Hi C,

I'd certainly recommend that you go ahead with the appeal. However we cannot give individual advice on claims or appeals see FAQ

My advice would be to read the guide in the members area on DLA Appeals, but you also need some 'face to face' advice from a benefits adviser.

Your local CAB should be able to help or Community Legal Advice
can advise on local help in your area.

Hope this helps.
