The good news is that yesterday the postman brought me a very nice letter!
The mandatory reconsideration people awarded me full rate PIP. My GP was pleased but also he said he was disgusted as they seem to be telling everyone they either can’t have it or it’s considerably reduced then when it goes to mandatory reconsideration they say yes…however I’m just pleased I didn’t have to go to appeal! He said there are so many people that just accept it as they are too ill to be upset by it. I have to say that it’s all down to my husband, I really couldn’t have coped with it
The bad news is that unfortunately the operation I had last November didn’t work and I now have four additional tumours, three in my chest and one on my thyroid. We were told they were in operable and that the only thing that can help me is immunotherapy, however, I’m being told that because of MS I might not be able to have it.
We are going to see a surgeon in Middlesbrough (4hour drive) who is saying he could possibly operate but has to open me up to see the tumours, we are also meeting with an oncologist who is an expert in immunotherapy.
All extremities firmly crossed!
