  1. Hey all. Hoping you guys can help me out with what to expect. In 2010 while I was active duty I went to medical over what I thought was a potential hernia. They did an ultrasound and felt around but told me they didn't see anything and that if it continued to hurt come back. I got my honorable in January of 2011. A couple months ago, the pain occasionally still persisted so I filed a claim for a hernia/groin condition and they scheduled me within a few weeks. I just went to my appointment and the Dr. asked me if I had the hernia taken care of yet. I told him that I was never diagnose
  2. Hello, I would really appreciate some guidance on next steps. Please let me know if I forget any useful information. I had 2 items go to the BVA. I had a claim for tenosynovitis of right hand/wrist/forearm which was originally denied connection and the other issue was for scar. The BVA said my tenosynovitis was service connected so that was taken care of. The scar was remanded because of a incomplete c&p exam. Pretty sure when I filed NOD I also said I did not agree with the exam because I complained of scar pain and the examiner never mentioned it at all. So my init
  3. Hello, I was hoping to get a second opinion on a potential claim. While in service I had a radical tenosynovectomy which is service connected. I am also service connected for the scar from said surgery. That surgery caused a hernia on my forearm. The size of muscle coming through is about 2.5 inches long by about 1 inch wide. I was wondering if this should be a pretty straight forward claim or what I might need to consider or prepare for? I believe this claim would fall under 38 CFR § 4.73, Schedule of Ratings – Muscle Injuries, Diagnostic Code 5326. Se
  4. Hello, I have a CP exam coming up soon for my dispute over 0% rating for scar. Is it possible to get 10% effective the time of scar rating for a hernia? I have a large forearm hernia below scar that I was told can't really be fixed. Also what is a painful scar? After surgery there was 1 obvious adhesion at wrist that surgeon had to break by bending wrist back. I think I have more at base of thumb because it's enlarged and restricts motion but not enough to be rated under range of motion. However repeated use does cause pain where the surgery was and adhesions are scar tissue.
  5. Hello all, A bit about my situation. I was rated TDIU and recently filed for an increase on some issues that the BVA denied. I was increased from 10% to 40% each knee, and 10% to 20% for lower back. This put me in the 100% P&T threshold. I also filed for an increase with my Hiatal Hernia. Below is there reasoning for denying an increase of GERD. They list all but one contention that would need to be met, but what they fail to understand is I have constant arm/ shoulder/ upper chest pain from an AC separation which I am also service connected for. So when asked my symptoms I would have nev
  6. I would like to ask if any of you have a rating above 0% for a ventral hernia but were not prescribed a belt or truss. Thanks!
  7. Hello, first post here. I'm 30% since '98 for four unrelated 10% issues but am trying to service connect a recurring hernia issue I feel started AD. I had umbilical hernia corrected as an infant, and listed that on my military entrance exams and it was never an issue. I did almost 12yrs active duty, the last few years I had pains in right testical when lifting heavy objects and a few times in my SMR it's listed as 'possible abdominal hernia' or 'possible umbilical hernia' and the pain and bulge in area listed is even on my exit exam 1998 and original VA exam that year. After getting out t
  8. I have been vomiting with painful heartburn from hell resulting in multiple emergency room treatments over the past few months. I even spent one night in the hospital for observation. I am maxed out on anti-acid meds and tested negative for H.Pylori. Yesterday, I had an endoscopy and the results were as follows: - Hiatus hernia found in the stomach - Gastritis (two biopsies taken) I currently have a 10% rating for GERD (7346) due to 20+ years of NSAID treatment. I am considering requesting an increase. I have a feeling 30% is what I will get, so I am just asking for a second opinion f
