PIP interview and updates

Good Morning everyone
i had my PIP interview on 26th Sept as my DLA is expiring on 18th of this month. Have to say the guy was pleasant enough although asked what i felt was a couple of trick questions regarding my mobility and who walked the dog after my husband had already said that he did, but anyway! I now have been told the wait is 6 werks for a decision which i expected.
my first issue is that i applied for a renewal of a blue badge and was given one that is valid for 9 days! So runs out on the 18th of Oct even though i sent them the PIP appointment letter. So basically i have paid £10 for 9 days use of the badge which seems very unfair plus a waste of time for them to even produce it.
my second issue is that i had a hospital appt on Friday and was told my lipoedema has now developed into Lymphoedema too which will have a bigger impact on my mobility and heaviness in my legs needing intense bandaging for 2 weeks changed daily until compression tights are delivered which i am meant to wear daily for the rest of my life when i can work out how i can put them on after a recent hip replacement and the need for a knee replacement next. Do you think i should be reporting this update to PIP or will they not take it into consideration as the interview has taken place?
thank you in advance
