Q306: I’m a Vietnam veteran who served in Vietnam 1969 – 1970. I am service-connected for PTSD, diabetes, and ischemic heart disease. Ten years ago I had clogged intestines. The doctor said my small intestines were ischemic. He had to remove over 3 feet of my small intestines. For the last 10 years since my surgery I suffer from constant constipation. Can I put in a SMC claim for partial organ removal?
