Brain tumour and pip stopped after review .
I have a cavernous sinus meningioma which is benign and inoperable . I was awarded pip in 2015 until June 2018 at both standard rate . The brain tumour is central in my brain pressing down on crucial nerves , it bled causing stroke symptoms resulting in a weak left side a numb face and six nerve palsy of the left eye . I had stereotactic radiosurgery in 2016 which makes me really tired . The tumour has not responded to treatment and is still there meaning I have 3 head MRI scans a year . 3 visits to the surgeons and MDT meetings with brain ENT surgeons and oncologists 3 times a year . I see the eye surgeon twice a year . I had my pup review in June and a home visit by a nurse from Capita in September who said she didn't need to see all my medical letters etc or medication which I take which is 12 tablets a day . Today I've received the dreaded letter from pip they've stopped my money . Surely that's right .
