    @ deirdre12, hello and welcome, your extended PIP award will be I expect be for 3 months as you have not stated that you are due a review. If so the extension is most likely you will be required to attend a F2F assessment this is only a guess on my part. May I advice you start Collecting supporting evidence, medical records any new hospital reports since your last award, anything that will support you claim for PIP.
