HI Gem, this isn't something I have experienced myself or with regards to endo but I have heard some horror stories about decisions they have made with regards to peoples health and their ability to work etc. If you feel you need to appeal then I would say appeal x

Thanks Hun they said that they think I'm fit enough to do some work, when I'm in pain I take oral morph, dilinac and paracetamol I can just about remember my name and get my self from the bed to the bathroom without falling never mind try do work! It's digusting because they go on a form which they issued in July and only had the medical last week so as u know ur self things change x

Things certainly do change! I would approach them to appeal this. Maybe approach your GP / gynae and ask him / her to write a letter detailing your condition and that you struggling with day to day tasks etc. Good luck and I hope you receive a positive outcome xx
