    Hi @Kayedawn, and welcome to the community!

    I'm so sorry you didn't get the outcome you were hoping for, it certainly sounds like you could benefit from some additional support. Are you considering appealing the decision? Scope have some guidance on the appeals process you may find helpful, and many of our members have had successful appeals themselves. You may also like to connect with others in our chronic pain category.

    Let us know if there's anything we can offer guidance with, and hope you and your husband are as well as possible today.
Complete our feedback form and tell us how we can make the community better.
