Diverticulitis secondary to IBS

Rate this question



I have recently submitted a claim for Diverticulitis secondary to IBS. I’m maxed out on IBS at 30%.

My diverticulitis causes a lot of distress and as such, it makes me lose a lot of work. 1-2 days a month for appointments, 1-2 days off of work for symptoms and an additional 1-2 days off a month for hospitalizations.

I should be good to go as my VA doctor filled out a DBQ and opined it was at least as likely as not aggravated by IBS.

Do you believe the VA will lump the diverticulitis in with IBS or will they rate it some other way.

They probably will combine it with IBS at 30% since that is max.  I have gerd combined with IBS.  I think you can only be rated on one digestion claim.  Gerd maxes out at 60% I believe.
