TOPIC: Esa claim, health category’s

Esa claim, health category’s 4 months 2 days ago #232207

Hi I’m hoping to apply for contribution based esa once my ssp runs out,
I rang today and the person on the phone couldn’t find my health problems on there drop down menu so I said I’d ring them back

So I’ve had Cauda equina syndrome twice with the second operation Christmas past, it’s left me using crutches to walk but I have to use wheel chair for shops etc etc as I can’t stand or walk for more than a couple of minutes before my back / hip hurts really bad and my leg goes out from under me.

I can’t feel my bladder or bowel anymore due to injuries of the spine during Cauda equina, so I have to wear pads and sometimes I have to manually remove bowel movements if I don’t have an explosion,

So wot are the specific health headers I should say which would be on her menu to click

I'm afraid I have no idea what is on their system but it is not important as you will have a chance to explain your problems in detail later, perhaps use you continence issues.
