ESA and kidney disease

Any one offer advice please. Had one kidney out a couple of years ago. Remaining one has only about forty per cent function. I have chronic kidney disease stage 3 as well as reflux nephropathy. I am constantly in and out of hospital with kidney infections. Had sepsis twice. Constantly being sick but according to DWP I'm fit for work. Thanks

    I'm sorry to hear this. Was the decision to find you fit for work a recent one? If so then you have 28 days to request the Mandatory Reconsideration. You should put it in writing what you disagree with, stating which group you think you should be in and why. Were you previously in a group or on assessment rate and did you send evidence to support your claim?
