  • Can a 100 percent Disabled Veteran Work and Earn an Income?

    employment 2.jpeg

    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

C P Rectal Exam?

Question

I went to my CP exam today for Migraine, Muscle spasms, neck pain and erectile dysfunction.      To my surprise, the examiner mentioned she was directed to give me a rectal exam?  Seemed out of the ordinary?  Not sure what a rectal exam had to do with my disabilities?  I refused the rectal.  Did this request ever happen to anyone else?

Welcome to Hadit!

That may have been to check your prostate and also hemorrhoids/polyps. An abnormally enlarged prostate can be a cause of ED or other issues.

you should have complied with the C&P Examiner (jmo)

I can't say what your rating may end up ? but it don't make you look good as for as an examination to deny the examination.....unless this examiner was not qualified?

 if that is your reason to deny the rectal examination  then report that to the C&P Cheif.

The VA and private docs save  many lives with these types of exams, to rule out prostate cancer...

I read this post earlier and asked a USAF vet friend ( 20 yrs retired REDHORSE- Alaska)who just stopped by, if he ever got this rectal exam, but he had always refused and the VA sent him or gave him a kit to have his prostate checked or to rule out any form of rectal  cancer. I think he has to use the kit annually and maybe bring the results to the VA????

They advertise this kit on TV but I dont pay much attention to it, yet I think it is probably as good as the rectal exam.

My VA Urologist does a rectal exam on me about every 2 years or so & every 10 years I get a colostomy .

However he is male  now Female maybe a different for some Men  but in my opinion they do have smaller fingers.

Its better to be safe than sorry.

    • Type 1 Diabetes recent onset!
      I was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in September 2017 OUT OF NOWHERE.

      i am a Navy Reservist and deployed in later 2009 to mid 2010 and again later 2014 to mid 2015; had a 2 year recall between those deployments.  

      Only healthcare received since commissioning in 2008 was from the Navy and no issues EVER.

      insulin dependent and have dietary restrictions and in a non deployable status.

      VA denied initial claim due to Type 1 not showing on active duty and now appealing.

      Anyone with successful experience getting a rating with my circumstances?  I live in Upstate New York.

    • Agent Orange Kadena Afb Okinawa
      I am looking for anyone who was on Kadena AFB, Okinawa or .Chanute AFB, IL. My dad was there from Oct. 68-April 70. He has ichemic heart disease, diabetes which has resulted in the amputation of his right leg below the knee and peripheral neuropathy. We were denied in 2002 AMVETS filed a claim on his behalf for heart condition, diabetes and back problems. I refiled in December 2011 and have just received the claim statements and medical release forms. I am familiar with filling out this paper work because my husband is a combat veteran of Iraqi Freedom. I have been reading articles from the Japan times and I am a member of the Agent Orange Okinawa facebook page. Another thing that helps make my dad's case is that he was on Chanute AFB, IL and it is on the EPA Superfund list and has PCBs/Pesticides and Dioxins/Furans listed as ground and water contaminants. I welcome any advice, tips or articles that I may have missed in my own research.

    • Appeal granted and closed.
      My appeal was granted and closed on November 9.  I got an unofficial notification from the DAV on November 15 stating "appeal granted with an evaluation of 30%" which is great!  My question is this:  How long until I get the official notification from the va? Nothing on ebennies has updated since the appeal closed. Appeal is now in historical and just says complete and at originating va office. I understand no one knows va timelines to a tee but a general timeline would be great.  Thank you all! Hope you have a Merry Christmas!

       

      Edit:  This was my first time appealing and it was a VBA grant.
