In receipt of standard rate mobilty and living , has gotten worse should I report worsening?
hi, everyone. I received PIP for a year in 2016 , when my condition got worse. I reported it with the result that I lost it all. i appealed , after a lot of heart ache, and got to court. I won , with the court saying that DWP had grossly underestimated and judged my various conditions and granted me the standard living and mobility rate for 10 years (till 2028). In january last year i had openheart surgery which went very wrong. I got sepsis, kidney failure , collapsed lung , had to be reopened and ended up after more heart failures, and got a pacemaker in the end. After a few months of recovery, i noticed that my legs or mobility condition (chronic compartment syndrome) was getting worse and I can not walk more than 5 metres without pain and having to stop. I saw the specialist from bristol in january and he confirmed that the condition was worse now. He also could understand that after so many severe operations last year, that I did not want to have another very difficult dangerous operation. He can not do anything about this without a big operation. I am a lot less mobile now compared to 2018. I am scared and don't know what to do. I am less able to leave the house since april/may 2019. Should I report this and lose everything again? even though the court granted it me till 2028? I have a blue badge, should i just be happy with that? Anybody has simular or any advice for me. Thanks Gez
