I will be there John- and have a lawyer who would be interested in doing a show in the future ( malpractice lawyer)-

we just discussed the Fayetteville situation and his firm has gotten calls already on it.

His main concern is the same one I have- does the letters going out to 19,574 vets and to over 5,000 potential survivors- begin the FTCA statute of limits-

He also agreed with me that this might be a class action situation.

Jerrel, Jbasser, and Dr Bash- the show was excellent! 

after I left the show there were some sound issues - but not the one I caused...he he----

It is best if calling in - to eithe lower your PC sound or turn it off, if you try to listen to the show at hadit-

but are also on the show at the same time.

Something I mentioned was all covered by noises-not here but at the show. Re: the SOL-

The law firm I spoke too has excellent reputation in all sorts of malpractice- personali njury claim- etc.

My concern  over the SOL was as valid as their's was-

I could not get any lawyer to me file SF 95 FTCA case- I had to study FTCA law. 

This malpractice lawyer explains FTCA ( VA) SOL:


Only a few veterans so far know they were misdiagnosed. The 2 years began on that day.

The day VA made them 100% aware of the malpractice. They can file FTCA already.

Thousand of other vets have to wait to see if they can file FTCA.

Knowing how aggressively VA fights FTCA-from my personal experience -

and seeing in Arkansas news that the interim VAMC director is   trying to keep this as an 'isolated incident"

(VA Central has not  sent out a Press Release on this yet) I dont see the letter as the SOL-

But they could file 1151 claims ASAP-and withdraw them if they do not here from VA they were a malpractice victim.

Hopefully no more wll be f ound as harmed by the wrong diagnosis.

But I think there will be more.

    • I filed a claim in october of 2018 for ptsd and TDIU, long story short I tried to do everything myself and didn't have the proper diagnosis so I was service connected for anxiety based on having a medical marijuana card diagnosis for anxiety but the rating was 30% and I much worse off then that. So I obtained a referral from the va to a fancy psychiatrist from the university of north florida's behavior health department and was diagnosed with ptsd, bi polar 1 and panic disorder. I used this new medical evidence as my supplemental claim evidence and filed it April 16, 2019 after receiving my letter March 20, 2019. My claim is now at Pending Decision Approval with an estimated completion date of july 2, 2019 which is super fast from all I have read. My question is, Am I going to be awarded tdiu with the evidence I submitted if they adjust me up to 70% which I think it will . Or if they award 70% for ptsd on this new supplemental claim will i have to re-apply for tdiu again? Or would that all be considered in the final review of the entire claim? Thanks for any help.

    • how do you figure when they will start paying me at the 100% rate, housebound..?  They will start the pay before they finish the back pay?  That would be nice !!

      If you receive a hysterectomy while you are filing for disability through the VA, will it still count?

    • Help needed bad  Male MST
      Is there anything for a man who's been diagnosed with PTSD secondary to MST. I see all this information and it's primarily speaking as if it only happened to females. If anybody has any advice for a man who suffers from this condition please let me know I'm not alone. Also let me know of any coping skills you've learned as I have lived the last 25-30 years of my life in full flight from reality.
