    Hi,

    I'm afraid no one can tell you what the decision is likely to be. For this you'll need to wait for the decision to made. Once you've had the assessment, leave it a week and ring ESA to ask for a copy of the assessment report to be sent to you, this will give you some idea what the decision is likely to be as they mostly go with the report. Good luck.

    You're welcome. Yes, these re-assessments are an extremely stressful time for everyone.

    Well i was in support group for years and years and my condition is degenerative.. I got put back into the work group after the assessment then made a new claim the following year and got put back into the support group .. Same assessor both times... U think its hit or miss...you can appeal and go to tribunal though but i was too ill to be doing it. Good luck
