HAD my PIP tribunral yesterday @ bristol . age 55 had accident @ work over 20 yrs ago left me permintient disabilty damage to lwr back spine degenervative . . treatable, not curable awarded 10 % spine issue industrial injurys for life . Orthopedic surgeons report back 1999 stating how accident damaged left my back spine . over years had treatnment to keep me mobile take iburofeon as required 500mg , turmeric psyomassage , reguar jaquzzis, steam baths . HOWEVER last 2, 3 years as dengenrative nature injury , i now find standing upright in ques for more 1-5 min very pain full have to sit down also so i stand start wailking the pain goes 2 out 10 up to about 7-8 out 10 if i try walk more than 20 meteres bottom garden back if i push it to 50 meteres 9-out 10 pain scale . SO i applied for PIP MOBILITY dec 2018 jan/ refued by DWP jan 2019 , march 2019 applied got approved by tribural tribunral 24 oct 2019 . i got turned down up held DWP DESTION . Reason my eveidence ortopedic surgeons report 20 yrs old not current , although as judge, chairman said yes i have back problem not issue .
