@  notapb1 : (18 August 2014 - 07:26 AM) Looking For Feedback. I Have Applied For Iu. Was Told To Come In For A Psych Eval And Diabetes Clinic. Received A Call From Va They Were Cancelling The Psych Eval As The Doc(?) Who Did It In March(Ptsd Increase) Was Asked For His Opinion And He Was Going To Submit That. This Is The Same Individual Who Told Me Off The Record About Iu And To Contact My Service Officer. Sounds Positive To Me, But I May Be A Little Bias. Thoughts?

Is your current rating already covered by the 20 year protection rule ?

No I don't think so. It's funny that now when I read that old award letter and how they referred to my claim for my back and neck when I was medically boarded from active duty for my lower back and foot from my accident. Then turned around, corrected themselves and gave it to me. That's why you shouldn't give up. Sometimes it's how we initially present it. I guess....

I need some advice/direction. I am 50% connected and one of the reasons is because of my back (they only rated my back 10%). Blew it out and had to have surgery for L5,S1 hurniated disc that causes pain down my left leg. OK, Last August I re-injured it.....went to the VA and after MRI surgeon said i rehurniated the disc and needed another surgery. I said ok, because i was in unbelievable pain. After I woke up, the doctor said i didnt have a hurniated disc but i did have a ton of scar tissue that he removed. Now my calf does not work....its dead...doc says he dont know why and that he didnt do anything to affect my calf!. Also the pain has returned with a vengence....Went for 6 week follow up and doc says post MRI shows guess what?? A hurniated disc at L5.S1!!!! I asked him, wasnt that the disc he was SUPPOSE TO TAKE CARE OF IN SURGERY...he shrugged his shoulders and said i dont know....then asked if i wanted another surgery!!!! I said no. Went to patient advocate and they said if i wanted another surgery (which i will have to have due to this pain that morphine wont touch) that I would have to go to Houston for a second opinion and then go back to Houston for the surgery at the VA there.

My question is what do I do? What should I file for? increase in disability? new disability because of dead calf muscle? CUE? I have no clue. Thanks

Just an update on my incompetency issue. It was all resolved in my favor and I was deemed competent. I submitted progress notes from MH provider and proof of accounts that I handled solely as well as a hand written letter from my spouse with a little background on how we handle our finances. I did not discuss any mental health issues. I did send in copy of couple of credit card accounts and my Roth savings account. Meanwhile awaiting the decision I took the advice of Berta and Jim Strickland. Thanks for all the encouragement and support Carlie and Berta. God bless you.
