this is crazy help

Question

well talk about being confused ?

i just had a nice visit with my primary care physican,i have had her for about a year.

long story short,,,

i ask why my recent x-ray report stated my back condition did not show any amonalys 

((  defects )) noted. 

she said its because you dont have any >>>> hu ,, i said but i have a congenital vertebrae

she said no you dont,and the records (x-rays ) proves it . well i told her the va said i did

and denied my back claim due to the law , she said i dont know any thing about va law i;am 

a doctor and you dont have a defect in you vertebrae,

so now what ? i cant file a cue on a misdiagnosis,which was first diagnosied in 1984.

and guess what '''' her nurse got on the computer and down loaded a dbq and she had me do some test , and said good by for now. here nurse said she would call me when the doctor finished the paper work, so i left.

what do yall think ?? is it to early to start dreaming again.          

 

thanks all

How about posting redacted copies of your C & P DBQ.

You need to go to the VMC Radiology Dept for for the Radiologist Expert opinion regarding any xrays of your spine. Radiology Notes don't show up on your MHV or for that matter in your VMC Med File, you have to get them from the Radiology Dept. May have changed, but that is how it was back in 15.

Most VA PCP and Specialist Drs, shy away from discussing anything regarding SC Claims. I think their afraid of damaging their patient Dr relationship, very understandable, considering the volatility of some Vets.

Doesn't sound like your PCP is a good choice for a supportive DBQ.

Gastone,

As an update, I had my meeting with the Voc Rehab folks yesterday, and as you predicted, they basically said there is nothing they can do for me.

Should have my "rejection" letter in a few days, will file it with my Fully Developed claim, as well as TDIU, and see how it goes.

Thanks for your advice!

Allan, get educated on the VA IL (Independent Living) Program. It's run out of the VA VR Dept, chances are, your VR Councilor is also an IL program Councilor.

Was any mention of the IL program and your eligibility for it, made by your VR Councilor?

Give AskNod's posts, regarding the IL program, a couple of good reads, very informative.

    • I would like to meet other Hadit members who live in Michigan.  We have at least two major VA Hospitals (Battle Creek, Ann Arbor).  Or maybe you go to the the John Dingell in Detroit.  

      I like Ann Arbor.  I like the fact that most of the doctors there are also at the UM Hospital.  I don't like how uickly they seem to turn over though.

    • Really?
      I am confused.  A few days ago I spoke to a person at a VARO who said if I die from something other than service-connected my husband gets zero, zilch, squat.  Hmmmmmm, it seems the rules change willy-nilly...I have been rated 100% P & T for over 10 years, MS is static, and I am 56 years of age.

      Can a fellow Veteran shed a light on this?

      Thank you.
