Just had pip assessment! 3 months 2 weeks ago #205836

Just had pip assessment.. got there 15 mins early then went in half a hour late, omg their chairs are so uncomfortable!! So 45 min journey 45 min wait then was in assessment for 90 mins, the lady kept saying I don’t need to know that, time after time, on reflection now iam home and in bed, I don’t think i got to give a true picture of how my condition affects me :( Also do i get any points for being in continent? I use pads and have to change my clothes a few times a day

I'm sorry but I've given up trying to predict the Decision from how the assessment went!

Based on your post and providing you have explained your problems in detail on the ESA50 then I would expect you to score for the Controlling your Bowels activity, but I'm not the Decision Maker.

ESA decision usually take 2-4 weeks.

I'm really sorry, to many posts this week :blush:

Based on what you posted you would score two points for needing aids (the pads) to help you with your toileting.
