I wish we could say this will go fast-let's hope it does!

Sounds like they have everything they could have asked for as far as your med recs go.

DO you get SSDI? If so is it for anything SCed or potentially will be service connected?

Claim any other disabling conditions that the AO prostate cancer caused when it metastasized.

What is the 10% SC for?

The 10% was for heart condition which was two stent's. I did not make a clain IHD, but they it to me quick. They saw it in my records.

Have prostate cancer with having surgery, radiation, and hormornal treatments. My psa continues to rise after each treatment. My doctor is sending me to Sand Lake Imaging in Orlando to have a scan to find out where the cancer is exactly. He thinks it is in the illac chain of lymph nodes in the pelvic area. He says that radiation would be used and I could be cured. This is the best news I have had in a long time. I still receive 100% temporary for prostate cancer due to Agent Orange exposure.

Peace Cuchi, I was sent to MD Anderson in Houston. They did a Full scan and found that my cancer was in the illac chain of lymph nodes in the pelvic area. We might have two different types, and in my case i ask if there was any radition treatment since it was located . They said No! Because mine was a blood born cancer, it was in all Lymph nodes. The psa cancer cells was so small it was non detected in other area's. They could give me radiation treatment for the Pelvic area, but it would come in some other area. I hope and pray for your success!!!! We seen to have similar cases of Prostate cancer. Do you have any problem's with nerves, like numbness, burning in the hands and feet. This problem is getting worse. So IHD claim is that the same as Hypertension compensation?

Thanks for sevring!!!

"What is SSDI and Sced?"

SSDI Social Security Disability Insurance. If a vet gets SSDI this can often be critical info for any TDUI claim.

Sced Service connected. I made that up because I have typed out service connected probably a million times in the past 1o-20 years and I try to save typing time.

sorry -there is an acronym list here at hadit for all the initials we use.

    • 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.
