Hello: If you receive a hysterectomy while you are filing for disability through the VA, will it still count? I am out of the military. Thank you
Is there a deadline post separation that limits a veteran from filing for service connection for a hysterectomy?
Hello, both pregnancies occurred on active duty and during both I had fibroid tumors. The tumors reduced in size and didn't pose a problem immediately post delivery but created problems later that was not correlated at the time with fibroids. Post separation, i submitted a claim for the fibroid tumors and it was denied in April 2014 because of lack of documentation. I did not submit an appeal due to a busy life with new job and family. Approximately nine months ago, Sept 2014, I started having symptoms of what I thought were early menopause (unpredictable and long menstrual periods, and with lots of pain). I didn't do anything about it for months, thinking it would settle down during the menopause process. Finally, I had enough, went to a GYN who did an ultrasound and explained that the fibroids were back. As a result of the discomfort and constant blood loss, I decided to have a hysterectomy. I am working on submitting both the fibroids and hysterectomy for VA disability and wanted to tap your expertise on what you think may happen. Thanks All!
My question is about hysterectomy? If a female is granted service connect for total hysterectomy(removal of ovaries, uterus) then is she award 50 percent . or is it just service connect because she doe not have the problem anymore. Reddit
