Hi I originally claimed esa in 2013 due to breast cancer , never had a f2f until December 18 and last week I heard back that they have stopped my esa my issue is that although I’m clear of the cancer I have other health issues some of which I already had prior to filling out my last form but have gotten worse over time anyway I walked into the room sat in a chair , shifting around to relieve my aches as and when I needed to , answered all her questions and on leaving she asked me to step up on the little stool in front of the bed which I did placing my hands on the bed for support and then left . I received the call telling me I had no points and the esa would be stopped , I phoned the dwp and was told to put in a mr if I disagreed with the decision which I did but in hindsight I should have waited until I received a copy of the decision makers report as it has so many lies it’s hard to believe it actually refers to me . I quote as it’s written.. The physical examination found that Mrs Thayre : was able to when lying down lift straight her right leg normally and lift his left leg normally (seem to change sex there) also was able to crouch to floor and back up again , there are many more that it states I did during the examination all of which I did none of as was sitting in the chair , my main question is even though I’ve sent in a request for a mr it was done prior to my receiving the paperwork so am I able to send in a second letter outline everything I dispute . Thank you
