    Have Questions? Get Answers.

    Tips on posting on the forums.

    1. 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.
    2. Knowledgeable 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.
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, 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 too:

    exclamation-point.pngPost straightforward questions and then post background information.
    • Question A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    Rephrase the question: I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • Question B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
    Rephrase the question: I was involved in a 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 of your claim?”

    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

Renal Dysfunction:



I was typing up some info for the doc at my C&P next week and I decided to look at the rating schedules and I think I may have found myself another 60%

this is what I typed up

. I have had over seventeen Electro Shock Wave Lithotripsies (ESWL) as well as numerous basket retrievals on my left kidney. On 10/31/06 I had a KUB, which showed multiple large stones in my left kidney. On 11/16/2006 I had a renal scan conducted at the Ann Arbor VAMC which showed that my right kidney is filtering 68% of the blood and my left is filtering 32% of the blood. On 12/4/06 I had a renal ultrasound which I am unaware of the results. On 12/5/06 I had a appointment with DR Kim in the urology clinic where we discussed Percutaneous Nephrolithotomy and the removal of all stones from my left kidney. On 12/6/06 DR Kim called me and told me he couldn’t do the Percutaneous Nephrolithotomy stone removal, as it was too dangerous. He suggested Laser Lithotripsie, I asked him was there any urgency and he said yes my kidney function was sub optimal at best.

from the rating schedule

Renal dysfunction:

Constant albuminuria with some edema; or, definite decrease in 60

kidney function; or, hypertension at least 40 percent

disabling under diagnostic code 7101.........................
