Anyone Know Anything About Flat Feet


Tower_Rat

Question

going to surgical evaluation in a month for flat feet. Im also getting ready to file a va claim for it. I know its not rocket science when they look at your feet and say "yup, there flat" What else do i need for it? just the Doctor reports? The general doc that looked at my feet said that they were aggrivated by military service.

Don't let anyone cut on your feet saying they will cure your flat feet. Foot surgeries often fail. They fix one thing and damage something else. Go to heelspurs.com. There are podiatrists who will talk to you about your feet on the message boards for free.

I am 30% Service Connected for Falt Feet and I would never consent to a VA operation on them.

First place the person operating would probably be someone who had not used a scapel on anything but dead bodies.

I am service connected for flat feet. The VAMC took x-rays, sent me home, 6 mo. later I was awarded 10%. I waited 29 or so years til I couldn't put up with pain in my feet anymore, went back, they took more x-rays and I was awarded 30% after I appealed there first decision. They then gave me orthodics and naproxen which is a pain killer. The naproxen bottle says (take with meals) up to 2 tablets per day as needed. I did that for about 3 years daily and the naproxen caused my GI bleed and watershed effect of the cervical cord. Be careful of all pain killers, the side effects can kill you.

Naproxen is a kidney burner also.

    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
