I have a 20% service connected disability for my left knee. I tore my ACL on active duty in 1992 and had a scope & ACL reconstuction done. I recently had a second scope done and was told that I'd eventually need a complete knee replacement. I also hurt my shoulder on active duty and I was told it was just tendonitis and given a service connected disability of 0%. I knew I had a real injury a not just tendonitis but didn't really know how to follow up. A friend at work pointed me to get treatment from the VA and not just evaluations (which I didn't really know there was a difference). I just had an MRI and found out that I have two tears in my shoulder, one of the labrum and one in the bicept. I'm being sent to a surgeon for a consult as to whether I need surgery or just cortisone shots. Has anyone else had a similar problem? Did you need surgery? Did you get any % of disability for it? I first went to the VA for my shoulder 15 years ago and should have had this resolved back then. Thanks in advance for any help.
