Up Coming C&P Exam


DevilDogCurt

Question

I have a C&P exam in two weeks.  I am having surgery on one of my shoulders in June.   This is exam is for a revaluation/increase.  I hope to get my shoulders in a static status. 
 
1. Should I mention I am having surgery in the C&P exam?
2. Can I bring my wife with me in the exam room? 
3. Can I submit a DBQ from my private doctor prior to my C&P exam? 
4. What to expect in this exam? 

I never have anything positive happen to me from the VA hospital in DC.

Thanks for any advice

Yes I would mention that you are having surgery on your shoulder coming up.

Unless the doctor is a jerk you can bring your wife.

Yes, I would submit a DBQ from your private doctor.

Just relax and be honest and the exam should work out.

I am sorry you have had bad experiences with the VA.  I have many war stories about the VA and sad treatment I have received over the last thirty years.  My best advice is to take every new exam as a positive, even if it does not seem to go well.  I have to remember to be good every time I enter the VA.

Thanks Vetquest,

 

The exam was quick as normal.  He as me a few question and I did two shoulder test and some questions about my wrist.  He said, Sir you are done and I have to do my part now.  I should have some results in 60 to 90 days.  The waiting game begins now.

Hopefully things will be good on the exam.  Waiting for the results is the hard part.  I thought the military made you wait, boy was I wrong.

Well....I was awarded P&T.  But I think the C&P exam wasn't much help after I read over the results.  I did submitted two DBQs from my private doctor as well and I think that did it.  All in all it was a success.  I am grateful and this will help me and my family out a lot.
