C&p Exams (No Clue)

Question

Lumbar spine.pdfKnee and Lower leg.pdfHip and thigh.pdf

During my last C&P exam, this is what the doctor annotated. Have no idea if its good or bad. In my claim, I did not put sciatic nerves or radiculopathy, but I noticed it was mentioned by the doc. Should I go VARO and claim them or wait for the outcome. Currently rated at 90%,Lateral meniscus L/knee 30%, Exercise induced asthma 30%,Patellogemoral pain R/Knee 20%, Depressive disorder 30%, Degenerative Joint Disease L/Knee 30%, Impringement syndrome L/Shoulder 10%,R/ankle 10%,Hypertension with ED 10%, psueudo barbae 10%, Thoraic spine strain 10%. I was MEB in 2002 and medically retired from the Federal prison in 2009. I applied for IU due to retirements and denied. Submitted NOD in 2010 of July. Was also denied Social Security.

I don't know anything about the SSA denial, but it sounds like you need to appeal it, or refile for disability.

I'd also say that it may be moot of you have reached full retirement age for SSA.

I think the technical problem with VA TDIU right now is that you don't have a single disability rated at 40% or more. I can't judge what your exams mean. I would appeal both VA and SSD and never give up. If you have to hire a lawyer for both VA and SSD then do it. It would be worth it. You need evidence from doctors outside the VA system that will say you can't work due to your SC conditions.

I understand the 40% percent rating that i need, i would hoping someone was able to determing by looking at the worksheet. I did noticed that the doctor answered due to my disability that I was unable to work. My left knee was replaced twice and still having problems. He noted that there was deformity, pain on movement, and atrophy of disuse. I'm hoping these two will get me over the hump. I was checking ebenefits today, and notice DDD which I did not apply for.

What kind of doctor did you have do this? I'm going to schedule an apt and bring in the C&P forms for the VA dr. to fill out, because I've never got a C&P scheduled by my RO even though my VA files has VA Docs dx me with problems.

    • I would like to meet other Hadit members who live in Michigan.  We have at least two major VA Hospitals (Battle Creek, Ann Arbor).  Or maybe you go to the the John Dingell in Detroit.  

      I like Ann Arbor.  I like the fact that most of the doctors there are also at the UM Hospital.  I don't like how uickly they seem to turn over though.

    • Really?
      I am confused.  A few days ago I spoke to a person at a VARO who said if I die from something other than service-connected my husband gets zero, zilch, squat.  Hmmmmmm, it seems the rules change willy-nilly...I have been rated 100% P & T for over 10 years, MS is static, and I am 56 years of age.

      Can a fellow Veteran shed a light on this?

      Thank you.
