Appeal the decision, and while you are waiting for that make an appointment for Voc Rehab and if you are denied into the program get a Feasibility Letter for TDIU. That letter is GOLD.

Definitely appeal it if you have information to contradict it. If you do, it stops the decrease until they adjudicate it.

If you feel your shoulder is not any better in fact its worse...you need to get an IMO  (Independent medical opinion) on it and ask the Dr to give his medical opinion as the the severity and if it keeps you from working, ask the Dr to read your pertains records on this issue and ask him to put in his letter that  after examining this veteran his medical condition warrants him unemployable  for any type work  give in detail as to why...pain ect,,ect,,,

A specialist in this field is better to use.

you have 60 days to respond   request a DRO Hearing at your R.O. and take the IMO letter  with you  but do submit it as evidence  but take a copy with you to your DRO Hearing...face off with a DRO and show him/her your S.C. Disability up close.

Always be nice at your Hearing &  remember  good favorable reliable evidence is what wins our claims.

some times a proposal to reduce results in an increase rather than a decrease.

Get the IME/IMO and appeal that reduction.  If you don't fight a reduction I believe it may encourage the VA to try and reduce you again since they may see an easy target.  How did they determine that you should be reduced any way?  Get an orthopedist to do your IMO if possible.  I also have shoulder disability and it got worse when I had surgery on it.  No question that a bad shoulder injury can make it impossible to do most work.

Definitely fight them.  I went for TDIU and the VA threatened to reduce my PTSD and sever my migraines.  The BVA is much more into reading the evidence and I have found them more willing to give the veteran their due.

    • Finally heard back that I received my 100% Overall rating and a 100% PTSD rating Following my long appeal process!

      My question is this, given the fact that my appeal was on the advanced docket and is an “Expedited” appeal, what happens now and how long(ish) is the process from here on out with retro and so forth? I’ve read a million things but nothing with an expedited appeal status.

      Anyone deal with this situation before? My jump is from 50 to 100 over the course of 2 years if that helps some. I only am asking because as happy as I am, I would be much happier to pay some of these bills off!

    • I told reviewer that I had a bad C&P, and that all I wanted was a fair shake, and she even said, that was what she was all ready viewed for herself. The first C&P don't even  reflect my Treatment in the VA PTSD clinic. In my new C&P I was only asked about symptoms, seeing shit, rituals, nightmares, paying bills and about childhood, but didn't ask about details of it. Just about twenty question, and  nothing about stressor,

      You, yes you, are the reason HadIt.com has remained a resource-rich resource. Thousands come each month to read, ask questions, or to feel a sense of community.

Because we have posts dating back 15 years and articles on the home page, they usually can find an answer or at least get pointed in the right direction.

      You all made that possible. Thank you.
