I Have A C&p In A Couple Weeks What To Expect


GDavis9755

Question

March last year I was awarded 90%SC. Right after that I received TDIU at 100% T&P. Life was great after years of the fight..

Then the same month (March) I was DX with small cell lung cancer (Limed). I filed for SC because of AO and was awarded 100% with aid and attedance.

After 6 treatments of chemo, along with 35 radiation the same time. After that 15 radiation brain treatments. Here we are in June of this year they want to have a C&P for my (respiratory problem). I so far am NED for the cancer. It's all the other problems that really hard on me. Some where and some how I had two TIC strokes, can't feel much in my feet, found out last week I have a vein that is completely blocked but have two other veins that has by-passed the main one. I also got 65% damage to my kidneys .

I,m still tired all the time sweat at night, hit the bath room 8-12 times a night, dizzy when I stand or walk, can't walk 100 ft with out almost passing out.

I figure they'll knock me back to TDIU which would cost me money. Do I need to file for all the other problems that has been caused frome the cancer treatment? I was well and no idea of what the treatment was going to do to me. Thaks

They are looking at the cancer to see if your cured.

You should be at SMC L or higher now since you have a 100 plus a 90 and a and a.

You should file for the kidneys and other things and maybe depression if you have it to offset any reductions by the VA.

Did two tours in Nam. First tour with 1st Cav as a grunt, went to flight school 2nd tour with the 101airborne up north. I was rated with all my combined at 90%. They then gave me TDIU. The cancer at present is stable. My cancer Dr says I will always have the cancer it's under control right now. Could come back and I'm screwed. I'm taking PET scans every 3 months. As it is a very aggressive cancer. Less then 5% make it to 5 years. As far as SMC as L I'm not sure they gave me that. I was moved to 100% with aid and attendance.

As I'm already rated TDIU P&T. What should I expect filing for the lung damage, kidney, and the other problems the treatment has caused?

As far as I know,is that once you are P&T. You are max out on money, except for SMC's. I'm up to 380 %, but only P&T 100% with two SMC. Are you married? you can claim her, sometimes the DAV or VSO leave off your spouse.

    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
