Hi. I am new to this website. I recently (10 weeks ago) had heart surgery to replace a defective aortic heart valve, repair my enlarger aorta and install a pacemaker. I am recovering nicely. I retired in 1984 with a 30% disability for the heart problem and have now requested an increase in my VA disability. Has anyone had a similar surgery and gotten an increase in their disability %? If so, what was the increase? Also, Was there any temporary 100% disability given for the surgery and recovery? Thanks for any info you may have for me on this issue.
