va makes you
  20. Good Evening Everyone! Okay I have a few questions regarding my Disability claim as well as my husband. First let me start off by listing all my service connected disabilities: 1.) PTSD-100% 2.) 60% Asthma 3.) 50% Migraines 4.) 50% Endometrosis with IBS 5.) 10% Eczema 6.) 10% Rt. Knee 7.) 10% Left Knee 8.) 0% scar left breast 9.) 0% hernia 10.) 0% rt breast scar I'm currently rated 100% SMC S and I'm paid at the housebound rate. I'm a little confused. Another veteran told me I should be rated L or L1/2 because I was getting paid the housebound rate prior to Migraines and Asthma being inc
  21. Here is a link with the latest proposal w/IU controversy : https://militaryadvantage.military.com/2017/06/va-chief-withdraws-staab-appeal-vows-to-replace-iu-pay-cut-too/ More concise link for specific IU : http://www.military.com/military-report/va-reverses-call-for-iu-benefit-cuts.html?ESRC=mr0619.nl
  22. Good day all. Hopefully I can explain this clearly without confusion. I received my BBE in Sep 16, and immediately filed for a NOD with more evidence (related to neurological issues/damages). However, I am 0% service connected with sleep disturbances/sleep apnea. Recently, as in two weeks ago, I was diagnosed with apnea and required to wear and was given a CPAP. Long story short, my claim is with the DRO for appeal and review, and although I am not contesting/appealing the sleep apnea for increase, I have the necessary medical evidence including the VA form for sleep apnea completed by my slee

    TDIU Granted

    Hi - Just want to let everyone know there is hope if your claim is stalled. They are working at the Houston RO. I got a call from DRO today, and told me I was granted IU with back pay. (PTSD/MST Rape & ATT Murder) I have my Navy retirement too, so I think this is the end of the road for me as far as claims go. I will continue to pray for adjudication with other claims. This was exhausting. Graduating in 72 days with my BS in Criminology- Thanks Voc Rehab.
  24. Ok my husband has Ann appeal in since11/12 for chronic renal failure secondary to diabetes. There is a new claim in ebenifits, which we did not do. It is saying for cornary heart disease RFE. I'm assuming that means renal failur evaluation. So I'm assuming again they are going to try and approve it asso with the heart disease. We put in for the heart disease 7/14. He was diagnosed with diabetic nephropathy by his private nephrologist. What are they trying to do? The appeal is still up. We have not gotten anything from them. No docket no etc. but he would loose a lot of back pay is
