Rvn Bluewater Vet And Ao Prostrate Cancer/ptsd



  • Moderator

Berta, I have a challenge. I am helping a fellow Vet whpo has had Surgury for prostrate Cancer. He also has Hypertension, ( Since Service) PTSD, and wort of all an Anurysm ( SECONDARY TO HTN)

I am doing the documets for him and walking him through the system.

He has the boots on the ground in Viet Nam as the record says he made numerous trips to Denang to retrieve Dead Bodies to put in the reefer on board the ship. Thus his PTSD claim.

Under Nehmer, What should the effective dates be for the Cancer, PTSD and Hypertension.

The Anyurysm should be 100 percent as it is measured very often and may be inoperable due to the location. If operable mortality rate is over 70 percent.

This man still works despite having a 5 lb weight carry limit.

Please advide, If you have spacifice, Please ffel free to PM or Email me.

Unless he was denied by VA in a prior decision that predates the Prostate cancer regs-

and the prostate cancer was rated as NSC on the rating statement-his EED will be the date of his claim for all of these disabilities.

If the HTN is due to the prostate cancer (by medical evidence) there will not be problem getting that SCed or the PTSD.And the anyerism-if directly due to the HTN-by medical evidence if HTN is service connected or to the prostate cancer.

The Nehmer decision in this case only applies to his prostate cancer.

And what I see here is that -if this is his initial claim the retro will be to the date of this claim.

    Have Questions? Get Answers.

    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.
    • 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
