What disease are you service-connected for? What percentage?

Is the gastric bleeding already service-connected;

OR is the bleeding secondary to (the result of) your SC illness?

Did the tretament you recieved aggravate your SC disease?

Just a few questions ;-)

Sorry you've been going through some bad times.

The effective date for your increase should be the date you were hospitalized. The fact you were in the hospital can be a claim for an increase by itself. It is an informal or implied claim for an increase. However, you have to claim it or the VA will just ignore their responsibility.

they granted me service connection for peptic ulcer , and then for some reason they cant explain why i had a bleeding problem from the ulcers which they couldnt explain i was hospitalized for 6 days hooked up to all kind of i-vs and given all kinds of tests afterwards i was told to apply for an increase for the bleeding ulcer or upper gi bleed which was directly caused by the ulcer getting worse or agrivated i lost 40 pounds during my stay but they were well trained and i was in great hands i am at 60% after getting 50% for chronic obstructive sleep apnea which i was diagnosed having during my time in and it got worse after leaving service . i was just courious as to what % they would give for me being hospitalized and the ulcer getting worse the initial award for the peptic ulcer was 20% which explains how i got the 60% they still havent ruled on my asbestos exposure even though they now acknowledge it is do to my being exposed to asbestos during active duty thanks for your quick response and always being there even if there is no answer your being there shows were not alone

    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?”
