  • Can a 100 percent Disabled Veteran Work and Earn an Income?

    employment 2.jpeg

    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

Upcoming C&P Exam for Nerve Damage due to surgery; What happens in that C&P?


Question

Long story short. 🙂 My left knee is 30% Service connected.  During the ACL surgery they nerves across the knee were severed and I have no feeling in the outside of my leg from the knee to the top of the foot/ankle area and around the front near the top of my foot.  That area also no longer has hair.  The inner muscle on my calf is significantly smaller than the other.  I have an up and coming C&P exam with VES.   I would like to know what all they do in this exam.  Anyone have an idea?   I don't think it falls under paralysis of the nerve as I still have function.  I don't know if it falls under neuritis or neuralgia?  Anyone have an idea?

Neuritis and neuralgila should be listed in the VA Schedule of ratings-here: https://www.ecfr.gov/cgi-bin/text-idx?SID=e01889934e16ee0751373657d3b13a6e&mc=true&tpl=/ecfrbrowse/Tit

Does the 30% reflect the ACL scar? This decision reveals the 2018 change in ratings of scars. https://www.va.gov/vetapp19/files12/19191968.txt

ecfr is moving here is a link to 38CFR4 https://ecfr.federalregister.gov/current/title-38/chapter-I/part-4

Was the C & P exam for a secondary claim- nerve damage due to the 30% SC disability ?

Or was the claim filed under Section 1151?

Has the VA given you any type of diagnosis for the loss of feeling, etc?

Good morning! Thank you all for the response. My knee is rated at the following:

20%: meniscectomy with semilunar cartilage residuals, left knee

10%: left knee meniscal and ligament tear with osteoarthritis

0%: residuals, meniscectomy, left knee

0%: Scar

0%: Scars

I filed the claim as secondary to service connected knee disability using the online forms.  I am curious to what will be done in the C&P exam.

Thank you for the tip about Diagnostic Code 7804.  Fortunately my scars are not painful, otherwise I would now file for it with this new info.  Thank you all!

Neuritis and neuralgila should be listed in the VA Schedule of ratings-here:

https://www.ecfr.gov/cgi-bin/text-idx?SID=e01889934e16ee0751373657d3b13a6e&mc=true&tpl=/ecfrbrowse/Title38/38cfr4_main_02.tp

Neuritis is listed about 7/8th down on the scrollbar-to right hand side of your PC 

Neuralgia is listed somewhere there too-

We should have a copy of those blank C & P exams somewhere here under a search.

If this causes you instability of use of the leg, that should be mentioned by you at the exam.

Unfortunately, even if a disability is obviously secondary to a SC disability, many vets need to get an IMO/IME to establish that it is secondary.I believe your surgical medical records would certainly establish it as secondary and I sure hope the VA does not deny the claim.

The VA does not apply common sense to anything.

      While the BVA has some discretion here, often they "chop up claims".  For example, BVA will order SERVICE CONNECTION, and leave it up to the VARO the disability percent and effective date.  

      I hate that its that way.  The board should "render a decision", to include service connection, disability percentage AND effective date, so we dont have to appeal "each" of those issues over then next 15 years on a hamster wheel.  
    • 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,

    • I don’t say thank you enough to all of you...
      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.

      Last month June 2020, we over 50k visitors they viewed over 160k pages. Veterans and their advocates, spouses, children, and friends of veterans come looking for answers. 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.
