    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

Colonoscopy Results

Recommended Posts

Since no one ever bothered to call me with the results of this test, I went and got my records. The good news is no cancer. But I do have "Active Colitis". It just doesn't say which kind.

There is a copy in my records of a letter I was supposed to receive in the mail (might still get, who knows) that basically says..."You don't have cancer". But never mentions the colitis. Just says to call if I have questions and have another test in 10 years.


I had to get my records and get my own test results for all of my stool samples I took in as well...no one bothered to call me on those or my blood tests.

My f/u with my PCP isn't until 1 Oct. No f/u scheduled with the GI doc. Amazing.

No change in symptoms.

When you see your PCP 1 Oct, might they do a referral to GI ?

Glad your results came back with no showing of cancer.

That's good news, purple. I've had 2 colonoscopies and had a couple small polyps each time. So I have to go every 2-3 years. I think when your over fifty your supposed to have it every 5 years, if no polyps are found. So as they say your good to go...

If one of your parents dies of colon cancer, then they want you to have a colonoscopy done every five years. On my first one, they found one polyp, and it was sent away for testing - it was clear of cancer. The last one I have had, they didn't find any polyps, but said that there was some areas of possible minor diverticulosis, but nothing major to worry about.

Have you looked up diverticulosis? Because it can cause all kinds of symptoms.

Hope this helps,
