My Navy Timeline for Radiculopathy

I am brand new to the MEB/PEB process. I've spent my year on in a LIMDU status with no improvement to my back(even after surgery, SI joint fusion) and months of physical and home therapy. Radiculopathy is the main claim for my referral. My PCM referred me to DES. I'll do my best to update my timeline as new events unfold. Below is where I am at as of now in the process. Can anyone give some insight as to what to expect from the VA/DOD in regard to Radiculopathy as far as rating goes? I've also had past surgeries on my shoulder(still have limited ROM) and hernia repairs.

04MAY2018 - Referred by PCM to DES
07MAY2018 - Meeting with PEBLO & Conference call with Attorney
14MAY2018 - (future)Have meeting with VA representative

Should be pretty quick, I had all mine scheduled like 2 days after initiating the MEB process. And memorize the ratings and the differences, so you know when it comes to neurology, when they are doing the questionaire, you know how to answer it properly.

UPDATE:
04MAY2018 - Referred by PCM to DES
07MAY2018 - Meeting with PEBLO & Conference call with Attorney
14MAY2018 - Had meeting with VA representative
18MAY2018 - VA Compensation claim submitted (Estimated Completion: 01/15/2019 - 08/28/2019)

Is it normal to have an estimated completion date so far away??
