Top tip - get a complete copy of your medical records relating to the injury including dates & location/extent of the break, the treatment, surgical procedure, rehabilitation, etc., and take it all to your first Medical Appointment - It should greatly speed-up the process.
They actually have all that. I was discharged with my arm im May from basic training. But the kind of discharge means I don't have to wait to re-apply and to come back as soon as I'm fit. I've gone away and got it all sorted I had minor adhesions that still hasn't been sorted. But I've had physio(which I actually should of had a while ago) to sort the issue and I'm doing a lot of crossfit/heavy lifting and circuits. I just hope the plates have nothing to do with the job itself, like to do with the pressure or anything.
Not quite sure I understand - were you medically discharged in May this year due to an injury that occurred in training, were you discharged because of an undisclosed pre-existing injury (your arm), or did you PVR from training a few months back, having declared the injury at your initial medical?
If discharged due to an undisclosed, pre-existing injury which wasn't declared and cleared at the AFCO Medical examination, then whilst the individual may re-apply when fit to do so, it is not assured. Technically, it could be viewed as a fraudulent application and re-entry is therefore not guaranteed. This isn't because of the type of injury but by virtue of the fact it was not disclosed when originally and specifically asked.
To be honest, it's like pulling teeth trying to get the true facts surrounding the circumstances of re-entry - an evasive individual starts alarm bells ringing.
If the individual physically joins, swears the Oath and Attests (signs-on), then is discharged, they are classed as an untrained re-entrant and require approval to be processed - based on their former service.
If the individual is discharged and sent home before physically "signing-on", they can apply without the need to get approval but must still be passed fit to enter and pass all expired elements of selection - Including re-taking the recruit test if they have not already scored high enough for their chosen branch.
If the plates went in before joining & were not declared at the AFCO medical, then any subsequent injury is entirely the fault of the individual. If it was declared upfront & the injury was attributed to training, then they must be passed fit before eligible to rejoin.
