@  maxwell18 : (16 November 2014 - 09:04 PM) I Still Have To Bitch About The Navy Hosp Cutting My Meds By 2/3 On My Norco. 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.

On 04/06/11, I received notification from VA that my claim was approved on 04/05/11. On 04/08/11, the retro was in my bank account.. They awarded me 30% going back to 09/30/10. This bumped me up to 80%, which totally surprised the heck out of me!
So far, this claims process has been tough on me, but I do consider myself extremely lucky and blessed that it has progressed at the speed that it has.
On 06/08/10, I got my 10% re-instated for my scar-lower back and for the shrapnel still there.
On 08/05/10, I got 10% retro for IHD from to 02/22/10 to 08/05/10.
On 08/05/10, I was upped to 60% for my IHD with new and current tests that were sent in.
On 04/05/10, I was awarded 30% for the PTSD.
I am in the process of burning my PTO hours before I leave my job. My VA pulmonologist has already signed by FMLA form for me to begin the process of leaving my job. I am only working 1 or 2 days a week and all of my responsibilities have been turned over to someone else. This keeps the stress off of me. With my PTSD, I am having a very difficult time with dealing with the job.
Thank you all for your help and the information that I have gotten thru this site. I could not have gotten this far without you!!!
Have a very blessed day!!
Rockman
