DLA after a THR

ikesotherikesother Posts: 171
Hi there, im currently waiting for a date for aTHR, getting DLA LRC and HRM; I was wondering whether the DLA stops immediately after my op or whether I will have to go for a medical etc at a later date. Thanks :wink:

    Hi Ikesother

    DLA is usually revised or stopped depending upon peoples circumstances i.e whether or not they get better or worse. For example if the health and ability of someone on DLA improves or becomes worse then it is their responsibility to inform the DWP of the circumstances.

    I hope that answers your question. By the way could you let us know what you mean by LRC and HRM. Thanks Simona
