    How long after ESA medical before you get the decision 6th Mar 11 at 8:42 PM
    Hello all I am going for my ESA medical this week not Atos, although they are recruiting staff at the minute to start doing these medical in the autumn here. I was just wondering when do i get a decision on the day or how long before I get if I have passed the capability test. As I lost IB last July and haven't received any benefit since then,until I applied for ESA in November and now I have to attend this medical. Are the descriptors much the same. My last capability assessment was a farce with the report stating in could carry my coat and bag with no difficulty, total lies as I actually had neither. I said my mum got my shopping for me and on every page of the report the doctor wrote goes shopping with mother. How can I prevent these lies being written this time around. It's astounding that it's the medical officers word against mine and who's going to believe me, I mean I've been medically retired over 2 years and have only received 13 mths incapacity benefit and then told fit for work despite chronic neurogical neck and shoulder problems, fibromalygia, trigger finger after and aero negative arthritis. I wish I was fit to work 27 years full time employment and now treated like scrounger within society.sorry rant over, I'm sure there's worse affected than me.:eek
