Question

My heart doctor indicated that I had the following conditions: Mitral Sclerosis, Enlarged Left Atrium, Diliated Aortic Root, and lack of blood circulation of lower extremities. I have taken an ECHO test during a C&P examination, but have not gotten the results. Could any of this be related to IHD?

Sounds like you have a Valve problem and an Aortic Root problem. I would be real concerned about fixing these problems. Have you ever had Remhmatic Fever?

I dont see this as IHD because it is VAlve Oriented.

J, I don't believe I did, but we never went to the doctor when I was a kid. Castrol Oil was the cure for everything in Harlan County. In fact, I can not recall the first time I ever saw a doctor.

VA's definition of IHD for VA claims purposes in is my Nov 20,2010 post here:

The best person to ask if you ave IHD (who can assess all of your cardio records)- is your doctor.

Papa, Berta is absolutely correct!! Ask your cardio doctor and if he/she says it is ask them to give you a letter as to how.

One question though are you dealing with a VA doctor or private cardio dr? The statement I am about to make I can not proof but I do not trust any VA doctor to back up anything that is going to help a vet!! Now that being said I want you to know I am 100% for my heart and almost died because the VA doc's said I did not have heart disease!

I used a private hospital when I had my heart attack and it was only 30 days after my heart exam by the VA so you can see I am BIAS!

I feel the only way to stay alive if you use the VA docs is to ask question and if you don't like their answers run like hell to a private hospital!!

Good luck to you!

And if this is a private Cardio doctor -have them fill out the IHD new C & P for private doctors here somewhere-and attach this medical statement along with your claim.

  • question-001.jpegLooking for Answers? Here are tips for finding the answers you seek.

     

    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. To post, you must register. Registration is free. You can register for a free account here.

     

    You can read the forums without registering.

     

    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 to:

     

    Post straightforward questions and then post background information.

     

    Examples:
     
    • 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.
    • I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
       
    • 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.
        • 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 from your claim?” etc.
