  • 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

20 Years Of Ptsd

Question

I was stabbed while on TAD to a recruiting center. I was stabbed and nearly killed by 3 gang bangers. My records show my scars and and private private hospital name but nothing about the damage. I had a transfusion and 15 ft of intestine redacted as a result and I dont have the records to show it anymore.

I was in CPT but I have a hard time rehashing the trauma as it makes me angrier and angrier. My question is, I have been seen by a shrink who has put me provasin. Is this effective medicine?

Also I am very paranoid of the VA and docs in general. I did see my GAF was 45. I got my records to see what was being put down in them. i found them to contain 1/2 statements and clerks making medical statements about my "anger".

I am in a NOD for a knee replacement. I had to get my civilian doctor to do it because the VA denied the 4 entrys of knee trauma because the xrays didnt show anything. The PTSD is going to be both PTSD and depression i think. Is there such a rating for both depression and ptsd?

I dont have the records to show it anymore.

What do you mean "anymore" ?

What kind of records were they...service..private Dr..?

Do you have the hospital records for surgery?

Have you filed any other claims besides the NOD?

What are you SC 30% for?

Just a few thoughts, perhaps a police report could be obtained. Also court records if this went to court. How long would the military keep the recruiting station reports if they made a report. (I am thinking TAD is temporary duty) at the Recruiting Station. I would think that a District Attorney or Prosecutor would have had the medical information and damages. I hope that you will be able to prove your claim. Also, I have a friend that was getting 30 year old private hospital records sent to the VA. The VA requested it from the hospital and stated that they received it.

I am in a nod for my knee rePlacement and PTSD. The event haPpened and they are not deny the stabbing. I am 10% for the 12 in scar

I am 10 for my shoulder and 10 for the shoulder scar

My cvso wrote my original claim wrong. He put mental health instead of PTSD

I have been to intake and was recommended for treatment. It is in my record that it is sc. I just need a formal C&P for it

My original records were in a civ hospital. They only kept records for 7 years in the 80's

At this point the money doesn't matter. I just want to be better so I ca hold a job longer than 2 years

"VA denied the 4 entrys of knee trauma because the xrays didnt show anything"

Walter I had the same problem on my knee as well, years back. The xrays showed nothin about any dx's of why my kneecap would pop out of joint. I kept telling my Dr to get me a referral for an MRI cause xrays doesn't give a good picture of the soft tissues in the body. Of course when you deal an HMO ins. their very stingy putting money out for their patients. When time came to have a chance to change ins. co's I chose BCBS. I was happy I did cause it didn't take a whole lot of talking to get the MRI I been beggin for. That's when I found out the meniscus was badly torn. Long story short, I'm now 60% SC for the knee.

According to your post, va denied your claim due to the xrays was negative.

Have you since obtained any MRI's that showed positive for any injuries?

Was there anything else about your knee that was mentioned in the Reasons and Bases section in your denial letter other than the xrays, that needs to be looked at?

    • 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.
