Worried about assessments
My PIP runs till the end of the year, but have been called in 1st FEB 2019 for an assessment. Sent form back with an appointment letter for pain management course, then got my call of doctor for results of another Xray, have arthritis and Pellegrini- stieda calcifitation in left knee. Im also waiting for my ACL to be reconstructed. Have had six ops on my right knee 5 cartilage and open wedge tibial (take a wedge out of bone in leg straighten leg then plate it up) and arthritis.and waiting for a PCL op too. I also suffer with depression/ anxiety. Two years ago went for an assessment for ESA. Lady told me 5 mins into assessment that I wouldn't get it because I didn't have any paperwork to say when my op or pre op was, so you are fit for work, she then told me because you haven't any paperwork there is no need for a lower limb examination!!!! Told her about my depression/ anxiety with my medication, yet again she put me down with her words of, only people who are in Ashworth Hospital Maghull Liverpool have depresion. Ended up having to go through it all again at a tribunal which I passed, life can be so much easier if people listen. I'm sitting here now worrying and thinking that the worst is going to happen again.
