  • Trouble Remembering? This helped me.

    I have memory problems and as some of you may know I highly recommend Evernote and have for years. Though I've found that writing helps me remember more. I ran across Tom's videos on youtube, I'm a bit geeky and I also use an IPad so if you take notes on your IPad or you are thinking of going paperless check it out. I'm really happy with it, I use it with a program called Noteshelf 2.

One Cancer On Appeal For Ao Now Another New Pops Up

Question

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 .

    • I was denied SC for IBS and GERD IN 2011. In 2019 I was awarded SC for GERD. This CUE  is for 2011, both GERD and IBS. There are some odd aspects regarding the 2011 decision, the way it was written and the C&P report and the way it was written. I've tried to present this as clearly as I can. Note: the decision contradicts itself. the decision also contradicts the C&P Report. Honestly, I think the rater just got confused because the C&P was so poorly written. *THIS CUE HAS NOT YET BEEN SUBMITTED*Please let me know what you think. Appreciate all comments and suggestions. Thanks.
