hi in November 2016 I had a shoulder op and was off work fir six months.  I claimed esa but after 13 weeks I had to go to a medical assessment and wastge esa was stopped, despite having a sick note for another 14 weeks off work, as it was deemed I could do other work.  I am a plasterer  I Aldo have psoriatic arthritis which affects my hands knees and hips 

I am due to have my right shoulder operated on in July this year and I am concerned the same will happen with benefits again.   
I would also like advice on claiming pip as I struggle to do intricate things like doing buttons up. Holding cutlery sorting my medication I cannot walk far without pain either
