I had a change of circumstance f2f last week as l got OA in my ankles and needed more surgery. I have already been through the stress of the 1st one while getting both hips replaced and a knee replacement at 42 years old due to ostioarthritis. I still have to get through my other knee being replaced. But l ended up getting it in my ankle and needed surgery to fuse my ankle. I am on heavy medication and have not been able to drive for months as l had no concentration level and had to use my sat nav to go a road that l drove for 15 years. I told the lady at my f2f that l could not drive anymore as my concentratiom was so bad because of pain and l needed a sat nav to promt me. She mentions it in her report a few times that l need sat nav to plan a journey yet when it comes to the question for points she ticked l could planand exacute a journey without aid. Is sat nav not an aid? And she also told a few other things that were not true so basically l could not get enhanced rate by a point according to me calculating it. And l needed enhanced to get an automatic car.
I have not had my desition yet from dwp. Does anyone know if they just go with points awarded or the full report as it contradicts itself in a few questions?
I will need to call dwp on monday but its so stressful that l just went through that process for the 2nd time to get nothing more. I just feel so down with it all!
