david dupe

Question

Well, yes.  Is the stroke service connected?  Do you have "loss of use"?  There are several levels of A and A, depending upon the level of care you need.  That is, do you need a nurse, or can just anyone help feed and clothe you?

Yes the stroke is secondary to my CAD or hypertension, I haven’t filed a claim on it. I read my medical record at va hospital and there are several problems that I’ve had or being treated for that reads (sct 000000) such as loss of spleen, a fibralation, heart stent, aortic valve replaced, cerebrovascular accident etc. I assume the sct stands for service connected treatment, I’m assuming they are secondary since I haven’t been rated on these issues.

yes I have a loss of use of my hand, foot, shaking, dizziness, I really have to think about what I’m trying to talk about, memory etc,these issues are not everyday, they seem to run in spells but they are becoming more frequent. Friends and family help out when needed.

Sounds like you are having a rough time at it.

Yea it’s been tough, I’m not sure I would know what feeling good would truly feel like.

to top it off I struggle to breathe and catch my breath with very little exertion. Examples walking to my mailbox and back (25 yds) each way, walking to the back of my house, back then put on my shoes.

That's a rough call.  The only thing you can do is ask.  You would not know without going through the compensation system.

I understand. I read how they assign % on heart disease, I would definitely qualify for 100% but I would have to go through the compensation program.. we all know that can be a toss up even though the evidence is in my records
