Where do they get these Assessors from?
I suffer from COPD(significant),carpel tunnel syndrome in both hands (had surgery,no improvement),torn shoulder ligaments,(2 operations,first little success,still recovering from second).Osteophytes,(shattered bone fragments) removed from shoulder.I need a replacement shoulder but have been strongly advised against this due to my chest problems and a strong possibility of contacting pneumonia on recovery.Sciatica,high cholesterol and severe breathlessness. I was on PIPs but had it refused on reassessment.The assessor said I had a strong handshake,(I could only use my thumb and one finger When I tried to explain my problems she told me "Ican't listen to you and type at the same time".The rest of the report were just outright lies. I am still waiting for a Tribunal date after over 8 months.
