Hi I have just been refused DLA, I had a back operation in 2006 which went well and I returned to work a couple of months after it. I have suffered from then with severe pain at times and some weeks had to stay in bed a whole week, and it's been on and off like this since 2006. In June this year started having bladder problems wetting myself sometimes 4/6 times a day, and I now have another disc out I cannot dress myself properly put on socks/shoes with laces etc. I now walk leaning to one side and have to use a stick and can do about 15 steps per minute. I have always worked all my life and never been on benefits ever and now I genuinely need help its not there. I am on tablets for incontience plus back and leg pain which I have all the time now and I have since been put on anti depressants aswell. Any advice on where to turn would be appreciated thanks James.
