      All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. Read the forums without registering, to post you must register it’s free. Register for a free account.

      Tips on posting on the forums.

      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’.


      Knowledgable 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.


      Use paragraphs instead of one huge, 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 to:

      Post clear questions and then give background info on them.

      Examples:

      A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?


      I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine but claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?



      B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?

      I was involved in 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 from your claim?” etc.

      Note:

      Your firsts posts on the board may be delayed before they show up, as they are reviewed, this process does not take long and the review requirement will be removed usually by the 6th post, though we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.

      This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before they hit the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims and this helps us do that.

One Cancer On Appeal For Ao Now Another New Pops Up

Question

I have a one year old appeal going for a head & neck cancer agent orange connected.

Now, it appears that I have a new primary lung cancer that could be agent orange presumptive.

The Question: Will the ongoing appeal cancel the new claim or screw it up somehow??????

Thanks in advance.....

Sorry, yes I forgot you had told us that before.Not STS cancer

"30 days later they severed my service connection and put me on the hamster wheel and are dragging their feet to give me my SOC and Form 9."

Have you contacted either Secretary Bob or the Under Secretary Ms. Hickey?

Wait, did I read this wrong?????

"St Pete re-opened my case and got a local OBGYN VA Doc" HUH?

That is your door to an appeal right there...How long ago was the C & P by the OBGYN done ?

You needed on oncology opinion........I recently knocked down a ludicrous C & P opinion on my 1151 HBP claim.

I called CUE on them And they reversed within a few weeks....

We have to start fighting back right away when we get these quack C & P opinions.

In no way does a OBGYN have expertise , as far as I know, in the field of cancer.....

I haven't contacted anyone......I have no faith that anyone can do anything with St Pete.

Right now, I am beaten down and discouraged. It's not easy to wage a war with the VA and cancer at the same time.

I know this sounds like I'm fishing for sympathy.......I don't play that card.

I gotta go thru this stage of my life for a while. Just sitting on the sideline trying to come up with some useful ideas.. As Arnold said: :I'll be back.

Thanks Berta

I thought it was outside the lines myself.

She even got her degree from the Philippines........Forgive me if I have gone politically incorrect here but if you are going to sever someone's service connection at least use a US doctor and trained in the right field.

I really really really believe she was coached by St Pete......This could never be proved.

I dont doubt it. MANy many Years ago I gave a C & P doc some hell but after we talked I knew he had done what VA wanted him to do...say stuff to deny the claim.He told he HATED to be asked to do C & Ps.

He was really pissed too when I informed him that the RO had by then 10-12 copies of an autopsy which, as he said, when I read it to him by phone, would have definitely changed his opinion.

As it was I was able to overcome 2 C & Ps he had done, because the VA failed to give him the most probative evidence I had.

We spoke a few more times over the years and I was convinced that this was a real good doctor, who not only was not given all of the evidence but was coerced into an opinion that would go against the claim.

I think that happens a lot more than we know....and the fact the an IMO from a real doctor will often raise the evidenceto BOD and the claim is awarded..

But they know not every veteran can afford an IMO .
