Two C&p Two Weeks Ago.



One was for sleep apnea(secondary) and for instability in both knees. Know I will have to do appeal on the SA but was expecting that. On the knees, already rated at 10% each but the way the DR was talking he thinks my left shouldn't be rated so may get screwed there. Actually having a somewhat decent day as far as knees(no swelling that day)

Two days later had exam for MDD. When we were done she was explaining that she would finish writing it up, QTC would review and then send to rater. She stated that I should be getting an increase. Not rated for it at the moment but from looking at the CFR, I have symptoms from both the 50% and 70% so will have to wait and see.

I also have a claim in for my back. While active duty thoracic neuritis. lumbago and bony spur causing right central stenosis were documented but I has never told. For the last 9 years just thought my back was hurting due to not walking normal most of the time due to my knees. No word on exam for it but am seeing the VA hospital here in OKC for the pain and am on 1800mg of Gabapentin a day for the neuritis. Possible the rater saw the notes from the VA here and that it would be enough to rate without having the C&P?

Hopefully you will hear something in the near future. C & P exams sound good except for the doctor's comments about your left knee.

Good luck to you.

Thanks. Yeah the first one could have gone better. I was running late and forgot to grab the studies linking opiates to sleep apnea which would have helped. He said he was going to look into it so who knows. I was medically discharged due to my knees. First MEB came back fit for duty but not full duty. During the time it was being looked at the put me on Hydrocodone. My command sent in a reply that due to the amount of medication I was only good for about 6-8 hours of work a week. Two weeks after they submtited it game back to discharge me. It was about 3 months after I started the Hydrocodone that my wife started notice problems with my sleep. Even if it didn't cause it, it did make it worse.

Coworker in pretty much same position. He just won on appeal. We initially filed initial filings at about the same time. I got 30% total and he got 10%. He got a lawyer(i will be using same one) and is currently at 90% but hey have not finished with the sleep apnea which the judge said they will rate him on.
