    2nd C & P

    I had radiation treatment for prostate cancer from 10/2007 - 12/2007. I submitted for compensation in 10/2008. I recieved the C&P exam in 3/2009. Back in October 2008 I sent the VA everything they needed including the pathology report showing I had a Gleason score of 7(4-3). I recieved a letter last week indicating that they had sent out a request to St. Johns hospital for the patchology report even thorugh they have a copy that I submitted. Since my submission for compensation was approximately 12 months after my radiation treatment, do you think that I will recieve a temporary 100% disability for six months and then start recieving adjusted monthly amounts? Thanks, Gary

    First C&p Exam For Prostate Cancer

    ibasser, A lot of stough to read through. Thank you for the response.
  3. I was diagnosed with Prostate cancer in June 2007. I've gone through 32 weeks of radiation treatment ending December 2007. I just found out last week(Oct. 2008) that I would get some type of disability for being in Vietnam. I filed a claim last week with a VSO. When should I expect an exam date? Since my cancer treatment was last winter will I get a temporary 100% disability? Thanks,

    Prostate Cancer

    Hi, I'm new to this forum. I was diagnosed with Prostate cancer in June 2007. I've gone through 32 weeks of radiation treatment ending December 2007 including raditation directly placed in the affected areas of my Prostate twice during that 32 weeks with 4 needles(brachytheaphy procedure)sp??. I just found out last week(Oct. 2008) that I would get some type of disability for being in Vietnam. I filed a claim last week with a VSO. The VSO said that I would be entitled to anywhere between 40% to 100% of disability. I have not been scheduled for a C&P exam yet. Is the VSO correct? Even if the treatment ended 10 months ago and my PSA test has gone down from 4.48 to .7? Appreciate any help.
