I have been service connected @ 50% and on appeal for 3 years. Claim was for residuals due to 10 knee surgeries including replacement. The problem is I have to wear a compression stocking due to lymphedema developed from knee surgeries. This stocking is so strong and tight it requires silicone lube to get it on and there is no way I can get it off with out help from another person. If I were to travel without my wife I would have to beg or pay someone to help me. When traveling to VA hospitals they will put my wife or other up just to help me get the stocking off. Even though I am not totaly disabled would this need for care make me eligble for A&A?
