Yes, the appeal was for my son, who is just about able to walk with great difficulty, he also struggles with fatigue so I have had to do all the appeal stuff, researching anything that may help and it has been a horrendously anxious time for both of us, it has made his MS worse. We couldn’t get any one to represent him at the appeal because of cuts but the CAB lady did the submissions for us thank goodness. There is only one person for the whole of the large area where we live.
There was just one judge and a ‘specialist physician’ there, he asked a few questions how it affects him etc. Think they must have read everything before we got there as it was so quick. It did surprise me that he read the latest report from the neuro as most people said they wont look at anything after the medical which was 18 months ago now. Any how only in there a short time and they said wait outside for a few minuets, they called us in and said he had won and in view of the last report they have recommended no re exam.
Will he still have to do PIP I wonder?
I feel so sorry for people on their own with no one to fight for them, It is horrendous putting sick people on trial basically.
