  1. I was rated 20% for my shoulder due to many dislocations and 10% for cervical strain. I applied for lower back condition thru the DAV. It was denied because they stated the scoliosis I have is not service related. I appealed and asked for a hearing. Since I didn't mention scoliosis in the claim I'm not sure why that is all that they looked at. I've had a back Xray which showed "2. Mild anterior endplate spurring, with disc heights maintained. 3. Thoracic dextroscoliosis, measuring 22 degrees" Which I'm told is indicative of degenerative disc disease and/or a
  2. 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.
  3. Ok, first let me say, I am sorry for the long winded post, and also if this is not in the proper place. I served on active duty USAF for 7 years from 2003 to 2010.

Never were there any advanced imaging tests performed. After I separated in 2010, I did
  4. Looking for some extra guidance. I go through a county VSO and they are a great asset to have but I always like to do my own research and last time i went in, the info i got from reading here and from the post i had helped out my award the last time. I am currently rated 10% for a lumbar strain. I am going through a C&P that is pending at this point. Prior to the C&P exam but after I filed, I had to have emergent surgery on my L5-S1 (i was falling constantly). In the claim, I filed for an increase in my low back strain, i filed for the bilateral leg weakness associated with the foot dr
  5. This is my first post and I apologize if it's in the wrong area. I researched other peoples issues but I find mine to be a bit unique. I will do this chronologically and as summarized as possible: I left the U.S. Army Infantry in May of 2009, after serving since Jan 2006. I had not found any work but I was attending school (GI bill was coming in nice). When I received a recall packet (not unexpected at all) I dropped school happily to have my back checked out. Soon enough, they found the problem and released me. 9 Oct 2009 FINDINGS: There is bilateral spondylolysis at L5 with grade
