Question

I'm in the process of being diagnosed with the symptoms for Leukemia (yes I know we should not research and diagnose ourselves), so far I've had a tread mill test. That was normal and am know scheduled for a CAT scan. Any advice, suggestions or information will be greatly appecerated.

I certainly hope the diagnosis is not leukemia.

The AO presumptive regs cover CLL (Chronic Leucocyte leukemia and Hairy Cell B leukemia.

There is a US CAVC case which was recently remanded to the BVA as the veteran claimed he had a subform of CLL and had medical evidence suggestive of the association to CLL.

Someone asked me to offer suggestions to the case and all I could offer was to tell the vet to get an IMO that is strong enough (from an oncologist) to raise the claim to the BOD level (Benefit of DOubt)

with a full medical rationale that his type of leukemia in fact was subset of CLL. Which is quite possible.

If you do get a diagnosis of leukemia please let us know exactly what the medical terminology is for it.

Then I can check into the status of this other vet's case to see what the VA did as to his attempt to prove subset.

and post his CAVC case here.

Thanks, I cannot thank you enough.

So far I've been through a tread mill test. Had a tube stuck down into my gut and one the other way (if you get my drift), so far every thing is good. I still need to complete a few more tests and as soon as I know more I'll post it.

Berta thank you.

I hope all test news is OK!

With 80% now, you are not far from TDIU paid at the 100% rate.The decision you got when you got up to 80% should have stated why they did not consider you for TDIU.

Are you still employed?

If not do you get SSDI solely for the 80% conditions?

Have you ever formally applied for TDIU with the 21-8940 form?

    • 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:
