C and p exam for knees

Question

I was originally granted service connection for my knees almost ten years ago for knee pain.

 

I'm about two weeks I have another exam after requesting an increase. Does anyone know a good resource to look through for what to expect during the c and p exam?

Yes there is much here (searchable) on what to do at a c and p.  I will summarize:

1.  Show up on time.

2.  Be polite and respectful and truthful.  

3.  Know your answer to the question "How are you?"   If you say, "fine" automatically, which most of us do, then you will be backtracking.  Instead a better answer might be:  "Fine TODAY.  Last Thursday, however I was in so much pain..(now describe your worst day...that you had to take the day off, pack ice on your knee etc).  You should always describe your worst day, not your best day.

Great Advice above, just go in there and be honest. Also nothing is more compelling then hardcore Medical Evidence such as Knee Surgeries, X Rays, MRIs etc. Cause a Dr, Nurse etc. can not argue with that evidence. Otherwise it is just your word vs their word that your knees hurt worse, or your bending is limiting etc etc. Either way good luck and just try not to be so nervous, I know that is easier said then done. Good luck and keep us posted. God Bless

I guess my question was more directed to what is the doctor going to do; as far as measurements, how are thr y supposed to do them. What is the actual physical exam going to entail.
