    Hi 

    You have 1 month to put in mr but they will allow late ones if there is valid reason .

    I wouldn't wait for Xrays as that doesn't show how you are affected day to day . The best evidence is your own examples of when you try and do a task , or a statement from someone who sees you try and do tasks 

    A Mr will be looked at by new dm so yes they can change decision already made but in most cases they don't change the decision , the success rate isn't that good 

    Success rate at tribunal is a lot better 

    Let us know how you get on
