I cant determine from your post if she is eligible for an extensive of the Temp 100%-or if,in fact, she has received some temp 100% comp.

These are the regulations she has to fit into -to meet both 100% temp and extended convalescnce compensation:

"A total rating will be granted following hospital discharge,

effective from the date of hospital admission or outpatient

treatment and continuing for a period of 1, 2, or 3 months from

the first day of the month following such hospital discharge or

outpatient release if the hospital treatment of the service-

connected disability resulted in: (1) surgery necessitating at

least one month of convalescence; (2) surgery with severe

postoperative residuals such as incompletely healed surgical

wounds, stumps or recent amputations, therapeutic immobilization

of one major joint or more, application of a body cast, or the

necessity for house confinement, or the necessity for continued

use of a wheelchair or crutches (regular weight bearing

prohibited); or (3) immobilization by cast, without surgery, of

one major joint or more. Following the temporary total

disability rating, the disability will be rated by the

appropriate schedular evaluation. 38 C.F.R. § 4.30 (2010)."

"The total rating will be followed by an open rating reflecting

the appropriate schedular evaluation. A total rating may be

extended as follows: (1) extensions of 1, 2, or 3 months may be

made beyond the initial 3 months under all three provisions

identified above; and (2) extensions of 1 or more months up to 6

months beyond the initial 6 months period may be made under only

the "surgery with severe postoperative residuals" and

"immobilization by cast" provisions. See 38 C.F.R. § 4.30(b)."

Sameo to us -They (VA) have 38 CFR ,38 USC, and M21-1- but so do we.

I was researching this and came across this topic.

How and who do you file this with?

From the time you submit it how long does it take to get a finalization answer?
