C & P Exam For Back / Shoulder



i had a C & P Exam for my back and shoulders at the VAMC. i requested a copy of the exam and rec'd it in about 10 days. It is very well written with degrees of movement as associated with the exam. The only problem is the nurse Practitioner didn't measure anything. all my measurement are by sight. so to make a long story short....she said, In my opinion this injury is "less than not" due to his one time complaint of back pain in 1978. she also stated it has been 28 years following discharge..

Ironic as to the 28 years as my knee was service connected after 28 years...

so am i out of the race with the statement of "less than not"?

Forgot to add that i had a Nexus statement from my doctor stating connecting this disability to my SMR's...

I would say it is probably going to be denied at the RO and DRO level. Then fill out your form 9 and appeal to BVA. You'll have plenty of time to get your ducks in a row (more doctor nexus statements) and hopefully, BVA will give you the benefit of the doubt and award SC. Don't give up the fight!
