    7 months of waiting.........

    and I've been placed in to the ESA Support Group (transfer from IB).

    It's been 7 months of hell but at least I can put it behind me for a while now.

    Thought I'd let everyone know that there are good stories too !

    I sent LOTS of evidence in with my ESA50

    Good luck to everyone else who is waiting, ATOS can get it right

    I am so pleased for you andy, that is brilliant news. It is so good to hear when things go right and people get the right decisions.
    What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.

    Thanks all

    Thought it was nay fair to let you know after you had all supported me so much.

    I passed my driving test 2 weeks ago

    I'm not able to drive at the moment though because I had my long awaited shoulder surgery last Thursday. It should have been a day case but I had problems breathing after the nerve block. I had a GA too but as its such a painful op they give you a nerve block too and they can cause your chest muscles to go numb too so I was on oxygen for 36 hours and I was awake for the first 24 hours after surgery because they couldn't get my pain under control with already taking MST.

    Still, I'm home now and will be in a sling for another.2 weeks and recovery expected to take anything from 4-7 months for a 70% recovery.

    I hope everyone else is as well as possible - hugs to you all xx

    Andy well done on getting the award, now you need to ring the dwp to see how long they have given you as the time length does vary.
