  • I was accepted for CPP due to an EMG/nerve test that was abnormal. Also my report and the Drs was very thorough can't stand long, can't walk more than so many minutes, can't stand to cook or do dishes. Send in all your Dr.s consults and test results. Do you have sciatica in your leg besides having knee issues? Have you seen an Orthopedic Surgeon about your knee issues? I hope when you appeal you can get accepted. Charry

  • If you have the means to do it, a lawyer could help you as well.
