    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


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?

    • I filed for my mitral valve regurgitation heart disease secondary to a service-connected condition on 7-30-18. It was granted on 8-30-18. Since I filed for this heart valve issue and was awarded, can I still file for hypertension ? I have been seeing comments that you should file for hypertension first and file for heart disease as a secondary. Can I file for hypertension as a secondary to my heart disease ? I am alittle confused on this matter.

    • I am a 100% disabled veteran, At first I was super excited to find out I am getting retro pay for back benefits to 2006. But that was over 2 months ago. I been waiting and waiting and calling to ask them wheres my back pay. They first told me "one month" than I call again. The guy started reading a script of basically "we are malingering on paying you" type crap. I was wondering if there is any number I can call besides that 800-827-1000 number to inquire about my status. I don't know why its taken so long when there is specific information telling them from the judge that VA owes. 

      There was a remanded to see if I was eligible for IU (I get it now since 2014 im actually 90% with 10 of that been IU). I been on SS since 2004. Can Someone help me out? Thank you

    • You might have a 38 CFR 3.156 situation-

      meaning the VA might have considered your claim in 95/96 as "not well grounded" and failed to even get your STRs.Or they did get your STRs but never considered the specific entry you cited here.

      Lots of discussion under a search, of 38 CFR. 3.156 (a)(b) (c) ---here is a winner:



        • Thanks
