Prostate radiation treatment ended but now Lupron shots


I finished prostate radiation treatments in March of this year and my oncology documents say in remission. I will be receiving Lupron shots until October of next year.  In your best guess will the VA reduce my 100% six months after the last radiation treatment or after the completion of Lupron?  If they try to reduce my percentage prior to completion of the Lupron shots, is that a good defense for an appeal for continued benefits?

You can try. As a rule when the PSA returns to normal, VA will adjudicate final benefits.
