    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

Well, I kinda fell off the face of the earth for a few days. From Tuesday-Saturday I've been in the Cardiac Intensive Care Unit at Miami Valley Hospital here in Dayton. Friday I had to have a pacemaker put in. Came home yesterday.

My heart rate kept dropping into the 30s and I kept passing out...I called the squad on Tuesday, I kept passing out in the squad and the ER and I woke up to find myself hooked up to the crash cart--that's scary as hell!!

At first the docs thought it was that the VA had over-medicated me so they waited until all of my meds were out of my system, but my heartrate still was dropping in the 30s and very irregular. I told them that I had been telling the VA docs about my symptoms for some time; but they weren't very concerned...the real cardiologists were pissed. Friday they decided I needed a pacemaker ASAP or things weren't going to be good.

So I'm home now....very sore....still kinda tired, have lots of restrictions for awhile.

I go back to the real cardiologist next week for f/u. I refuse to allow the VA docs to have anything to do with my cardio care anymore. I will get very, very ugly with them!!!!!!

So, that's where I've been in case anyone wondered........

I didn't realize you were gone but I'am glad you are back. I don't blame you, I wouldn't let the va have anything to do with the cardio problem.

I have been wondering where you were.

Sounds like a scary adventure.

If this has caused you additional damage, hospital bills, ambulance, etc....

after you recover and regain your strength an 1151 claim might be in-order.

Glad your back and doing better.

OMGoodness! Purple, I'm glad you are still with us!

You might want to file a VA, 1151 Claim once you are feeling better. I hope your family will look after you until you have your strength back.

We missed you. ~Wings

    • Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask
      Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask. Chris Attig - Veterans Law Blog 

      <br style="color:#000000; text-align:start">How to Hire an Attorney For Your VA Claim or Appeal Free Guidebook available on the Veterans Law Blog

      I got an email the other day from a Veteran.  It had 2 or 3 sentences about his claim, and then closed at the end: “Please call me. So-and-so told me you were the best and I want your help.”

      While I appreciate the compliments, I shudder a little at emails like this.  For 2 reasons.

      First, I get a lot of emails like this.  And while I diligently represent my clients – I often tell them we will pursue their claim until we have no more appeals or until we win – I am most assuredly not the best.

      There are a LOT of damn good VA Disability attorneys out there.  (Most, if not all, of the best are members of the National Organization of Veterans Advocates…read about one of them, here)

      Second, I don’t want Veterans to choose their attorney based on who their friend thought was the best.  I want Veterans to choose the VA Disability attorney who is BEST for their case.

      In some situations, that may be the Attig Law Firm.

      But it may also be be Hill and Ponton, or Chisholm-Kilpatrick, or Bergman Moore.  Or any one of the dozens of other attorneys who have made the representation of Veterans their professional life’s work.

      There are hundreds of attorneys that are out there representing Veterans, and I’m here to tell you that who is best for your friend’s case may not be the best for your case.

      How do you Find the Best VA Disability Attorney for your Claim?

      First, you have to answer the question: do you NEED an attorney?

      Some of you don’t...
