Ischemic Heart Disease Related To Agent Orange

Question

I am currently rated at 100% for Prostate Cancer (100%), Diabetes (20%), Neropathy (10%), Charcot Foot (10%), all Agent Orage related. On Sunday I had a mild heart attack and had two stents emplaced in heart artery. Question is what do I gain by applying for additional disability for Isochemin Heart Disease?

Because of the heart attack and the stent placement operation you will be grated a 100% temporary for your heart. Then just like the prostate you will be examined to see how much damage was done to your heart.

I would file right away and get this in the works. You do not know what lies ahead for you and your family. If something happens and you die of heart complications your wife would be eligible for benefits.

Go to the Agent Orange forum here, there is a new website called Fast track that the VA is starting up just for the 3 new conditions related to herbicide exposure. Sign up there when the site becomes active and you are on your web.

Good luck to you!

"Question is what do I gain by applying for additional disability for Isochemin Heart Disease?"

Another reason is if they would possibly re-evaluate the residuals you have from prostate cancer and then could determine they will lower the 100% SC you have now for that.

Best to ask you doctor if this is ischemic heart disease.

Not all CAD is ischemic.

If you google non-ischemic heart disease plenty of info will pop up-as to the different types of CAD.

    • I would like to meet other Hadit members who live in Michigan.  We have at least two major VA Hospitals (Battle Creek, Ann Arbor).  Or maybe you go to the the John Dingell in Detroit.  

      I like Ann Arbor.  I like the fact that most of the doctors there are also at the UM Hospital.  I don't like how uickly they seem to turn over though.

    • Really?
      I am confused.  A few days ago I spoke to a person at a VARO who said if I die from something other than service-connected my husband gets zero, zilch, squat.  Hmmmmmm, it seems the rules change willy-nilly...I have been rated 100% P & T for over 10 years, MS is static, and I am 56 years of age.

      Can a fellow Veteran shed a light on this?

      Thank you.
