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

You have the exam but you are looking in the wrong place for the pertinent material concerning your report.

Your Test results, Range of motion, Dislocations are just part of the medical history.

What you need to do is get the report out and look toward the end and get to the requested and stated opinion from the C and P examiner.

If it is at least as likely as not, or more likely than not or was due to then you have a positive opinion and your claim. (Barring any offbeat shenanigans from the RO) should be on its way.
