    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

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,

    • 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...
