@  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.

I scheduled a Dr. appointment because my knee was killing me. I cant sit very long and sure cant stand very long without my knee hurt at about an "8".(Prior to Iraq in 2003 I tore my medial mediscus and had a partial tear on my ACL. They fixed the medial mediscus but not the ACL and shipped me to Iraq.). While telling the Dr. about my knee I told her about my lower back going out when sitting for long periods of time. (SCed for DDD in my neck). The doctor X-rayed my back and knee and said that I had arthritis in both. That day she scheduled me for a bone scan. Anyone had one before? I assume it is to see how much Arthritis is in me. What are the chances of claiming DDD on my lower back? Thanks for any replies.

Sorry to hear about your additional ortho proplems, 'bubblehead80'. Do you receive comp. for your bilateral knee condition? Have you filed for low back, and incressed SC% for the arthritis conditions?

As you may know, the comp. clock starts when you file the claim.

Best wishes,

C.B.

No on the bilateral yet, I was going to wait and see what the bone scan results are and apply on all at once. I should have filed on bilateral but didn't know I could for a while (after reading it here) The lower back, from what I have read on here, one needs to be ordered to bed rest for a few months. A week usually does the job. Thanks for the reply.

I have had one for possible osteomylitis for my left ankle they took 2 sets of images the first set was with out the marker for comparison purposes then they put the radio active marker which is similar to calcuim so that it get absored to the bones. leave and then comeback later for the second set, and where it really lights up on the scan is where their is problems (in my case it was inconclusive)

Update: It was actually a Bone Density test and was told because I was over 300 lbs. that I couldn't use their machine. I was sent a letter telling me to scedule with an outside clinic to use if they accepted VA payments. I live in Arkansas so I called Mercy in Ft. Smith and was told they could do it because I was over 300 lbs. Anyone in Arkansas know where I can get one done or anyone know what I need to ask for when I call a clinic. Thanks.
