I have had Arthritis in my left knee for 14 years and have just managed to to live with the pain 18 months ago when I realised that I would have to get something done. About June of 2011 I got my scan results back and was informed that it was pretty bad. Previous to this I was informed I had Mortons Neuroma in my other leg (right foot) plus Osteopenia in my back. Since November I have had a arthroscope (left knee), steroid injection (left knee) and 4 weeks ago I was prescribed morphine patches.
Last November I applied for DLA and was turned down. I believe it was because I didn't have the condition long enough and was told to reapply in May. I have now got accumulative evidence to prove my condition is for the long term I just wondered what are my chances of getting DLA if I now reapply. The other thing I wondering at what disability rate should I apply for and can my wife get a carers allowance as well.
