    Hi @sharon13 - Welcome to the community & thank you for joining. I hope the recovery from your open heart surgery is going well. In what way are you having a difficult time with PIP? Hopefully someone may be able to help, or advise, if you say.

    Hi @sharon13

    Thank you for asking about my surgery, it’s been very difficult but I’m getting there, it’s a mechanical valve and I’m on warfarin my INR is never good nor stable now because of lots of mental health problems and 3 operations on my trigemral nerve now got to go to tribunal I feel like giving in but I can’t work and £58.00 per week is difficult to live off I got no contributions from work so esa is income based but oh is working
