    PIP is taking anywhere up to 10 months at the moment for a decision, so a few months wait is pretty normal. 

    Remember no one gets PIP for a condition, you are assessed in relation to your functional ability to perform the PIP descriptors.

    You're welcome @mccallum73, that's quite alright, no one can know everything about this if they've never gone through the process before :) Do keep us updated when you can, and let us know when you hear more from the DWP.
