  • Can a 100 percent Disabled Veteran Work and Earn an Income?

    employment 2.jpeg

    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

5 Qtc Eval This Week

Question

Well glad this week is over. I had 5 QTC's since last Friday. Today was 3 back to back. I has PTSD, Heart, and HYPERTENSION. when I was seated they took my BP which was 177/97/78 then again 172/83/79 those was on the left arm then to the right arm, 171/85/76. I don't know how that going to play out. The Dr. who examine me for my IHD said I had a good heart, I asked how could that be with high BP, A STENT and a artery with more than 40% blockage. He said it sounds good, what a joke this was. Now on the PTSD the Psy Dr. I think did really well, ask some good questions, but nothing about the events I dreams or have night mares about nothing on anything I saw or witness while in Viet Nam. Just a lot of social questions. So I don't know if this will get me a up grade in my rating or not, just hope so, All of this is for IU.

thanks for listening

Morning Dot, to answer your questions, NO I have never smoked, my cholesterol is under control by the medication I take. Now as for as my weight goes, I am 5'8'' and my weight is 234lbs, so according to their chart I am obese. I don't think I have sleep apnea, but with PTSD I NEVER SLEEP THRU A NIGHT. Also I would never take this DR. opinion as gospel. I have a cardiologist that is taking care of my heart. My cardio Dr. has me schedule for a stress test this April. The results of the test will determine if he put in a stent to open the 40% blockage. I almost forgot the atherosclerosis, yes I have that to. Isn't life great when you get older.

If you get the CAD and or PTSD awards, get with the Sleep Clinic via a referral from your VA Primary care Dr. If you have over a 17in neck, good chance you have SA. If CAD or PTSD diagnosed before SA. Good chance to get secondary or aggravated by CAD or PTSD. I lucked out, NAM Vet CAD 2008, SA nexsus CAD 2010. SA needing CPAP or BIPAP RATES @ 50% SC.

GOOD LUCK. SEMPER FI

    • 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.
