Ed Nexus

Question

Do you think this is a good nexus letter for ED:

In April 2009 his doctor wrote: "The clinical records from the VA clearly state that Mr. XXXX developed parotitis after visiting his brother in Virginia who had mumps."

"A short time thereafter, the clinical records document left orchitis and the patient developed left testicular atrophy, a well known potential complication of mumps. Mr. XXXX later developed impotence at a relativey young age. It is my medical opinion that the testicular atrophy caused by the mumps contributed to a premature testosterone deficiency and immpotence."

Vet wears a patch (Androderm) for low testosterone and takes Vardenafil.

Is this good enough to get ED service connected.

How could you consider this service connected? I am lost. This has nothing to do with his military service. Geeze this is truly an example of how hard its getting out there. Does he have any other issues related to the military or caused by his service? Even if the military treated him for it while he was in service does not make it service connected. Def donot turn that letter in because if you read again it flat out says its not military related.

Visiting his brother and catching the mumps would not quailify as a service induced injury. You next a nexus connecting the injury or disease to his militay service !!

He was on leave from the service when he developed parotitis. Shortly thereafter at USAF Hospital, Chanute AFB, the clinical records document left orchitis and the patient developed left testicular atrophy, a well known potential complication of mumps. Mr. XXXX later developed impotence at a relativey young age Shouldn't that qualify him for SC.

He is SC for left knee injury at 60%, residuals of cervical spine condition, secondary to left knee injury 20%, left thigh atrophy secondary to left knee injury 10%, right knee condition secondary to left knee injury 10% which gives him a combined rating of 80%. He just been granted TDIU P&T.

Charleese,

Thanks - I now remember his recent grant.

What would be the nexus of his ED to active duty or a nexus to a

SC disability ?
