C/P Exam 4 conditions, Want to Deny 1

I have an upcoming C/P exam for 4 conditions which includes plantar fascitis. 

However the VA has already granted me 30% for flat feet (my claim has not been fully decided yet but they just gave me that 30% rating even though claim is still incomplete). 

I want to DENY being seen for plantar fascitis, while being seen for the other 4 conditions of my C/P exam. Is this possible?

I am very paranoid that if the new examiner may indicate something about my flat feet (saying it is mild) and then the VA decreases my 30%.

It is hard to get a C&P taken back once it is started.  You can try to call the C&P office and ask what the exam is for and tell them you are already rated for flat feet.  That is your best bet.  Just remember to always show up for a C&P exam in that a failure to show is a sure ticket to denial, even if it is already rated.

"Not showing up" for a c and p exam is Lithuaniun for "deny that Vet".  The VA takes "not showing up" for a c and p exam to mean you are abandoning your claim.  

You need to go.  

Did your feet somehow get "not flat"?  I dont see how that could happen.  

Frankly, I dont worry about reductions (ever).  I am familiar with the "reduction" regulation AND I try to practice "worry less" and pray more.  (Phil 4: 6 and 7) 

 Or, Will Rogers is quoted as saying "Worrying" is like paying a bill that may never come due.  Lastly, my father used to say, "Worry never robs tommorrow of its sorrow, only today of its happiness."

Take your pick.  

1.  Dont worry because you are prepared, and you have read this: https://www.law.cornell.edu/cfr/text/38/3.344

2.  Dont worry because of any of the 3 quotes, above.

    Have Questions? Get Answers.

    Tips on posting on the forums.

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery instead of ‘I have a question.
    2. Knowledgeable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title.
      I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, rambling introduction or story.
      Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph, there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.
    Leading too:

    exclamation-point.pngPost straightforward questions and then post background information.
    • Question A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    Rephrase the question: I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • Question B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
    Rephrase the question: I was involved in a traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?
    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial of your claim?”

    You’ve just been rated 100% disabled by the Veterans Affairs. After the excitement of finally having the rating you deserve wears off, you start asking questions. One of the first questions that you might ask is this: It’s a legitimate question – rare is the Veteran that finds themselves sitting on the couch eating bon-bons … Continue reading
