  1. I had a brief comment at my profile from a new member. I will let everyone know ASAP if the Seceretary adds anymore new presumptives to the AO list. Also any vet with bladder cancer who fits into the Camp LeJeune regs here: https://www.benefits.va.gov/COMPENSATION/claims-postservice-exposures-camp-lejeune-water.asp should file the claim that way. Also if an IMO IME doctor ( an oncologist) makes a very strong nexus for the bladder cancer ,having no etiology but for AO exposure, and uses some medical abstracts/treatises to bolster that statement the veteran might succeed in gaining comp for it. This BVA award shows what I mean: "In sum, the medical evidence of record is at least in equipoise as to whether the Veteran's bladder cancer is a result of his exposure to AO while in Vietnam; therefore, resolving reasonable doubt in favor of the Veteran, service connection is warranted for bladder/urethral cancer. 38 U.S.C.A. § 5107; 38 C.F.R. §§ 3.102. ORDER Service connection for bladder/urethral cancer is granted." https://www.va.gov/vetapp14/Files1/1412930.txt
  2. I finally received a hard copy of my recent C&P exam. I had to travel to the actual VAMC in DC to retrieve it even though I submitted a paper request about a month ago. Anyway, here are the results… Please tell me what you think my chances of receiving a favorable rating are. My claim was remanded back to the VARO by the BVA for further development and a C&P exam. Here are the results… ICD code: 309.28 (F43.23) Mental Disorder: Adjustment Disorder with Mixed Anxiety and Depressed Mood Under #3 Occupational and social impairment [X] Occupational and social impairment with reduced reliability and productivity is checked For VA rating purposes, check all symptoms that apply to the Veteran’s diagnosis: [X] Depressed mood [X] Anxiety [X] Suspiciousness [X] Chronic sleep impairment [X] Mild memory loss, such as forgetting names, directions or recent events [X] Impaired judgement [X] Disturbances of motivation and mood [X] Difficulty in establishing and maintaining work and social relationships [X} Difficulty in adapting to stressful circumstances including work or a work like setting [X] Impaired impulse control such as unprovoked irritability with periods of violence Remarks: The diagnosis obtained was based on the criteria contained in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders -5 (DSM-5) TYPE OF MEDICAL OPINION PROVIDED: [ MEDICAL OPINION FOR DIRECT SERVICE CONNECTION ] a. The condition claimed was at least as likely as not (50% or greater probability) incurred in or caused by the claimed in-service injury, event or illness. b. Based on this examination and veteran’s current symptoms described in the examination report, the veteran meets diagnostic criteria for Adjustment Disorder with Mixed Anxiety and Depressed Mood (with alcohol use) as outlined in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders 5 (DSM-5). Therefore, the current diagnosis is at least as likely as not related to the veteran’s fear of being deployed to the Gulf War during his Active Reserve Duty Training in 1990. Thanks in advance for all your help and advice.
