Hi, my name is Karoly and i am unsure if someone could help me on this.

I twisted my knee in 2021 december and torn the meniscus. I had issues with my knee before from an accident but now i am barely able to walk and any movement is painfull even with painkillers. The Doctor decided i will have surgery on the knee. Universal credit did assessement and they told me the decision is i am fit for work. I can only walk for small distances and need to stop due pain and knee giving in. I have trouble sleeping-recived Amitriptyline and even with it i struggle. I am quite depressed and isolated at the moment. Do i have a chance to challenge the decision or there is anything i can do? 
Sorry if it is written not perfect, English is not my first language.
