So I went in Friday. Saw two examiners. I didn't have time to submit my Statements in Support of Claims (PTSD & knees) my wife and adult children filled out but I had them read them while I was there. I just uploaded them on Monday.

I know a few of us on here posted about bunions, and I thought this would be the quickest way to get this out. I recently was DXd by my PCP with a bunion on R foot. X-rays confirmed this finding. So then I scheduled an appointment with my local VAMC Podiatry clinic. That was Tuesday the 13th, a few days ago. Podiatrist was very nonchalant and laid back, while looking at my feet. Lots of hmming and uh huh..ing to himself while looking. He said it looks like a bunion, but will need x-rays to confirm. I says, just
