Prostate Cancer Rating

Question:

Jim, to treat my prostate cancer the prostate was removed in 1997. In 2004, I underwent 6 weeks of external beam radiation. Stress urinary incontinence followed and in 2011 my sphincter had weakened to the extent of my having an artificial sphincter implant. Nine years later (11/10/20), I had my second artificial sphincter implant. Currently I'm 60% rated and convalescing at home for a period of 8 to 10 weeks. Do you feel the complete (Loss of Sphincter) is a secondary condition directly related to my primary condition of Prostate Cancer and Erectile Dysfunction?

 

Jim's Reply:

Yes. Your rating should be higher than 60% for all of the residual complications you're suffering. You should file a claim that says all those problems are secondary to the original cancer and each problem should receive it's own rating to add to your overall final rating. Good luck.
