  • 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.

    • 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.
