Hi, I just wanted to thank everyone for their knowledge. 
I applied for pip in September 2022 due to kidney failure and dialysis at 31 years old. Currently waiting for transplant. 
First outcome was no pip, 4 points on daily living and 4 points on mobility. 
I’ve decided to appeal after reading the forum, I prepared good evidence and today I’ve got a phone call from DWP. They asked me few questions to clarify some facts and after that awarded me enhanced daily living and enhanced mobility with back payment
thanks

    Well Done, hope you get one soon, no doubt just a matter of time. You shouldn't have to have Appealed. That's Just 'ridiculous'.
