My husband has had a lot of health problems scince he was diagnosed with Polycystic kidneys and liver in 2010. Scince then he has had a dialysis, a kidney transplant, his own two kidneys removed a hernia repair. He was then diagnosed with Fibromyalgia after a battery of tests. All in al in 6 years he has bén through the mangle. He was of sick due to his low immune for a while then with all the pains and probloms of the fibro he was signed of sick. He started claming PIP in 2014. It took from feb 2014 to november 2014 to sort it out. He got a motability car which is now automatic. In ja this year he had a PIP assesment and a female who did not make it clear what she was tushed through 30 monutes of tapping a computer screen and asking questions which she ignored the answers to. Said thank you. The ling and short is the put him from 21 point to 8 on the living and no motability at points at all. So the car has to gone. Webare waiting for the results of the mandatory adsesment to see what happens. The results of all of this has sent him so low. I know we are not yhe only ones and i thank you for listening xf
