Was finally awarded for my PC. I was awarded 100% back to Apr of 2008. I am being scheduled for re-evaluation soon. I understand the residuals, but after reading through most of the posts here I didn't see my problem mentioned.
This is a little embarrassing, but here goes. I have been experiencing anal fissures since my treatment for the PC, and all the meds I'm on for all my other problems. My Dr. at the VA has been treating it with Botox, (I know, pretty funny. I tell everyone my butt gets a periodic face lift.) Anyway, the Dr. says that due to my seeds and the radiation involved, the fissures will not heal. He also says that while the surgery might or might not help, it also will not heal due to the seeds. So basically, I'll probably just have to live with the pain.
Does anyone know if this will be considered as a residual from the PC?
Thanks

Prop, I would think that the fissures would be considered residuals from the prostate treatment and below is the rating I've seen. You can check further here to see what you can find.  http://ecfr.gpoaccess.gov/cgi/t/text/te ... 5.2.104.54
