Sc For Female Issues


hupp42

Question

I am sure I am not the only one with questions regarding female related service connections and maybe this will help someone else too. Of course I have read the other post revealing other opinions regarding female service connected issues...

I will try to make this simple. I currently have an appeal case and attended my c&p exam this week. I had always had normal paps but when I got married I had high grade dysplasia w/hpv effect in 1998...I filed for SC for that in July of 08. They flat out denied it being service connected even tho the medical evidence is there... and I appealed of course, requesting DRO review...also adding cervical cancer/hysterectomy related to the hpv. Yes I am only 32 and it is young however, when the biopsy was done the cancer went beyond the margins so the most effective treatment.

I probably would not have filed for this but since Hpv is the leading cause of cervical cancer and in MY CASE resulted from this that was diagnosed in service I finally decided to file. Of course 10yrs ago was when HPV was just begining to come to light and its effects.

Anyway, I went this morning got the c&p report and his words are "Therefore, per the question posed, this veteran's HPV finding in service is most certainly related to the squamous cell carcinoma of the cervix/hysterectomy."

They removed cervix, uterus and partial of one ovary... why they did that hell only knows but i had a tumor on my ovary and they left part of an ovary UGH... which resulted in a tubo/ovarian abscess that nearly killed me because I thought they took my ovary and I thought it was my appendix. Ultrasound failed to detect an ovary but surgery report says they didn't take it all...SO...I dont know where that leaves me as far as ovaries are concerned.

So my question is if anyone knows... I am currently rated at 80%... 50 for depression, 10 for degenerative disc disease of the Lspine, 10 right knee surgical repair, 10 left knee surgical repair, 10 right hip bursitis, 10 left hip bursitis, and 10 for jaw dislocation/tmj

How might his affect my rating when its processed? and what maybe do I have to look forward to as far as back pay with the dates...seeing as its july of 2010!!

Hopefully I am posting in the correct thread....I appreciate all help and if that even means reposting on another thread to get some answers.

Thanks!

Hupp42,

i'm going through that same thing right now. I recently submitted my claim and it came back denied. They said it wasn't service connected. I'm getting very frustrated. My denial letter made absolutely no sense to me. It says that i have it, or had it while in the service, but it's not service connected. I had issues while i was out, and had to have 2 LEEPS done, and the Cold knife Cone, eventually I ended up having a hysterectomy in 2016. I could use some advice from anywhere.

I've researched other HPV cases and they ended up being 30% service connection.

Did you have your hysterectomy in the service?

No but I had the abnormal pap w/ the HPV finding in service which ultimately led to the cancer.

hupp,

I am moving your topic to the VA Claims/Benefits Research Forum as

it may get more attention and responses there.

Thanks... I am learning LOL

  • How to get your questions answered...

    question-001.jpeg

    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. Read the forums without registering, to post you must register it’s free. Register for a free account.

    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. Knowledgable 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 huge, 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 to:

    Post clear questions and then give background info on them.

    Examples:

    • A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine but claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • I was involved in 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 from your claim?” etc.

    Note:

    Your firsts posts on the board may be delayed before they show up, as they are reviewed, this process does not take long and the review requirement will be removed usually by the 6th post, though we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.

    This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before they hit the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims and this helps us do that.
