Well, yes, its possible. You can get SMC S, under Bradley vs Peake, if you have 100% and an additional 60%.

Its also possible if you are housebound, need Aid and attendance, or have "loss of use".

Based only on DDD no.. doubtful, you would have to show that you were unable to leave the home that would be about the only way... Now if you have a seperate 60% rating above a 1`00% you could get statuatory housebound.... but I doubt that your 100% for your DDD.. how about you list you disabilities and ratings so we can give a better answer....
