Hi, my name is webstereve! Pip claim

webstereve Member Posts: 3 Listener
Hi I recently had my telephone assessment that I had to wait 18 weeks for. I had already been claiming pip for 3 years prior on my first face to face I scored 10 on motabilty and 10 on daily living so lower rate for both. My first assessor noted in report things were unlikely to change. Took it to tribunal and got rewarded the 2 points in 10 mins for motabilty side. Now for some reason I had to do a completely new claim so did that just before Covid I had seen the specialist and had MRI scan and reports show my discs I’ve already had surgery on are bulging again. So if anything my condition has got worse and need surgery again awaiting to see surgeon obviously my hydro has been froze because of Covid. But I’ve had results from assessment and I’ve lost mobility. He has described it as mild lower back pain. The assessor was not very pleasant and did not have a good phone manor at all. So I’m going straight in for mandatory have my latest scan pictures and report to. I have no feeling or reflex in my left leg or foot, and permanent nerve damage. But he never listened to any of that or what I said. The phone assessment lasted under 30 mins when I had my face to face one was over an hour long. But he listened to me and asked a lot more questions. I’m wondering if anyone else is having this problem. I’m not sure how I can go from scoring 10 then 12 to 0 when my condition is worse now. It’s just so stressful
