Increase For L-foot

Rate this question

Question

I had a C&P on my L-foot back in September and still have not received a decision as of yet and I am a little concerned being its going on 6 months. I did have a DRO hearing over a month ago and I figure I still have a few months to go on that. My question is, is there any thing I can do to check in to this and see why this has not been rated I thought they may be waiting to do it all together but after 6 months you really get tired of guessing. Thanks for your help,,,,,, Yog

Was your exam for drop foot due to your spine disability??

May be the DRO needs to complete his review and issue his decision, then may be Rating Board will get your CP exam. I was always told that only one VARO section can work a file at a time.

I had foot surgry and tons of problems with it, but my VA podiatrist did suggest it may have mostly due to my back and radiating pain to the foot, how ever I have a scar that gets raw and opens up from time to time.. It feels over 5 months is a long time to rate my claim....

just send an iris and ask for a update on the status of your foot claim. It most likely got suspended, pending a outcome of the appeal. Once the appeal is settled, they will go back to working the claim for "increase." Mine is exactly the opposite, in that they suspended my appeal in order to work my TDIU claim, even though I filed the appeal two months earlier.

Yeah, I'll give this a try. I am also wondering whats up with my DRO Hearing it was over a month ago and I haven't heard crap'ola. I was suppose to be sent to some C&P's and here I am once again stuck in limbo wondering what the hell is going on. I spoke with my VSO and he said the VARO was trying to catch up on hearings. My hearing was 5 months over due and for some reason I don't think they are going to rate it, I feel they are going to wait it out since I have current medical evidence that would let them rate my clam now. Ii is a wham Jammer I sewed them up pretty good with the current evidence and they may just waiting till they will have to up date the records and then send me to C&P's a way of getting a round Dr shopping. The Mental Health eval C&P the sent me back in Jan 07 reeked of Dr. shopping the way the doctor screwed up the report so bad the DRO didn't even what to talk about it, yes that's right he tried to skip it but he finally told me they were throwing it out because the doctor screw it up. I was thinking yeah right he was suppose to screw me good with the "Borderline personality Disorder" and saw me off at the knee's so I would have no chance of winning but the report was so bad it read like a bad set up. When I started in to it to dismantle it he was ok, ok I'll give you that (we were being taped) I said you'll give me what my stressor? He shaked is head to affirm yes and I looked at the recorder and at him and said so your giving me my stressor? he said yes and didn't like it. Let me tell you people these folks are up to no good, he didn't want to say it on tape and didn't like it when I made him and when I got my trans script it was edited to iron out there screw ups as if I did a wonderful job and I didn't leave his JSRRC specialist enough info to track down my stressor, when in fact he solely granted me my stressor due to my commanders letter all that thanking me crap never happened. It also stated he said we got your JSRRC letter and it looks like you could have been in the area, boy if he'd said that I would have laid in to him, NO SIR I WAS THERE!!!, again something he never said but boy did they use that DRO Hearing as a opetunity to smooth the huge errors out. Again I worry about this foot thing they are crooked as a dogs hind leg, The VARO proactive in helping a combat vet develope a claim? my ass..Yog
