    Yes still active, no compensation because my late husband's A1c was 6.3 and I put him on a diet so he wouldn't become a full blown diabetic. Then he got pancreatic cancer. This was in May 2015.

      Been over three years since my husband passed from pancreatic cancer. Think I only had one year to apply for benefits?

        Glad to hear you will be at least getting some benefits. My husband's A1c started to climb & I put him on a diet. His A1c was 6.3 and you need 6.5 to be considered a diabetic. I do not know if any of his other blood tests showed higher than 6.3. He went in for agent orange (before he knew he had pancreatic cancer) they took a chest x-ray and 10 tubes of blood and told him NOTHING. Three months later he was diagno...

          Does anyone know what the chances are for a 23 year old male having breast cancer?  Last year they diagnosed something else.  Has anyone else (male) had a Rad 5 and the biopsy came out normal?  I am just so worried about him.

            Yes I believe the herbicide had something to do with them both getting pancreatic cancer. So sorry about the loss of your wife.

                I called the VA at 1 800 827-1000.  They told me that I cannot file an Agent Orange claim since my husband is deceased.  He signed up for the Agent Orange registry about 2 or 3 months before his death.  :(

                    Wow your kidding.  The VA is putting you through all of this. How sad.  My late husband's blood sugar started spiking maybe a year or two before he got diagnosed with pancreatic cancer.  So sorry the VA is putting you through all this stress.  Pancreatic cancer needs to be on their list!  Too many Vietnam Vets are getting pancreatic cancer. I will also call a VA rep sometime this week, hav...

                      Hello. My precious husband went to the hospital with abdominal pains (constipation) on 5/19/2015 at which time a CT Scan was done and he has pancreatic cancer with mets to liver and lungs .... I am so very sad about this situation. He is still in the hospital ... had aspiration pneumonia so they were unable to start his chemo. He is a wonderful man - 68 years young!
