    You have sent as much information in as you can in the time frame that is available to your circumstances. If your F2F acessment happens before any further evidence comes available you will have to have the acessment and hope, see if your health condition meets the PIP descriptors to be awarded either the standard or enhanced allowance.

    Remember that PIP is about how an impairment affects you day to day not about what the impairment is.  You can only send them evidence that you have currently, but also you can explain exactly how this affects you.

    What descriptors do you think apply to you? Can you provide evidence to support that?
