BVA Hearing Aug 30, 2016 - any advice



I finally received my hearing date with the BVA in DC.  I want to be as prepared as possible.  I'm currently rated 10%  (Total 50% for other issues) for my bilateral feet, calcaneal bursitis.  I contacted the Maryland of Veteran Affairs representative that is going to meet me at the hearing, he stated that I do not need to bring anything and that he will brief me an hour before my hearing...

I'm a planner and liked to be prepared for anything.  I plan on getting a copy of all my related medical records from the VA and bring them with me.  I've also been under the care of a VA podiatrist and plan on asking if he would feel comfortable writing a letter on my behalf.  

Is there anything that I should bring or be prepared for?  How long after my hearing will a decision be made?  

I'm not sure if anyone would know, but I'm currently getting the 10% held back to pay back my compensation the Air Force gave me for my medical seperation.  If they do grant me a higher rating, will they keep the whole thing or just the initial 10%?

I appreciate any information or guidance.  

Thank you so much!
