    Hi @Karen1966, welcome to the community!

    Best of luck with your appeal, fingers crossed for the outcome you're hoping for. We have a few other members of the community who also have spinal stenosis who you might like to chat with: @lilydj, @laineybug83 and @NicolaH. You might also like to visit our chronic pain discussions.

    Do let us know if there's anything we can assist you with at the moment, and hope today is as kind as possible to you!

    Hi karen and welcome

    So sorry you are going through this, it is hard to understand how some decisions are made.
    If this was a first tier tribunal you can ask for a statemnet of reason which might explain more
    You can only appeal to the UTT if there has been an error of law but it is unlikely and you will need a trained advisor to look at it


    Be all you can be, make  every day count. Namaste
