Prostate Cancer

Question:

I had surgery for prostate cancer 2009 and I was rated after at 60 percent after the surgery. Now the cancer came back and I am 100 percent. The doctor wants to take the prostate out. Will my rating go down to zero? Thank you

 

Jim's Reply:

No, if you have another surgery similar to the original procedure, the process of ratings will be much like the last time. You'll have the surgery and be at 100% for a few months and then likely drop back to 60%. Good luck.
