  1. Hi All, Me again... another few questions that hopefully someone can shed some insight on. Over the last few months, as I've gotten deeper into the VA medical side, they have talked about a polytrauma referral, basically saying it could be helpful in me getting to a better place. I was involved in an incident and sustained a significant concussion. I agreed to the referral, and had an MRI that did not show any abnormalities other than something with sinuses. I'm now scheduled for a neuropsych exam. I'm not sure what all that entails, and I can't seem to find much "meat" of what polytrauma is about, other than kind of marketing info that it's "good". So the questions: Does anyone have any experience with poly-trauma, what it is, is it helpful etc? It is worth following up on and if not, are there any consequences to cancelling it out? Has anyone had any experience with poly-trauma evals affecting ratings? This may just be in my head (and probably is), but it's starting to feel like things with VA medical are just data collection for VA rating side, to look to show why a veteran is over-rated (rating is too high). I'm just not feeling good about how it seems the rating side of VA can access my medical records whenever they want. Thoughts from the group? *BTW... I am very thankful for everyone putting up with me, and continuing to hang in there with me.
  2. Folks: Does anyone know of a doctor that specializes in Explosion or more specifically Blast/Wave related diagnosis and injuries? One of the problems that I'm facing is that I got to CP exams for "Residuals of Explosions" and none of the doctors have a clue to either diagnose or treat such injuries and it's frustrating. Frankly, since OEF/OIF there should be plenty of doctors that have seen these conditions. So, if anyone has come across anyone in the medical community that treats this, please let me know or best, please provide the contact information if you have someone that can help.....
