I am wondering if you have any knowledge on what you think the outcome might be on my husband's C&P for an increase.
My husband had a C&P on Dec 11th 2014 for an increase and the doctor put down that he was exaggerating and that is so far from the truth.
Jim: I am 100% service connected disabled. If I live 10 years then die of natural causes, will my wife recieve a monthy check of any kind?
Jim: In Nov 2012 I had my prostate removed for cancer I was awarded 100% FOR 6 Months and then reduced to 60% in amount of $1100 a month it has been over two years still have no erectile function or when I do use alprostadil suppository it hurts so bad you can't do anything, I cannot more than half hour or before I have to urinate if I drink water, beer, gatorade, pepsi go longer .

When disabled veterans have their yearly lab tests done (blood&urine) for diabetes does the VA...
A. Check to see if you have your prescribed meds in your system?
B. Check for illegal drugs in your system?
I don't know that vets have yearly tests for diabetes. You may be referencing routine lab work (blood tests and urinalysis) during physicals that may note high blood sugars as well as high cholesterol and many other abnormalities.
I have a question that you may be able to give me an opinion on. In 1968 I was diagnosed with Adult Situational Reaction. Since in 1968, PTSD did not exist at that time, could you tell me if you think that is the same as being diagnosed with PTSD
I had a quadruple bypass in January and was in Vietnam. There is mild aortic valve sclerosis without stenosis. My current EF after surgery is 55-60%. Based on this information would my rating be in the 30% or 10% range ?
An update to my case that you have been following. I have completed (successfully) cardiac rehab and have at least one more disability payment left at the 100% level. More would be nice of course. I will keep you infomed of changes as they take place. I hope to hear from the VA before the end of March or very early in April. I would like to learn what the next step will be and what kind of rating they will give me.
I'm happy to hear you're doing well with the cardiac rehab. Your health is more important than the rating.
I filed a claim for coronary artery disease. My doctor says I have cad with a 30 to 40% stenosis of my left descending proximal artery. I am confused as to the VA's definition of ischemic heart. I have a normal ejection fraction and had a score of 8.3 on my stress test. I have been taking medication for four and a half years and the only real symtom I currently have is fatigue.
I have a question about a story on the WatchDog. It is entitled "Veterans urged to file discharge papers locally" , by Keith Strange.
I have also written him for clarification.
When I was discharged in '70, we were also advised to do the same.
This was before the advent of identity theft.
The papers we filed with our particular Counties, all became part of the "Public records" at that time. Use of this information for identity theft was unheard of at the time.
