Gout and joint surgery

Question if anyone can answer...
I have gout, which has resulted in damage to my joint in the big toe. They are going to do a surgery to cut a section of the bone out and then screw the shortened bone back that hopefully the joint isn't grinding on itself anymore. I tried deciphering the VA chart...but i couldn't really figure it all out. Anyone know if this is something i can get some sort of disability rating on? I know ill be taking meds for the gout for the rest of my life..and not too sure what my foot will be feeling like.

Thanks in advance
