it looks like you are heading for a 10% rating. the doctor checked "occasional" bowel disturbances. He would need to check "near constant distress" for a 30% rating. He did say it impacted your ability to work which might help.

The last line about further testing is generic VA garb I think.

Thanks for looking I sent in all the paper work from my Pvt doc but he did not get it at that time. where my doc said it was chronic and the c&p examer was a Radiologist when my doctor is a GI specialists. I also told him that the paper work was at the RO i hope they look at everything .

one thing I did not see is a place for the C&P examiner to state whether or not it is service related. I didn't think it was a big deal because you are a gulf war vet and IBS is presummed to be service connected.

Good Luck.

my last exam only lasted about 15 minutes. it was ortho and related to my IU claim. the reason it was brief was because the doctor was unable to do a physical exam as i am wheel chair bound and there were no nurses on the premises to help me stand up long enough for him to complete his exam. he apologized to me for wasting my time and told me to bug the heck out of regional to get this claim adjudicated. i mention this because a brief exam isn't necessarily a bad thing.

    • So I've been in a basic power chair (Q6 Edge) since 2015. Late 2016 was also fitted for a TiLite TRA manual (also keeping powerchair). 2017 was approved by Tampa VA for clothing allowance for lower. 

       

      Moved to Battle Creek VA late 2017. Since then was issued new basic powerchair (Quickie P222-SE) to replace broken Q6. Still use TiLite also now can lightly ambulate with Forearm crutches.

      Use crutches 50%, and both chairs 25% each.

      Was approved for 1 clothing allowance this year for forearms crutches for upper.

       

      Was denied 2nd for chair/lower that was awarded last year because Chief Prosthetic states "powerchair takes precedence, you were issued that so you are to use only the powerchair".

      Also powerchair has gap between seat and leg mounts where clothes do get caught and tear. Clinician was I'll put it back in but"power chairs dont get clothing allowances", and "any review or appeal will only come back to me"

      I was approved for powerchair/custom manual combo clothing allowance last year; How do I word an appeal for the lower clothing allowance this year?

      My local DAV rep at the VA has no clue on how to handle this.

    • Thank you.  I’m not exactly sure of how I will file it.  If it is secondary to TBI, would it be pyramiding?
    • I understand what you are saying. Does it sometimes take awhile to update the VA letters and disabilities info online after it closes.....in my case on a Saturday ? Some on other posts on here says no and some say yes so I'm just curious about the inconsistency regarding that if it is yes and no.
