If I appeal the rating decision and I am denied a rating increase back to 100% will I lose the 70% UI rating that they are proposing?

I recently had a reexamination not 2 years after i was granted 100% which was a reexam after my initial C&P which rated me 70% IU. My rating is being proposed to be reduced back to 70% IU which isnt a problem my concern is my reexam was only 20 minutes and nothing actually changed except I started seeing a VA psychiatrist again about 7 months prior to my exam.
