  1. Good afternoon - I am currently 100% P&T (63 yrs old) and need to have surgery on my foot. I am 0% service connected for a bunion and 0% service connect for hammer toes. The pain is getting the better of me on this one. The doctor is going to operate doing the standard bone shortening/bunion removal/plantar repair on my foot. It is a civilian doctor performing the surgery - VA hospital is too far to put my wife through that hassle. I will be without a shoe and crutches for two months plus (limited to house for 30 days). Do I file this as a new claim or increased on earlier 0% servic
  2. Got a call from the Regional office around 1600 answers the call and the person said that the line was recorded and it was a conference call about va disability claims if I had a claim that I had a problem with and want to talk to the speaker on the conference call at the RO live. I listen to the call about thirty minutes as Veterans were calling in about their claims, the speaker would listen to the Veteran and tell than that a person from the RO would call back about their claim and see if it was done right. Has anybody gotten a call like that,wanted to talk about my claim but had second t
  3. My husband, Marine Korea, Camp Lejeune, received 100% disability for kidney cancer, then VA cancelled it saying not enough proof. Can't be biopsied due to congestive heart failure and location of small tumor and radiologist and urologic oncologist have stated he has renal cell carcinoma. There are CTScans. He appealed. Now ALL his medical records from the original disability claim and the appeal, all filed by the local VA rep. have disappeared from his online file. This was confirmed today by the VA dr. who did his yrly. checkup. He could not find them either and said it is very diffi
  4. Good afternoon. I am waiting on my supplemental claim results from the VA. Nothing has updated in e-Benefits and on va.gov it the status shows that the VA has made a decision (under the status tab) and under the issues tab it says "currently on review - compensation issue". Has anyone seen this and know what it means? Many thanks! Heather
  5. Hey guys, I don't know if I'm in the right place but i was needing some clarification. After fighting with the military for six years, the C&P examiner stated that my condition precludes me from any physical occupation. I developed asthma back in 2012, while in service. Is that typical wording for pretty much everyone? I guess my English isn't that great and i would like someone to please explain to me what that entails? The examiner also stated that there is a 50% chance or greater that my injury was incurred in the line of duty, does that mean that they serv
  6. I filed a claim in october of 2018 for ptsd and TDIU, long story short I tried to do everything myself and didn't have the proper diagnosis so I was service connected for anxiety based on having a medical marijuana card diagnosis for anxiety but the rating was 30% and I much worse off then that. So I obtained a referral from the va to a fancy psychiatrist from the university of north florida's behavior health department and was diagnosed with ptsd, bi polar 1 and panic disorder. I used this new medical evidence as my supplemental claim evidence and filed it April 16, 2019 after receiving my le
  7. Hey everyone, love the sense of community and support here, long time reader first time contributor...Anyway, just another OIF marine veteran from the mid 2000s here with a few questions. I initially filed a claim in 2010 - was awarded 80% in 2011/2012 and filed an appeal shortly thereafter for tdiu. I was awarded ssdi and have had continual treatment from the va for ptsd, tbi and lower back injury. I was denied initially, filed a nod and hired an attorney. Seven years later my claim seems to have been diversified, my appeal for an increase in rating has been sent to the board (vets.gov s
  8. I am the primary caregiver for my father. He is a Vietnam Vet, recently diagnosed with a presumptive disease, multiple myeloma. I went through a VSO to file a disability claim on his behalf. She listed his myeloma, along with other health conditions on his application. We faxed all requested health records and needed information. He has now been told he needs to go to two different C & P exams. My father is unable to complete these exams due to his physical condition and extremely compromised immune system. He is in the middle of an intense chemo cycle. It is extremely difficult to get hi
