Hi group I have a disabled son from birth, he was born with short femur bones. Over the years he has had several leg lengthening. He's 16 now and has decided he doesn't want any more procedure on his legs. He also has a curved spine and will need a hip replacement. The doctors have said if he as any op on spine this can cause his neck and head to tilt to one side., leave him in a wheelchair permanantely or paralysis. He has difficulty in walking any distance it causes pain and discomfort. Hw as been on crutches for 3 years. They have stopped his dla from October 2016. I put in for an appeal they turnt this down saying he can walk. I believe I'm at fault for the way I filled in the former. I suffer with depression. Any advice please.
