So I started my "Fully Developed Claim" 02/08/2019 had my VA Comp and Pen Exam 03/18/2019 . My original completion date was 08/05/2019. Then after my Exam 05/03/2019. This is my story I've injured both knees, both feet and back while serving In the Army in 2017. progressively my back gave out on me. Now I'm young 25 years, can't work and didn't know about my options until just recently. Lucky for me I was within my year of separation so I got a VSO to work with me and my claim. Still waiting if it's an approval or denial, however today Ebenefits updated status from "Pending of Decision" to "Pending Decision Approval. With a new estimated date 04/30/2019. What happens next. Will I know I'm approved before notification in the mail?
I wanted to know what's the max for a total knee replacement. Right now I'm at 20% on my left knee, and I have just been told that I need a total knee replacement from Ortho Doctor at the VA. I here to many things like you get 100% (Temp) for 1 year, plus you can only max out at 30% total, which means they would just add 10% to my 20% to max it out as 30% for a total knee replacement. Thanks for any information.
