A patent foramen ovale, will this be an issue?

@Maxpowers look at it this way, whatever the outcome, you found out things about yourself you would have been oblivious to if not for your WAFU medical. Good luck.

A quick update . Just had a bubble contrast and now that will be sent back to the ticker quack, he will put his 2 cents in and send it all to capita, but he will go through it with me before hand ....so one is still here waiting.

Yeah I’ve been told its a common one so hopefully its not going to be an issue, can’t find anyone being turned away because of it anyway.

In the same position as you mate, currently trying to re-join the Royal Marines I use their forum but came across your predicament, and I kept in touch with this thread to see how things are turning out for yourself. I’m awaiting my documents/notes as my specialist is jotting up my report to give to capita/senior medical cell officer so they can finally approve me as I have no issues been going through this debacle for about 2 and a half years unfortunately the NHS in my local area is struggling so appointments and treatments are slow to get around. Give me a shout so I can find out what the score is if you get the all clear apparently mines the size of a pin hole and gives me no troubles whatsoever.
