HELP.  The agitato part is hard to put hands together, I only had the piece for 3 days, but any suggestions are welcome

Work on it hands-separate for a lot longer than three days before working on it hands-together.
What passes you ain't for you.

You've probably discovered by now that you need to work the hands separately until you're comfortable with the way your fingers move in close proximity to each other. Work on a few bars at a time, first each hand, then try putting them together. Each time you're going to work on it, go through the section with each hand first. It took me several months to learn this piece and after a couple years of playing it didn't keep it up. Now I'm back to learning it again and the Agitato section is the most difficult, but eventually the fingers "remember".
