Hi Mike and welcome! My appeal was mainly at bva for 7 years. Today I received my yellow envolope. The bva aproved to have my case reopened but now it is at the remand stage at the amc for who knows how long but it was good news to me to have it reopened. As for you to get a call and saying it will be complete by the end of the month is great, if it happens and I hope it dose for you. If the dro aproves your appeal thats awlsome. If not your next stage I assume will to appeal it to the bva. Good luck to you for sure!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hi Mike...Welcome!

Might be reading too much into your screen name but were you a helicopter mechanic by chance? We could use some more "rotorhead" people here at Hadit!! If not...still nice to have you aboard.

The DRO has the authority to make the decision/s, request additional information or C&P exam/s.

Perhaps there's already enough there for a decision to be made.

I would not necessarily count on having resolve by the end of this month, but do hope it happens

for you.

Even after the decision is made there are some internal steps that need to be completed and then

your notification should be mailed to you.

At this point all you can do is keep waiting.

    • OK so I had pancreatectomy in 2003 due to an impacted goldstone 2/3 of my  Pancreas was removed I am type one diabetes with very large scars continued diarrhea stomach problems Constant back and shoulder pain I recently received a Nexus letter from my  endocrinologist related to my service in the gulf war.  Any suggestions or advice from anyone
    • 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.
