Well, I am. Rated at 10 percent.
After my ETS in March 91, it took the VA just about a year to finally give be a favorable & fair rating.
What have been your experiences with the VA?
Do you still go for any treatments?
Any other information?
Same here, 10 % of the whole man, under a different program though.
Treatment: a while ago my DR. was giving me
electro simulation and after 3/wk for 3/mos.
I was getting some relief. I showed up one
Monday for treatment and they said that the
"agency" had failed to pay and they kicked me
out. I spent 12 days trying to get my case worker then went to my Cong. Rep.. Two days later they send me a letter giving me the
same phone number to call. Still have'nt heard from my case worker.
Remember Bruce that went shooting with use? He is a disabled vet, lost his foot when he fell out of a boat. If ya want I can hook you up with him if you need questions answered. I am sure he would be happy to help. Send me a e-mail if you want more info.
P.S. Did you get my last email??
Well I got out Mar '70 and it took about 25 years to get a rating that was high enough to get something because of it, been upgraded to 30% and is service connected so everything is free. You will learn to work the system, it's not too bad.
