I Contacted Customer Service Or What Ever You Want To Call It Who In Turn Contacted The Navy Hosp Pensacola Commander Who In Turn Did Nothing. Thanks To All The People That Are Affair Of There Jobs And I Feel That Medical Malpractice Should Come Into Place. I Guess Just Do What Ever They Want To Because They Can, But Don't Give A Sh T For The Vets That Suppose To Being Supporting From All The Military  organizations. This Is Not The Way They Have Been Trained And Promised To Do.

@  Asiadaug : (16 November 2014 - 02:08 AM) "rolled" Not Ruled! :)
@  Asiadaug : (16 November 2014 - 02:07 AM) Thanks. I Have Seen The Fast Ltr 10-35 And Have Seen Cases Where The Va Has Apparently Agreed That Tinnitus Can Have Delayed Onset. I Did Not In Looking Over The Fast Ltr See Where They Had Ruled 10-028 Into That. And, I Am Not Sure In The Vas Issuance Of ‘policy’ Type Letters How They Might Roll In Previous Instructions Into Newer Ones. Maybe There Is Some Intranet Traceability Capability? I Was Just Curious As There ‘appeared’ To Be Conspicuous Absence Of That 10-028. I Am Assuming 10-028 Was Written In 2010. But It May Be I Should Not Assume Anything.

hello friends

i just got back from reopening my claim yet again after being denied they told me it was still open just bring in new evidence so i did , this time i submited the x-rays and the x-ray doctors reports and the pulmonary function test results .

the claim adjuster asked told me that if i didnt have a report from a doctor saying that my lung condition was directly caused by asbestos the would denie me yet once again .

so she asked to see my records to see just what i was submitting she got about half way through and said "" you got them this time , you have just about all of the symtoms listed with asbestos " which was what they were looking for when i filed previously but they failed to look at . if you know what i mean ?

if i hadnt gotten the pulmonary doctor do the test and make the report out as he did i would still be screwed . sorry fot he language but thats what i would have been . it seems they are afraid to say what is really wrong with you and they hide the truth by saying its just a minor abnormality . but if thats the case why did you put down there chronic ( copd ) . this is one of the many questions my wife and i asked the doctor during my last visit . he tells me the va forbid him from signing anything that may help me with my claim and he wrote it up as he did . go figure ?

oh yes , like this one there is some scaring in your lungs but its not enough to kill you .

to make a point , my previous doctor had knowledge that my service connected condition had gotten worse , he would make note of it in my medical records but wouldnt tell me just treat me for it and send me on my way but this doctor was a good guy he told me mr livingston i think you need to take this and go to the claims office and have your claim upgraded . so i did and they upgraded my claim just like that .

but not more than a year later he was reassigned to doing desk work onanother floor . so you tell me whats going on ???

ok enough of me going on just venting sorry . i got an award letter and i need someone to tell me just how long after reciving the letter does the arears show up and if its withen the month and close to the end will the changes show in the following months check or what please tell me how this works . thanks for being there , the info here has made a great differance in my knowledge about how to do this and how to put up a good fight . wish me luk , oh yes its gotten to where i cant drive anymore guys breathing has gotten worse pray for me as my wife and i do for all of you and stay strong ,
