I’m absolutely fuming right now😡😥 as I have been signed off sick for 6 months due to having bone on bone oesteoarthiritis in my right knee had xrays in Dec 2019 and my right knee has progressed to end stage oesteoarthiritis within 20 month period .
I’ve had to claim Universal credit due to lack of income and my mobility has deteriorated Due to extreme pain .
I also have meniscal posterior root tear in my left knee which I’ve had physio for but am starting to experience terrible pain when weightbaring and have been walking with limp past four weeks with it.
I’m in receipt of pip but only get standard rate mobility and have been urged to notify DWP as my Arthritis is getting worse.
I was awarded pip 4 months ago.
I attended health assessment few weeks ago and have had decision back today stating I’m fit for work ,which I disagree with as I’m struggling walking up down stairs and with walking any distance .
I’ve got medical evidence to prove my disability but UC haven’t acknowledged this I feel.
I have pre -o p at hospital on Friday ,As I’ve been on waiting list for two months for TKR .
I’ve rang citizens advice today and I have an appt in 2 weeks to pursue disagreement with UC and to pursue trying to claim more pip payment because of my deteriorating condition .
I wondered if anyone had been through this process and could advise me further .
Thanks for listening Julie .
