Residuals


Slowlane

Question

I'm currently receiving 100% schedular for larynx cancer Agent Orange. I will be reevaluated soon and "Rated on residuals".

I'm wondering how much these residuals amount to?

1. Scars from "T" flap radical neck surgery.

2. Loss of Sternocleidomastoid muscle.

3. Loss of Spinal Accessory nerve.

4. Loss of right jugular vein.

5. Hoarseness.

6. Loss of Thyroid gland (still there but fried) and on meds for life.

7. Permanent Tinnitus from Chemo.

8. Peripheral Neuropathy.

9. Loss of Saliva glands.

10. Depression from cancer treatment.

11. Hearing loss.

12. Constipation.

13. Major Range of motion problems with right arm and shoulder - dominant side.

I may have forgotten a few more but I also have problems remembering things too!!!

Thanks in advance. Slowlane

Was this a partial laryngectomy or total laryngectomy?

It is very difficult to know how they will rate these as residuals.

I think some of these conditions were part of the 100% schedular award and some might be conditions that have nothing directly to do with the 100% disability.

If you go to the BVA web site you can search for this disability and there are many decisions there.

I found three with some rating and diagnostic code info in them.:

I did not have a laryngectomy or partial laryngectomy I did have 35 radiation treatments to the pharynx area for larynx cancer and 3 large doses of Chemo. I am currently clear and in remission but, the residuals from the treatment were and are devastating. Everything I listed is directly connected to the cancer treatment. I think you are right that it is difficult to know how they will rate some of these. Maybe I should have put my questions out one piece at a time instead of a full blown shopping list. Thanks for your help.....Slowlane

    question-001.jpeg

    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. Read the forums without registering, to post you must register it’s free. Register for a free account.

    Tips on posting on the forums.

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery” instead of ‘I have a question’.
    2. Knowledgable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title. I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one huge, rambling introduction or story. Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.

    Leading to:

    Post clear questions and then give background info on them.

    Examples:

    • A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine but claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • I was involved in traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?

    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial from your claim?” etc.

    Note:

    Your firsts posts on the board may be delayed before they show up, as they are reviewed, this process does not take long and the review requirement will be removed usually by the 6th post, though we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.

    This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before they hit the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims and this helps us do that.

    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
