    HI and welcome,

    I'm sorry to hear that you didn't think it went well. It's difficult to predict anything at this stage. If you wait a week then ring DWP to request a copy of the assessment report to be sent to you. This will give you some idea what the decision is likely to be because they mostly go with the report.

    Fingers crossed that the right decision will be made for you. Good luck.
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.
