I was sent to an Aid & Attendance Exam. My wife is my provider who is a physician who has to stop working to take care of my bed sore, injection, physical therapy, feeding, bathing, etc. I have a lot of spinal nerve problems that keeps me bedridden. Unbeknownst to me, the exam physician stated that I am bedridden 8 hours a night and 5 hours during the day. I found this out through a rep that read the exam. I clearly stated to the physician that I am in bed all the time except when my wife gets me in a wheelchair and gets me in the shower. My question is, did the physician just screw me out of being truly bedridden? Thank you very much in advance.

    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. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, rambling introduction or story.

    Again – 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.

    exclamation-mark-orange-gold.jpg How To Post

    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."

    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial of your claim?


    Your first posts on the board may be delayed before they appear as they are reviewed. The review requirement will usually be removed by the 6th post. However, we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.

    This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before hitting the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims, and this helps us do that.
