  1. So just got a provider message from my cardiologist that he wants to get some ankle brachial pressure index readings done on me for the next 3-4 weeks. Anyone know what this entails? Am I going to be wearing a monitor or something at work? Also, I am already rated at 60% with CAD secondary to DMII. Does atherosclerotic vascular disease affecting the lower extremities have its own rating schedule despite already being rated for CAD at 60%?
  2. My father in-law first filed a form 21-526 on 8/2/2001 for prostate cancer and heart condition due to AO. The VA has conceded that this claim remained opened from that date until 3/25/2020. The VA conceded service connection for CAD, prostate cancer, diabetes mellitus, diabetic peripheral neuropathy, etc with an effective date of 12/20/2017. The VA conceded on 3/25/2020 an effective date of 8/2/2001 for the CAD and prostate cancer, but denied an earlier effective date for diabetes and neuropathy. The VA has conceded a first diagnosis date for diabetes and neuropathy of 10/3/2006. I would
  3. So I am currently at 20% DMII with 60% CAD secondary to the DMII. I have recently been working on my pes planus claim and associated pain with plantar fasciitis. This includes a ton of general pain in my legs from calf muscles into knees and thighs. I have always attributed this pain to my pes planus altering my gait. However with all the x-rays I have had for my pes planus claim and other items, something has been popping out to me. On my latest knee x-rays this is included; "There are atherosclerotic vascular calcifications." On the x-rays of my hips there are these two notes
  4. 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
  5. Has anyone on hadit ever been offered or prescribed cardiac rehabilitation after cath and stents, bypass surgery, valve replacement or repair surgery? If yes, where, when, and how. If no, was cardiac rehab even mentioned during post procedure? It appears that only about a dozen VA hospitals have cardiac rehab "clinics" and personnel to provide the required guidance and monitoring even though numerous studies, including those funded by the VHA, have demonstrated unequivocally that monitored cardiac rehab slows CAD progression, substantially reduces cardiac mortality rates, lengthens post pro
  6. Lost and confused... In the big bad VA world... Ask three people, get three different answers... This is a long post, but it wanted to be all inclusive On behalf of my Vietnam Veteran father, USAF, Decorated rescue helicopter pilot, 21 years... I ask the following series of questions, that I am unable to get a "clear" answer from any person on the other end of a phone at a VA call center or RO, or VSO. Sometimes I feel like I know more than they do?! Help....... He has been rated 100% SC P and T for 2 years for CAD, following placement of 3rd stint, after many years at combined rating 60%
