What Do You Think My % May Be

Question

I finally received the Draft Narsum, I was just hoping for some input from you guys since you have been here before. My 2 Medically unacceptable things are PTSD, Lumber spondylosis, Failed back syndrome. I had 2 back surgeries within the past 1 1/2 and my spine is still not fused together (25%), theyalso replaced 3 disc. I have other little issues but Im not concerned with them. Do you guys think that with the Diagnosis below plus my back I will be medically retired. Ive got 12 years in and 2 depolyments

axis1: PTSD-309.81

axis2: none-799.9

axis3: refer to medical

axis4:moderate-severe(pain, familial, occupational, health, transition

axisV: 55

I would appreciate any feedback, I a little nervous. Dont like the idea of my future out of my hands so to say

PLEASE, every issue you have you need to be concern with it now. no, matter how small, especially if you are still on active duty. Get check-out and start making a copy of your medical records.

If you ar medical re-tired will you be a 100% disable from VA.

Welcome to Hadit. Your medical evaluation should get you a medical retirement but I don;t know how the Military looks at this.

Good Luck

The thing I don't know is if you would get over 30% and military retirement pension or just medical discharge with pay. Either way you will probably get more from the VA when and if you get 100%. You have 2 conditions the military says are the reasons you can't stay in the AF. That is all they consider and rate you on for military retirement. I don't know the AF criteria for those disabilites. Somebody here does.

Thanks for the feedback, I must have skipped over entering my rank when I set up the account, no way Im a E-2. Oh well got to letgo of the rank at some point. I have put in claims for all the other little things only reason I said I wasnt concerned with them is cause right now Im only concerned with getting retired. I like this website alot it has great information. Glad I stumbled upon it.

The PEB forum suggests that the Draft Narsum can be amended if it is not accurate.

    • Type 1 Diabetes recent onset!
      I was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in September 2017 OUT OF NOWHERE.

      i am a Navy Reservist and deployed in later 2009 to mid 2010 and again later 2014 to mid 2015; had a 2 year recall between those deployments.  

      Only healthcare received since commissioning in 2008 was from the Navy and no issues EVER.

      insulin dependent and have dietary restrictions and in a non deployable status.

      VA denied initial claim due to Type 1 not showing on active duty and now appealing.

      Anyone with successful experience getting a rating with my circumstances?  I live in Upstate New York.

    • Agent Orange Kadena Afb Okinawa
      I am looking for anyone who was on Kadena AFB, Okinawa or .Chanute AFB, IL. My dad was there from Oct. 68-April 70. He has ichemic heart disease, diabetes which has resulted in the amputation of his right leg below the knee and peripheral neuropathy. We were denied in 2002 AMVETS filed a claim on his behalf for heart condition, diabetes and back problems. I refiled in December 2011 and have just received the claim statements and medical release forms. I am familiar with filling out this paper work because my husband is a combat veteran of Iraqi Freedom. I have been reading articles from the Japan times and I am a member of the Agent Orange Okinawa facebook page. Another thing that helps make my dad's case is that he was on Chanute AFB, IL and it is on the EPA Superfund list and has PCBs/Pesticides and Dioxins/Furans listed as ground and water contaminants. I welcome any advice, tips or articles that I may have missed in my own research.

    • Appeal granted and closed.
      My appeal was granted and closed on November 9.  I got an unofficial notification from the DAV on November 15 stating "appeal granted with an evaluation of 30%" which is great!  My question is this:  How long until I get the official notification from the va? Nothing on ebennies has updated since the appeal closed. Appeal is now in historical and just says complete and at originating va office. I understand no one knows va timelines to a tee but a general timeline would be great.  Thank you all! Hope you have a Merry Christmas!

       

      Edit:  This was my first time appealing and it was a VBA grant.
