Not sure wher to start. My husband was admitted to hospital on 8/27. HIs o gen was down to 80. Diagnosed with pulmonary embolism. THIS IS HIS SECONDD TIME FOR THIS. So he was put on blood thinner for life now.
the doctor did say it was putting pressure on his heart, kidneys, and his diabetes was running high. He was diagnosised with acute kidney failure. But he is also already in third stage and really close to forth stage.
He also has mitral valve leakage. And he had replacement of his aortic valve in 2013. And it is leaking again. He is already service connected for cads. I’m thinking of filing claim again for the valve problems. I have seen several getting service connected for it.
Also he has had sleep apnea for several years. He had to wear it in the hospital.
So I’m just throwing it all at the va hard and heavy. Lol
ok, can someone give there opinion on this. Bva just approved an increase on diabetes to 40%. This was May 30. still waiting for retro. Been told different stories. They remanded the claim for kidney failure and sent paper work for tdiu, for him to fill out and send back. So then our Vso told us that it looks like they are going to hold out the retro until they approve the iu. Is this the normal procedure?
