PIP Changes

Hi, does anyone know what changes I need to give to PIP?
My main disability is getting worse and I now, after a basic operation, I can hardly walk let alone drive!
Probably just write to them, but I dont think I can handle doing another form!  CAB helped me so much with the first form and appeal, which I obviously won.

    Hi,

    Reporting a change of circumstances means more forms and most likely another face to face assessment. There's no guarantee that you'll be awarded a higher rate and before reporting any changes then you should get further advice from either your local welfare rights, CAB or any other disability advice centre near you.

    You must also have had the condition for at least 3 months and expect it to last a further 9 months. With only recently having an operation it's normal not to be feeling very well and possibly struggle with daily life. Your Consultant will most likely be expecting your condition to improve slightly sometime in the near future as usually a Consultant won't operate if there's no chance of improvement.

    I would urge you to get further advice before reporting any changes.
