Hiya i was diagnosed with cancer in the pelvis in November 2015 and finished my radiotherapy and Chemo treatment in March 2016 the treatment worked and my tumor has shrunk and can't be seen, for which i'm so grateful. I am 58 yrs and hubby 62 yrs old. I have been awarded PIP std rate also my husband is my carer so we get carers allowance, I also got ESA in the support group but after a medical assessment was told i didn't get any points i must say i didn't understand the form and just ticked cancer/ recovering from treatment they sent me a letter to say my payments would stop in April this year, i did appeal but they decided i was not entitled to the benefit anymore we couldn't face going to a tribunal. We have cashed in a old pension and have been struggling on that but it is reducing very quickly. I Would like to know if i can apply for income support or retry ESA with some after treatment side effects that i now suffer from any advice please. Thank you
