Mutation Of Prostate Cancer Thanks To Ao

Question

I been going to MD Anderson cancer center in Houston. This place is city in it self and over 22,000 cancer outpatience everyday and even has nice hotel and bar :rolleyes: . I Started going to MD a year ago and the DOC's explain to me about psa cell's and its mutation cell's. From the psa cancer cell it can and will mutation to another type cancer like brain, lung, bone, bladder, etc. Thanks again AO!:angry: It move from the prostate to the Lymph nodes which there are 1000's of LN thru out the body. If you do not have a prostate and your psa is going up. Seek help!The androgen deprivation therapy shot work for me for about six months, it should of lasted for years in most case. Oh but not me :wacko: . My psa cancer is mutating to another form and it's to small see. They started a different hormone to hope it will slow it down.

My point is to all VET's please get your prostate check every year.

PS that goes for all Vet's!

SP4:

Thanks for the heads up I am sure it could help another Veteran. MD Andersen is one of the best so I believe that you are getting good treatment. My prayers for your recovery.

Been without mine now since June 15 2009 due to Agent Orange. It really changes your life and the way you do things. It is good to know these things because you do not hear a lot from the VA. I will keep a close check since you let us know about the mutation even after the cancer surgery and they say you are cancer free.

I so much ask! I feel that change in the way I do thing and it not good. I hope you are seeing somebody beside Va. They act like it's ok to have little PSA. VA have said don't remove prostate with high counts. WRONG. MY MD Anderson Doctor's said if you don't have a prostate then .1 or .2 psa count means that you have possible cancer and you should watch it every 6 to 8 weeks. You should seek a doctor that specialist in Urology or your primary doctor for psa test.

    • So I've been in a basic power chair (Q6 Edge) since 2015. Late 2016 was also fitted for a TiLite TRA manual (also keeping powerchair). 2017 was approved by Tampa VA for clothing allowance for lower. 

       

      Moved to Battle Creek VA late 2017. Since then was issued new basic powerchair (Quickie P222-SE) to replace broken Q6. Still use TiLite also now can lightly ambulate with Forearm crutches.

      Use crutches 50%, and both chairs 25% each.

      Was approved for 1 clothing allowance this year for forearms crutches for upper.

       

      Was denied 2nd for chair/lower that was awarded last year because Chief Prosthetic states "powerchair takes precedence, you were issued that so you are to use only the powerchair".

      Also powerchair has gap between seat and leg mounts where clothes do get caught and tear. Clinician was I'll put it back in but"power chairs dont get clothing allowances", and "any review or appeal will only come back to me"

      I was approved for powerchair/custom manual combo clothing allowance last year; How do I word an appeal for the lower clothing allowance this year?

      My local DAV rep at the VA has no clue on how to handle this.

    • Thank you.  I’m not exactly sure of how I will file it.  If it is secondary to TBI, would it be pyramiding?
    • I understand what you are saying. Does it sometimes take awhile to update the VA letters and disabilities info online after it closes.....in my case on a Saturday ? Some on other posts on here says no and some say yes so I'm just curious about the inconsistency regarding that if it is yes and no.
