VA Disability and hysterectomy

Just had a total hysterectomy yesterday via Da Vinci robot. I am a veteran and I am currently rated 50% disabled by the VA. I spoke with a office and was told that I need to claim the hysterectomy as soon as I have it done since part of my disability was endometriosis. I was just curious if anyone has gone through this process? My understanding is that I can file the claim online through eBenefits.com and that hysterectomy is typically calculated as a 50% disability. Does that replace the endometriosis, or add to it as far a disabilities go?

Re: VA Disability and hysterectomy

Hi Quixi, I'm not sure if the endometriosis, replaces or adds to it or not. If you are rated for more than one disability they will do a combined rating and get the percentage front that, and there's a chart for that. You should be able to claim online, but I always find it better to talk to someone. So try calling the Veterans admin office and speak to someone directly and they should be able to tell you about the rating and how it's calculated. They should be able to walk you through it.

Good luck
(((HUGS)))
