I am serviced connected for severe flat feet with arthritis and plantar fasciitis. Last year i had bunion surgery on my left foot, My Va Podiatrist recommended it because of
the arthritis and it was because of my service connected feet. I put in a claim and i was denied, They said it was unrelated to my service connected disability. I wrote a statement saying what my podiatrist had told me and they reopen the claim. This time i sent in a statement from my podiatrist saying it was directly caused by my service connected condition.
They denied a second time . is there anything i can do other than a long appeal ? Any help appreciated.
