    Have Questions? Get Answers.

    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. Knowledgeable 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 massive, 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 too:

    exclamation-point.pngPost straightforward questions and then post background information.
     
     
    Examples:
     
    • Question A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    Rephrase the question: I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
     
    • Question B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
    Rephrase the question: I was involved in a 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 of your claim?”

PAD - traditional treatment is Bi-Pass

Under some circumstances, stints may be an alternative.

If this is appropriate, the process involves using a cath, similar to those done in relation to heart problems.

chuck75,

I had two stents place already and I have one doctor say have the by-pass,and one says not to have it. My thing is

it has to be another way besides a by- pass surgery for this. I can't trust the doctors I have they are all in it for the money.

Mayo clinic says they can help determine what is the best thing to do, so I just hope they are as good as I have heard.

If surgery is the only option I have then I will use Mayo Clinic to do the surgery but hoping there is another way. At 53 they

say I am to young to have this and the surgery last about 4-5 years then something else has to be done. Just don't know

TMOE, I live in the upper midwest and EVERYONE with a serious condition wants to go to the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN. We used to live 30 miles from it and it was a source of some amusement the number of corporate and foreign jets that were parked at the Rochester airport at any given time.
