Malpractice

Question

Quick question.

At my last C&P I managed to get my stroke service connected due to radation therapy for the treatment of throat cancer.

Do I need to look into a malpractice suit?

I probably would not go there unless there was something about the radiation treatment that violated good medical practice. This is a bag of worms not to open unless you really have a reason.

Radiation Therapy can result in many things - What was your reason for service connection? Why did the therapy cause the stroke? Those are the issues you must look at. Was the stroke due to malpratice or was it simply due to the fact that you received the therapy? Not enough info in your post to provide any insightful answers.

In answer to your question, they killed my thyroid gland with the radation treatments. They were negilent in keeping my thyroid levels under control.

After rethinking this, I'm ashamed of my self for posting this. I should be on my knees thanking these people for saving my life! Cancer kills big time!

WHAT WAS I THINKING !!!

Is that what you get 30 % for?

Was this an award under Section 1151?

Stroke can be a terrible unforeseen event of many procedures.

Have you checked out the Schedule of Ratings? to see if the stroke award is proper amount? I have never seen 30% award for CVA before- it is usually temp 100% and then residuals are rated-

    Tips on posting on the forums.

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery instead of ‘I have a question.
       
    2. Knowledgeable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title.
      I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
       
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, rambling introduction or story.
       
      Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph, there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.
     
    Leading too:

    exclamation-point.pngPost straightforward questions and then post background information.
     
    Examples:
     
    • Question A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    Rephrase the question: I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
     
    • Question B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
    Rephrase the question: I was involved in a traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?
     
    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial of your claim?”

    You’ve just been rated 100% disabled by the Veterans Affairs. After the excitement of finally having the rating you deserve wears off, you start asking questions. One of the first questions that you might ask is this: It’s a legitimate question – rare is the Veteran that finds themselves sitting on the couch eating bon-bons … Continue reading
