  • Can a 100 percent Disabled Veteran Work and Earn an Income?

    employment 2.jpeg

    You’ve just been rated 100% disabled by the Veterans Affairs. After the excitement of finally having the rating you deserve wears off, you start asking questions. One of the first questions that you might ask is this: It’s a legitimate question – rare is the Veteran that finds themselves sitting on the couch eating bon-bons … Continue reading

I also have a question, having BA is not a joke. Its been 4 months now since I was diagnosed of BA. At first I thought I have severe migraine, but it was wrong.  I've been taking my maintenance for 4 months but it doesn't work at all. So, I am making my own research about herbal and when I came across this article http://www.ilovegrowingmarijuana.com/face-off-og/, says it can heal severe pain like I'm experiencing now and it is much less expensive compared to what I have now. Does anyone had tried this? I appreciate any kinds of advice.

What type 0f aneurism is it?

This is a long read and the vet was denied for higher aortic aneurism but gets 60% for it.

http://www.va.gov/vetapp10/Files6/1046376.txt

This concerns me:

I have 10% for Peripheral Neuropathy

10% for CAD

10% for Hypertension

What do they attribute the PN to?

Are these disabilities stemming directly from your service (as compared to any presumptive disability?)

How old is that rating for everything?

Has any doctor explained to you what has caused this aneurism?

Have you had any recent ECHO done?

If it is an aortic aneurism ,the first line of this study might help get it service connected as secondary to the CAD.

Still this will surely need a strong medical opinion too but this is possible.

Also it is possible, per this article from Mayo clinic

http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/high-blood-pressure/HI00062

that your SC hypertension could have been a factor in causing the aneurism.

I am not a doctor but feel you should definitely file the claim and ask them for increase in rating for the CAD and the HBP as if either one (I would claim both as cause of this) caused this, it is a secondary condition that would warrant either higher CAD rating or separate rating for the aneurism.

Aneurisms can be treated successfully in many cases so that too would influence any rating.

This will take medical evidence of the link from your SC CAD and/or HBPto the aneurism but this is possible and might even be determined already in your clinical records by your treating doctor.

I went back to an older post you had here:

"Would not Nehmir and Agent Orange be a seperate claim as I had filed back in 2000 for CAD & Heart Disease."

Nehmer would only kick in if you had been denied a claim prior to the date of the CAD award you got and,in fact, the award was for ischemic heart disease which I am assuming here is what you have.

"My Doctors report shows Unstable Angina

Coronary Artery Disease

S/P Bypass graft

Mixed Hyperlipidema

Hypertension

Injection Fraction of 52%

Heart attack in July 4th 1998 with a five way bypass

Heart attack in 2009 and in Mather Hospital for 4 days.

They have ordered another C& P by a NPT for January 7, 2011."

Can you scan and post here the results of the C & P of Jan 2011?(cover personal stuff)

How did you file the present claim?

as to the wording of it.....

I am assuming the bypass surgery was due to atherosclerosis (plaque )? and the hyperlipedimia

Did the C & P exam of Jan 2011 reveal an Ejection fraction different from the 52%?

    • 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.

    • Question About Temporary 100% Rating for Hospitalization
      Hey all. I've searched all over the net, and read the CFR on the topic. I will be going to PTSD Dom inpatient treatment here soon. I read that it's possible to get 100% temp for hospitalization. However, the CFR says that PTSD Dom does not qualify, but then in the exceptions it says that it may. Does anyone know if I will qualify for temp 100%. I will be in there for almost 2 months. Here is the CFR code, and the part regarding the matter-

       

      Do not apply the provisions of 38 CFR 4.29 when a Veteran

      is treated as a resident in a State Veterans’ home is currently receiving a total rating for the disability for which hospitalization was required is a resident in a VA domiciliary program, or is a participant in a live-in/work out program being utilized to facilitate transition to community living.

       

      Exceptions:
      Hospitalization in excess of 21 days for an SC disability in a medical facility located at a State Veterans’ home may entitle the Veteran to hospitalization benefits. Veterans are entitled to hospitalization benefits for treatment in excess of 21 days in a day hospital program if the treatment given is consistent with hospital care for a SC disability even though they are concurrently required to be housed in a VA domiciliary.

      The exceptions part is confusing me. Does anyone know if I am entitled to a temporary 100% rating? I'm currently rated for the same reason I'm going inpatient.
