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

    • Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask
      Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask. Chris Attig - Veterans Law Blog 

      <br style="color:#000000; text-align:start">How to Hire an Attorney For Your VA Claim or Appeal Free Guidebook available on the Veterans Law Blog

      I got an email the other day from a Veteran.  It had 2 or 3 sentences about his claim, and then closed at the end: “Please call me. So-and-so told me you were the best and I want your help.”

      While I appreciate the compliments, I shudder a little at emails like this.  For 2 reasons.

      First, I get a lot of emails like this.  And while I diligently represent my clients – I often tell them we will pursue their claim until we have no more appeals or until we win – I am most assuredly not the best.

      There are a LOT of damn good VA Disability attorneys out there.  (Most, if not all, of the best are members of the National Organization of Veterans Advocates…read about one of them, here)

      Second, I don’t want Veterans to choose their attorney based on who their friend thought was the best.  I want Veterans to choose the VA Disability attorney who is BEST for their case.

      In some situations, that may be the Attig Law Firm.

      But it may also be be Hill and Ponton, or Chisholm-Kilpatrick, or Bergman Moore.  Or any one of the dozens of other attorneys who have made the representation of Veterans their professional life’s work.

      There are hundreds of attorneys that are out there representing Veterans, and I’m here to tell you that who is best for your friend’s case may not be the best for your case.

      How do you Find the Best VA Disability Attorney for your Claim?

      First, you have to answer the question: do you NEED an attorney?

      Some of you don’t...
