Dont Really Understand This

Question

physical examination

veteren is well developed well nourished male in no distress Active range with a gonimetrer is as follows forward flexion 0 to 30 degrees with pain at 30 degrees backward extension is 40 degrees with pain at 40 abduction 0 to 55 with pain thrughout whole motion interenal rotation 0 to 40 with pain and external rotation 0 to 55 degrees with pain With 3 repitions the range of motion is not additionally limited by pain fatigue weakness or lack of endurance. Im alittle confused with that last statement When in the history it states that Im a heliocopter mechanic and i have to take more frequent breaks to rest my shoulder and it takes me longer to complete jobs It also says it pops out 2 to 3 times daily which causes throbbing pain throughout the day. Im just worried because it also states that i denied fatigability and lack of endurance. Which i feel dumb if I said that but Im scared its going to hurt my rating I guess I just want to know how others view this C&P exam and what they think about what my outcome might be Tired of stressing bout the holidays My claim has been in the decision phase for the third time since july 12 2010. Starting to get old. Thanks for all the responses and help I get.

I do have a copyand it says it takes me longer to do jobs at work and when pain starts it is throbbing all day 800mg motrin. which causes me to take frequent breaks compared to all my coworkers. it says the motion range which isnt all that good and it pops out 2 to 3 times a day. But then it also states that motion is not additionally limited by pain fatigue weakness or lack of enurance. which totaly contradicts the previous few statements. Is that an error or what or should i jut see the outcome its been 2 weeks now. It makes me uneasy now

Personally, I'd wait for the outcome. The decision is made by a rater, not the doctor, so you could still win. Should you need to counter the doctors statements, you could use sworn affidavits from fellow coworkers and your employer, as evidence. jmo

    • I would like to meet other Hadit members who live in Michigan.  We have at least two major VA Hospitals (Battle Creek, Ann Arbor).  Or maybe you go to the the John Dingell in Detroit.  

      I like Ann Arbor.  I like the fact that most of the doctors there are also at the UM Hospital.  I don't like how uickly they seem to turn over though.

    • Really?
      I am confused.  A few days ago I spoke to a person at a VARO who said if I die from something other than service-connected my husband gets zero, zilch, squat.  Hmmmmmm, it seems the rules change willy-nilly...I have been rated 100% P & T for over 10 years, MS is static, and I am 56 years of age.

      Can a fellow Veteran shed a light on this?

      Thank you.
