I was discharged from the military December of 2004 due to multiple convalescent for Right Knee issues (4 Knee Surgery’s). I am Service Connected for Right Knee Medial Meniscal Tear with Patellofemoral Pain Syndrome and Degenerative Arthritis that has been getting worse over time.
Due to the nature of the pain, I am submitting a (Secondary) claim for Depression due to Chronic Pain. Any advise on what I should do before/after submittal to support my claim?
Should I see a Counselor about my Depression First or wait for the VA C&P Exam?
Thanks in Advance!
