Pip Review and with new issues

Evening All, I have recently submitted my PIP review (Due Aug 2024) and I have filled out based on condition deterioration causing reduced mobility, reducing my working days per week and the addition of hearing aids for both ears. In addition to this I have now had a diagnoses of CPTSD which obviously has an effect on my Day to Day issues., however when I put this in my original application it was dismissed and only my physical issues were taken in to account. 

My question is now I have 2 hearing aids and a diagnoses and under going treatment for the PTSD am I likely to be called in for a further assessment or will they now take this in to account rather than dismiss it as they did originally???

I appreciate its a "how long is a piece of string" Sinario

Any input appreciated

    Most if not all reviews have an assessment at the moment usually by phone but face to face possible now, in some areas reviews are taking upto 12 months from start to finish.
    Good luck.
