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

    • Appeal granted and closed.
      My appeal was granted and closed on November 9.  I got an unofficial notification from the DAV on November 15 stating "appeal granted with an evaluation of 30%" which is great!  My question is this:  How long until I get the official notification from the va? Nothing on ebennies has updated since the appeal closed. Appeal is now in historical and just says complete and at originating va office. I understand no one knows va timelines to a tee but a general timeline would be great.  Thank you all! Hope you have a Merry Christmas!

       

      Edit:  This was my first time appealing and it was a VBA grant.

    • Question About Temporary 100% Rating for Hospitalization
      Hey all. I've searched all over the net, and read the CFR on the topic. I will be going to PTSD Dom inpatient treatment here soon. I read that it's possible to get 100% temp for hospitalization. However, the CFR says that PTSD Dom does not qualify, but then in the exceptions it says that it may. Does anyone know if I will qualify for temp 100%. I will be in there for almost 2 months. Here is the CFR code, and the part regarding the matter-

       

      Do not apply the provisions of 38 CFR 4.29 when a Veteran

      is treated as a resident in a State Veterans’ home is currently receiving a total rating for the disability for which hospitalization was required is a resident in a VA domiciliary program, or is a participant in a live-in/work out program being utilized to facilitate transition to community living.

       

      Exceptions:
      Hospitalization in excess of 21 days for an SC disability in a medical facility located at a State Veterans’ home may entitle the Veteran to hospitalization benefits. Veterans are entitled to hospitalization benefits for treatment in excess of 21 days in a day hospital program if the treatment given is consistent with hospital care for a SC disability even though they are concurrently required to be housed in a VA domiciliary.

      The exceptions part is confusing me. Does anyone know if I am entitled to a temporary 100% rating? I'm currently rated for the same reason I'm going inpatient.
