When I am reevaluated for disability percentage of prostate cancer, what should I expect?

Jim's Mailbag

I am on temporary 100% disability due to prostate cancer. I had my prostate removed. But several weeks before my first visit back to my doctor, I was given a re-evaluation by the VA. There has been no change in the rating. That was 7 months ago Prior to being diagnosed I had a 60% rating for combat realated injuries.
My question is after I am revalued again what can I expect my rating to be.

Ratings for the residual effects of treatment of prostate cancer usually are 20%, 40% or 60%. This correlates to the amount of urinary leakage you experience. The rating you receive for the residuals of prostate cancer treatment will be combined with any other ratings to determine your final overall rating.
